Stamp Something and Stampin for the Weekend DTs

I didn't have much internet time this week but I have 2 cards to share today

Over on Stampin' for the Weekend our challenge this week is "Be My Valentine". If you're not the Valentine's type then you have the option to include a wedding project for your entry instead.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and they are giving a wonderful prize of a $25 coupon for the store!! 

I am also entering this into the Simon Says Challenge which is a photo inspiration challenge,  Magnolia Down Under Challenges as I used their sketch and Fussy & Fancy Friday with their theme Hearts

Papers: Bo Bunny Persuasion & Creative Imaginations
Image & Sentiment: Magnolia
Distress Inks, MS Doily Punch
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon & Pearls from stash

Our challenge on Stamp Something is Love Somethings. I used one of the new Happy Mail stamps by Whiff of Joy. The sentiment is also from the collection.

Papers: Basic Grey 
Image: Charlie the Postman - Whiff of Joy
Pearls, buttons, scrappers floss
Tools used: cuttlebug, oval nesties

For both of my cards today I used distress inks to colour my images and to shade & edge my papers. Not long now until the new TH distress inks are out, I can't wait to see the new colours!!!

Other challenges I am entering this card into....
ABC Challenges - N for New (stamp is new)
Papertake Weekly - Love Actually
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Charisma Cardz - I love You

Thanks for visiting me today. Please do go check out the other DT ladies blogs for some more inspiration. 

I will be  updating my scrappy blog later today with a couple of layouts I've done over the course of the week. There are only a couple more people to go on my Scrap Whispers group and then I can reveal my layout for that :)

Have a wonderful Friday!!

This is such a beautiful card I loved it as soon as I first saw it and it has only got better the more I notice on it. The detail you have added with the distressing is just so perfect and as for the male card I really wish I could do mens cards that well I need a lot more practice :D

Hope you are having a good weekend
