We would love to see you use at least one heart on your submission this week. Oh what an excuse to finally ink up the one of the hAnglar stamps I won from Jak's blog candy a while back. I had missed this set on Ebay and was so thrilled to win them :D 

My papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet, and I'm just down to the last of them.. how sad :( They are truly such romantic papers. 

The ticket is from Making Memories and I've had to cut off the bottom half to make it smaller.
