Love is in the air and new competition alert!

Well with Valentines day just round the corner and with my love of these new sweet pea stamps I am really in a happy mood at the moment. I am going to be putting a couple of cards in this one post so sorry for the length of it, here we go.

This first card I am entering into 3 challenges and one I have just found out about it is run by Teresa from Crafts and me (Where I have got the sweetpea stamps from) and she want you to email or mail her a valentines themed card the only thing you have to have done to enter is to have brought something from the shop (it doesn't have to be used on the card). The prise is a huge £20 voucher to spend in store! Just thing how many new sweetpea stamps you could get with that!!
It is also for Papertake Weekly and I have used their brilliant sketch for the layout.
Last but by no means least this also qualifies for Crafty cardmakers as they want to see hearts and romance. I have used a a backing paper that is covered in hearts from papermania and little pearly hearts as well as the hearts on the image.
As normal I have coloured this beauty with my promakres and sakura stardust pens to give her a touch of sparkle.



This second card is for 2 challenges they are A spoon full of Sugar who just wants you to show your style as they are having a free style week, and Sophisticat and they would like to see a card with a miss you, mum or tribute card in memory of Lisa's mum. I have gone for the miss you theme. The image is another Sweet pea design and I have again coloured her with promarkers and sakura stardust pens. The paper is from crafters companion.
