My Favourite Place is By Your Side

Happy Valentine's Day! It is the first time in 32 years together that I will have been apart from Colin on Valentine's although I am back with him tomorrow. This card is hidden away for him to discover! It is very simple, and uses one of the gorgeous new Alice Palice stamps by Crafty Individuals CI 373 - thank you Brenda for letting me stamp it up! Colin and I love ducks as we have them outside our place in France and they quack away constantly - I am about to phone him when I finish typing this and I know they will be joining in the conversation!

It is a very simple card. I cut a heart from stiff card and painted it with Fresco Finish paint then a layer of their crackle glaze and then another layer of paint, then stamped script CI 161 in white. I used Crafty Individuals' background paper and stamped the sentiment on another of their background papers and cut it out into individual words. I added some wooden hearts from Hobbycraft and just stamped the ducks on white cardstock.

The sentiment says it all ..........


  1. Die Karte ist so süß...
    Ich liebe diese herrlichen Enten.
    Sie sind so witzig.

    Liebe Grüße
