Sentimental Sundays DT Post: Lovey Dovey!!!

Hellooooo!!!!! I hope you are having a good Sunday!

It seems that we are going to get a bit of snow here in the Highlands! at least that is what the weather man keeps on saying.... happy as Alaia keeps on talking about building snowmen and I really want her to use her brand new snow boots!!! but not so happy as my husband has a meeting tomorrow and has to drive 175 miles this evening and back home tomorrow evening.... I get really worried, the road is very narrow and I want him safe at home when the weather is like this...

So, as every Sunday, it time for a new challenge at Sentimental Sundays!!!

The theme for challenge #191 this week is:

Lovey Dovey
(plus a sentiment)

This means, you can make a card for any loved one... nearing Valentine's day, so easy peasy!
but don't worry if you are not in the mood for Valentine's cards yet, it could be a card for anybody you love (child, baby... etc)

So, hope over to Sentimental Sundays, and join us in the fun! My fellow DT have also made some fabulous creations to inspire you!!!

Our sponsor this week is Sami Stamps

For my card I used this beautiful and romantic Sami Stamps image called "Winter Romance".

The card is a bit simpler than what I'm used to... I just thought that it could be directed to a male or a female... . 

I just used some red and white cardstock as a background. I die-cut an oval, fussy cut the image and placed it over a snowflakes paper (this came free with a magazine).
I hand-stitched with grey thread around the card.

The Promakers I used to colour the image are:

For him: Raw Sienna, Sandstone, Cool Grey 5,4,3 and 1; China blue, cornflower, powder blue, Poppy and blender pen.

For her: Sandstone, buttermilk, Poppy, Cool Grey 5,4,3 and 1, blender pen.

The "Love is" stamp is a bargain I found a while ago, it's a rubber stamp from Anita's. It's a bit grunge looking, but hopefully works fine on this card!

Then I die-cut the two hearts with a Sissix Bigz die, embossed them with a floral pattern and a swiss dots pattern, and added two small rose buds.

I inked all round the heart shapes and card stock with Tim Holtz distress ink in Tattered Rose.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

I hope you like my card today! A bit different for me...
