Be mine...

Hola!

Man, oh man the wind has been a-blowin' like crazy here, even rattling the doors and windows every now and then. Which has been great for melting the snow but I'm in constant fear of it knocking out the power... I'd hate to lose the heat and my internet connection LOL! ;)
So far so good though so I'll get this posted quickly just in case...

A few days ago when I was flipping through my Valentine stamps looking for a sentiment I came across this crazy little Valentine Animals clear stamp set from Inkadinkado that I got on sale sometime last year but never used. These cute birdies totally caught my eye and I knew I would have to ink them up sometime soon. I love how sweet they look and then they are paired with that tongue-in-cheek sentiment that just cracks me up.. too fun! I finished off the scene with some Paper Trey Ink Out on a Limb stamps and the sky was created by sponging Distress ink over a cloud shaped masking border that I cut out for this. Because I put most of my time into creating the scene I left the rest of the card pretty clean and simple and I think it works.

Ok, time for work. Have a good one my friends!
