My heart is yours...

Eee! Season 3 of Downton is off to such a great start! I honestly didn't want the hour to end. What with the wedding, the continuing murder mystery, health scares, money troubles and crazy American relatives... it doesn't get much better than that.  ;)

It's been quite a while since I've inked up any Kraftin' Kimmie stamps so today's card seemed like a good chance to rectify that situation. I've been waiting for the perfect excuse to use Aphrodite on a Valentine's card as it seems a holiday particularly suited to her. And while the Basic Grey papers are a Valentine's line I really liked the nontraditional shots of yellow added to the pink and brown combo as it helps to make this goddess of love pop off the card. I even broke out the heat gun and embossing powder to add a golden frame around the edge... techniques like that always make me feel particularly crafty.

Alrighty then, time to start off this brand new week. Have a good one my friends!

I SO look forward to your beautiful coloring, Amy! Your design skills are AMAZING. :) I also am a HUGE Downton Abbey fan! I got the DVDs for the first 2 seasons for Christmas-LOVE. My only disappointment with the season premiere last night-they really skipped over Matthew & Mary's wedding and honeymoon. Otherwise, it was FABULOUS. :)
