Love is in the Air

There’s a new challenge starting over at Penny Black and More today, and I was delighted to be asked to be Guest Designer for this month's challenge.  The theme this month is 
Love Is In The Air
I've used "Gift Hedgy" from Penny Black, but adapted it slightly.  The stamp has the hedgehog carrying presents, but I choose not to stamp them out and instead make it look as though the little hedgehog was holding a heart shaped balloon. 

Image :  Gift Hedgy (Penny Black)
Medium : Copic Pens
Papers : Love Letters (First Edition)
Tools : Dies - Sofia Heart (Memory Box), Circle and Eyelet Circle (Spellbinders Nestibilities) Punch - Branch (Martha Stewart)
Embellishments : Ribbon, Rhinestones and Heart Shaped Pearl (My Craft Stash) and
Rose (Wild Orchid Crafts)

Good evening

Hope this post finds you well. 

Things are slowly returning to normal in our household following the Christmas festivities.  My husband and I were back to work yesterday, my son is back to school on Monday and the decorations are down and back in the loft.  One good thing is that at least I'll know what day it is!

Today's card features one of the images from the 'Furry Festive Friends' set by LOTV.   The backing paper was from my scrap box and unfortunately cannot remember the name. 

I've coloured the image with Copic markers.

The doily behind the images is a Cheery Lynn Die and the sentiment was made from "Spell It Out" by Whimsy Stamps.

I would like to entry the following challenges:

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Challenge 196 Doilies Galore
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Challenge 79 Furry Friends
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

That's it from my.  Have a good weekend and thank you for your lovely comments.
