Kind of a Valentine

Besotted With Our Pets
Animal Stamps Inky

Not having much crafting time this month and the fact that we are going to be away quite soon has meant I’m not doing Valentines cards this year. That said I received my new Bestie stamp set from SSS and another critter set from Divinity Designs that included this Triple step die along with a paper pack and this card was born.

In a few moments I have the sad task of creating Sympathy cards as my uncle passed away 2 days ago and just a few moments ago we learned that a well loved member from hubby’s photo group succumbed to his very serious illness as of yesterday night. It has left us a bit shell shocked if I’m honest so I’m trying to cheer myself up by posting this card.

When doing this card late yesterday afternoon, I first cut the step card base and then used pp from the Divinity designs stack and cut the add on’s. I like this pp because it isn’t too busy and adds to, rather than dominating the rest. The rest are all from SSS and I find these are really cute and fun images. All were coloured with my inktense pencils used very lightly to get the more pastel shades and I added the red hearts after colouring with a red glitter pen.

  1. Such a spirit lifting scene. Hope you can find peace in your heart and enjoy fond memories. That step card die may soon just live on your work space because you are using to so often. Kind of like those new colored pencils.

  2. Thanks Bonnie. I really like the new pencils and am going to get more of them. They are very different to the Prisma ones and I like the control I get with a pencil but the brightness of the colour after they are washed with a bit of water.


  3. Thanks Lisa – you should pull them out as you do beautiful colouring and you may love the results with these even more. Thanks also for the sympathy.


    1. Thanks Gayle – I was a bit down yesterday but feel more composed today. I am concerned for the wife of the club member who died as i suspect she will crash and burn soon.


  4. Thanks Golda, things are better but there is a lingering sense of sadness as there always is when people pass away.
