Sending my Love Play Date-Style... seems so CrAzY to be putting away the
holiday-themed stamps for now, but I guess it's time!
The color story over at
is just the ticket to get me going in the right direction.

Nothing like this fabulous color story to get me
in the mood for a little Valentine greeting.
I love this shade of 'taupe' with just about
any color combo and I really did enjoy
working on this card.

I recently received a lovely gift package from
Sarah and if there is one thing I LoVe about
paper crafting things from the UK, it's the beautiful
array of decorative papers...and this is one of them.
It was the perfect shade for this challenge.
I then added the beautiful gemstone hearts to the
top.  To give it added dimension, I left it on the
acetate backing sheet, so it really pops off the page.
They're from KandCompany and get this....
I paid a whopping $1 for the package!

I love silk ribbon and thought it was the
finishing touch.
The sentiment is from 
Ippity's 'How You Doin' set,
which of course, is available for purchase
from me on my Ippity page here.

I hope you will have a few minutes to play
along with us this week at
