Monday's here again,

How quickly time seems to be going... I have enjoyed a lovely crafty afternoon. I have made a start on Hubby's valentines card using Neat & Tangled stamps. I have waited 6 months to use these for him and they have been hidden away. He is a massive Star Wars fan so these seemed appropriate., well they did to me anyway.

The words inside will read "we fell in love" say the outside and inside all together and I think that's quite sweet.

Then I made him a little treat bag with little chocolates inside using some clearly besotted stamps. They were free on simply cards & paper craft and they are fab.

Other news my friend loved the save the dates. I will show you a photo of the prototype.......

They looked lovely when they were finished but I can't show them as I didn't take a photo of the finished ones before I gave them out - doh what an idiot !!
That's it from me today hope you haven't fallen asleep from boredom !! Have a nice evening, thanks for dropping by and please remember 75 followers means a big giveaway !!
Take care xxx
