Happy Valentines Day - my first Sugar Nellie love...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and happy and Happy Valentines Day to you all, did you all see my cake last night?...were you impressed?...I'm so impressed with myself and it made me want to more different kinds so watch this space...oh and did you all join in my new candy yet, if not the links on the sidebar at the top, have a go as they are so lush...I had a super lazy day yesterday and did absolutely nothing, well I did eat another cake lol...but besides from that all I did was watch chat shows all afternoon and didn't even get dressed out of my jim jams...oh well I guess a lazy day now and then does you good doesn't it...my card for today is using the stamp that made me fall in love with Sugar Nellie stamps, I love this beautiful stamp, that face is amazing and its a dream to colour...its by Kathy Hare Designs for Sugar Nellie and is called Worried, I think it shows a lot of love don't you...I coloured him in monochrome with distress inks and teamed him up with these super stunning Prima Printery 6x6 paper pad papers, love this pad, its so aged and distressed and perfect for monochrome or to add a splash of colour too...the beautiful sentiment is stamped softly to give it an aged look and is from my stash, I finished with some fab recycled ribbon from Christmas packaging and a beautiful bird charm that was part of a gift from a fellow crafter...the sketch is lush but I cant remember where its from but I'm entering this for the Simon says stamp challenge, My Mums Craft shop challenge and Simon says Stamp and show challenge too...We don't celebrate Valentines Day for no other reason than we are hardly ever together on it and try to show each other every day we love each other not just on one day (aaaawwwww ok now don't all get slushy lol)...I really must do some crafting today so no cake eating or chat show watching I promise...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Love your card. That adorable image reminds me of my oldest son. He had a 3' tall (BLUE) stuff orangutan, ugly thing but he loved it and he'd cuddle up to 'Blue' whenever he was sad.
