the trees are not so bare now, buds are starting to appear
New growth is starting everywhere with gorgeous vibrant greens
Even Old Choc is sprouting out some new green growth
But two of the best things I love about February are two celebrations, my son's birthday on the 24th and of course Valentine's Day on Saturday. I am proud to admit that I am a soppy romantic and yes my Hb and I send and receive cards and token gifts and enjoy the day together. It is also 35 years ago on Saturday since we got engaged...wow where did that time go?
My card challenge for today is the Valentine Card I will be giving him on Saturday morning. together with some heart truffles.
I decided to try some stamping on hessian...a new thing for me and I rather liked the effect. I used the free stamp from the February Craft Stamper magazine.
The base of my focal used corrugated card, distress inks and stains, book pages for texture and the tiny hearts left over from my Feb TH tag

Happy Valentine's Day on Saturday everyone and can I send you a little love even if you can't or don't participate in the celebrations xox
Enjoy the upcoming weekend, we are seeing darling Daisy and her Mummy and Daddy on Sunday, she is growing so quickly and has even started using crayons and feeding herself with a spoon....and yes we are loving seeing her grow into such a sweet little person.
And finally a quote I love from George Herbert;
"A gentle heart is tied with an easy thread"
Go gently through the rest of February.
Bye for now,
