Valentine Mail

Morning.  As I turned the calendar to February, it made me think of hearts and Valentine's Day.  I remembered seeing this cute design somewhere in blogland so grabbed the newly released Penny Black set called POSTED WITH LOVE.
Such a cute and fun set to play with.

I began by cutting my paper on the angle then stamped my images.  I mounted that onto a piece of red DP with pop dots.  I stamped the little red heart on the same DP and pop dot mounted it over the 'Air Mail' stamped image.

I am also adding my card to these challenges:


Addicted to CAS- HUGS and KISSES


Simply Create Too- VALENTINE'S DAY

Addicted to Stamps- CAS

 Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look. 

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Bl. Memento ink/ pop dots/ DP
