Sugar bowl challenge 77

Doesn't this challenge come around quickly?
Today's sketch over on the Sugar Bowl is from the lovely Kiki with the theme "LOVE".
Now I don't normally do mushy love cards, I'm more of a "say it how it is card" be it rude or cheeky, especially for this time of year but in true challenge style I decided to have a go and got out the heart paper!

Now I know this wee cutie has a Christmas style hat but it's cold and wintery up here in Scotland and with cute hearts on her hat and that lovely knitted heart I thought why not use for Valentine's day too.

This paper also takes me back to my childhood....confession time....I used to have red love heart paper!!  I know....ME!  Maybe that is why I don't do hearts, LOL.  Now that you've picked yourself off the floor I have used;

Paper by Teresa Collins "Crush", Kraft, white and red card, Knitted with love SN stamp, Hero arts carta stamp sentiment, prisma pencils, glossy accents with ribbon and charm from stash.

And Kiki's fab sketch;

Up for grabs for the random winner of the challenge is your choice of 4 fabulous Sugar Nellie stamps which will rise to 6 if we get over 100 entries.
It only remains for me to say one thing;

"You've got to be in it to win it, enjoy and happy crafting!"
