Love is in the air

I have been commissioned by the American company http://www.craftysecrets.com to do some design work for them, so all week I have been busy with my PSE and mouse designing papers for them. I love doing that but have also missed doing some "real" crafting. So, it was great this afternoon to get papers and stamps out and get my fingers dirty. Here's the result, a pop-up card. I'm sorry the photos are so bad because it's a really dark day here

It's inspired by an article by Helen Chilton in the March issue of Craft Stamper.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
