Happy V-Day everyone

I hope everyone's having a good lurrrrrrve day :)

I've woken in a strop because the curse of Friday 13th cost my Canucks a win in Dallas, but hopefully it will get better as the day goes on, eh?

Here's my card for Ian.....I went for something a little non trad because I'm not really the slushy lovey dovey type, so wanted something a bit different from the usual hearts and flowers. Bah humbug :)

Alison came up with the line "my Valentine makes me smile" (ta bessie! good one) and this is what I came up with

Andy Warhol eat your heart out :D

Am actually quite pleased with this one as it is the first three part stencil I've ever cut, and I really like the look - especially the way everything doesn't quite line up properly so it leaves the odd white bit reminiscent of 1960s litho prints.

I will definitely be cutting more 3-parters.

Here's the original image from google that I based the stencil on:

This looks fabulous and I agree about the 60s litho look of the odd tiny white bit - great look!
