Be mine, Valentine?

Yep, Valentines is our new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'. Not a favourite theme of mine as I'm not a terribly romantic person!  I'm very practical and if OH sent me flowers for Valentines, I'd likely just think what a waste of money they were!  I might also be thinking that the money he's spent could have bought me that MFT smart phone die that I'm tempted by but (wo)manfully resisting!  Or on a VERY practical day, I could be thinking that it's 25% of a new Fridge freezer!  See, not romantic at all.

Anyhow, eventually I came up with this card using a cute kangaroo from SU and some gorgeous papers from Authentique.  I won't be sending it though!

Inspired by the following challenges:

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Crafty Girls Creations 13 - Anything Goes
Mojo Monday - Sketch

Thanks for dropping by, I plan on some blog hopping time later to check what you've been up to!

The Genius (Occasionally!) xx

What pretty colours Abi, the grey is so subtle and much softer than black.

Hope your weekend is a good one.

I can't say that kangaroos normally spring to mind when someone says "Valentine's Day" but this works beautifully. Love those papers too xx

This is really cute and very well laid out. I like that pieced kangaroo and those papers are gorgeous. Authentique is one of my fave papers.

Oh my I thought I was the only one who felt this way, lol! I'd rather have a new stamp set or die set or something that lasts a lot longer, lol. Love the super cute kangaroo and the way you've used grey instead of black it's perfection. I desperately need some new dies, especially some MFT flag or banner dies Karen x
