Love Ya

This card is for all of you. All you wonderful people who visit my blog. We just passed 10,000 views the other day, all in less than a year!! So thank you for visiting, and I hope you will come back again. Make yourself at home, and don't be a stranger, feel free toleave a comment to let me know you passed by. I will try my best to repay the favour. Or just hang around, no need to talk if you don't want to. I'm happy to make you a cup of tea, or coffee. Maybe something chocolate-y to go with that?

This card was inspired by the current Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketch. I'm also entering over at Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge where the theme is Old and New as well as the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge where the theme is Something New. My old is the red card stock and the stamps, whereas the new is the black and white digi papers. I haven't used digi papers before, but I realised I don't have any black and white crafting papers, so I had to turn to the interwebs for them.

Stamps: Stampin' Up Just Sayin', Gorgeous Grunge
