Hey there everyone, Emma here....'s another tag hahaha!!!  But I really LOVE making them!!!  I have used up some more of my scraps, distressed, glittered and machine stitched the edges, the gorgeous lace and rose trim are from the market....

....this is my favourite image from this release...'Marvin with daisies', designed by Marina Neira, he is just so cute!!!  I have coloured him with grey lead pencil again.....WOW, I really am loving the black and white colouring!!! The other bits and bobs are all from my stash!!!

 Hi Susan here....
I love pink, it is my absolute favourite colour, so I couldn't resist making a pink valentine card. My ribbon, Lace and pearls are from our local market. I have used backing papers from HOTP Cardmakers Ultimate Pack. All the edges have been stitched to follow the theme of this weeks challenge at The Stamping Bazaar 'Stitching Faux or Real', please call across to the challenge blog and join in with us this week.

This is the last of the previews designed for you by Marina Neira and his name is 'Marvin with Daises', and I love him, you will be able to buy him from Saturday 22nd January 12am EST at The Stamping Bazaar Store. 
I have used Promarkers and chalks to colour the image.

My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the leaves I made myself.

The sentiment has been made on my computer the die is from Tickled Pink Stamps.

Thanks for looking....
