I love you

Good morning everyone. Wow the weekend is here already and it is going to be so hot here in Melbourne. We are going to have 30 something degree celsius days for the next 3 days. Not good. Apparently on Monday they are warning people to keep an eye out for bushfires. Hoping they are just making us extra cautious.

I was lucky enough a while ago to win the random winner at Stamp with Fun and I was supposed to get a bottle of Glimmermist. Unfortunately it started leaking before it was even sent so Tina asked if I would like a Hanglar Stanglar stamp or stamped images. Of course, I said the stamp - not being able to get them here in Australia of course. I was lucky and Tina sent me the stamp and the stamped images. In fact I was gobsmacked when I opened the envelope to find so many in there. I never really thanked Tina for that - so big thanks Tina (I am sure you don't read my little blog but that is okay). So I thought I would start using some of the gorgeous images she sent me.
This card started out to be so different to the end result. I had so many ideas on what to do with it and they just didn't look right with this DP and images so this is the end result. Unfortunately I am not happy with it. I decided to do the inside too. Meh.....!!!!!
On a good note I thought I would show you the personalized stamp that I got from Kellie as a Christmas present for being DT for her store Magnolia Down Under. I am waiting on another one too. I think they add that personal touch on the back of your cards.
Enjoy your weekend.

You are a very lucky girl, that stamp is too cute, I love those little Hanglars, wish we could get them! your card is beautiful too, I love the way the red hearts really pop. Love the personalised stamp, I have been thinking about ordering one since Kellie got them in the store, but i cannot decide... I will probably want one and find out she has stopped selling them, lol. Oh well, you get that when procrastination is your middle name
