Good Morning my crafty friends and Happy Valentine's Day!

I have for you today, the card that should have been up Tuesday for the Twist Of Faith Cards Challenge.  I apologise for the delay but I am behind due to the sudden decline and death of my kitty cat Isabella.  She was my sweet, sassy girl for over 17 years and though I suspected the day was not too far off, her passing Tuesday morning still caught me a bit off guard.

So here is what I've come up with.  I love the color combination of brown and pink and thought I would go that direction using this gorgeous Magnolia stamp called Gingerbread Tilda.  Though this is a Christmas image, I think she works out nicely in the roll of Valentine with her basket of hearts.
I have used a sketch by Tuesday Morning Sketches as a guide for my layout.  I dyed my ribbon and made my flowers to coordinate with my color palette.
At Twist Of Faith this week our challenge theme is LOVE and our sponsor Michelle Perkett Studio will give our winner their choice of this weeks featured images.  The image I am featuring for MPS is this lovely sentiment "A Friend Loves".
Please pop on over to the Twist Of Faith Blog to take a look at what my talented teamies have designed to inspire you.

Thank You So Much for stopping by today!  Don't forget that my Birthday/Blogaversary candy will be coming up in March and I have gathered up some fantastic stuff so far.  If you would like email updates, just hop on over to my sidebar and enter your email address.  HAVE A WONDERFUL VALENTINE'S DAY!
