Sisterly London Valentine


This year I've created more Valentine cards than Christmas cards...guess I'm making up for non-stamping half a year. ;)


My London Valentine card is for my youngest sister~she visited while we were stationed in Germany over 10 years ago.


My hubby had been in Iraq for a year by then... there aren't enough words for what her presence meant to me.

We were blessed to travel to nearby cities...but one of my favorites was London.


That trip will always hold a special place in my heart.





I inked this sentiment stamp for the first time.  It's from Holiday Photo Finishers.


 (use a stamp collection that hasn't seen ink or hasn't been used enough)


I'm also entering this in the challenges
