A sneak peek ..... Maybe?

Ok ok ... I know there is something missing on my card LOL .... yes the stamps ... there is a reason for that which I will explain in a minute.

This Friday 4th January Hanna Stamps will be releasing a new stamp set ... this one is a Valentines Day set. I am sure you will love this set just like you have loved all the previous Hanna sets in the past. Besides having the Hanna image which btw will be suitable for any occasion not just Valentines, this set has a cute verse and some wonderful accessory stamps.

Unfortunately for some reason my stamps haven't made it across the seas to me as yet ... I am hoping they arrive soon ... but I didn't want to miss out on the sneak peek and as I had one idea for a card already I thought it would be fun to make the card and post it even without the images. When I finally receive my stamps I will stamp the lips (seen above) in the circle area of this card using rose red ink and the verse (also above) along the bottom of the card just above the paper piercing.

The layout of this card is the same as one I posted here on Saturday .... Shiver Me Timbers! .... you can find it here. I did mention then that I liked the layout and planned to use it again ..... didn't necessarily expect it to be this soon ... but I thought it would work nicely with this set.

When my stamps arrive I will be sure to post the finished card for you all to see :)

Stamps: Valentines Set - Hanna Stamps
Papers: Pretty in Pink & Rose Red - Stampin' Up; White
Other: Black Ink; Pretty in Pink & Rose Red SU Ink; Burgundy Grosgrain Ribbon; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Circle Nestabilities; Corner Rounder; Foam Tape

Ha're too stinking funny! What's sad is that your card is beautiful, even without the stamped images (must be a sign of talent).

Can't wait to see the finished masterpiece!
