Morning Folks!! Rather unusual for me to be posting on a Sunday but I had to just share with you the first of my cards for the brand new SWALK release woohooo!!! The new set of stamps will be on sale from Saturday the 12th, airing live on Create and Craft tv at 11h00, 12h00 & 14h00. Crafters Companion will be launching six new stamp plates and boy are they cute as ever!! I will preview one a day for this week just to wet your appetite rofl! They will again be selling at £3.99 each or £19.99 for the set of six. I have tried a new style of card for this one which is a side easel card that I fell in luv with on the uber talented Marlene's blog. If you hop on over there to see her fabby card she has a link to the tutorial if you also wanna try it out.
Here is a close up of the sweet little love birds which I have coloured in with my Copics.

And a sideways view. All backing papers have been printed off from the previous SWALK cd's as this new release will only be the stamps and not another cd. I used my good ol faithfull doohickey dies again hehe, the tilda lace for the border and the doily flowers. The gems are from my stash and the tiny blooms are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I'll be entering my card into the following challenges :
Allsorts Challenge - It must be love, love, love
Bunny Zoes - Love is in the air
Creative Inspirations - Valentines / Love
Creative Craft - Hearts and flowers
Inky Impressions - Sketch
Polka Doodles - With hearts
Prairie Fairy Fridays - For a sweetheart
Sarah Hurley - Die Cuts
Simon Says - Love is in the air
Stampin' for the weekend - St Valentines Day

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed this preview and will come back tomorrow for more. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
