WS - Valentine

This weeks theme over at WS is Valentine. Since in our house, this is a whole family celebration (ie our 2 children, plus hubby and myself), I had decided to make a canvas embracing the way we celebrate Valentine's Day. We have a special dinner and after that write a sentence about each person, saying what we love about that person. I make love hearts out of red cardstock, stamp each person's name on the front and on the back, we write our notes.

So here is my canvas, the stamping is on the houses (Collections) and the background is made with water soluble pastel crayons, along with the colouring in of the birdie.



I'm working on a frame for this canvas board and will post another piccy when it's in the frame.

thanks for looking :-)
