Trampled Beneath Her Feet

Hello.  Welcome.  I was just reflecting on how January seemed to slip away like a speeding wotnot.  The older I get the faster time seems to pass.  I don't feel older.  Maybe I'm just losing my grip.  No wonder older people get confused.  How can you know where you are when the days go by so fast you loose track of what year it is!  Hjelp......

Blogland is full of love.  Well, OK, it's always full of love and we are many times grateful for that, but I mean the challenges.  Lots of loverly hearts challenges.  Here's a little ATC valentine from a non-traditional outlook.....

I embossed my ATC with DoCrafts Lovers Lane folder, coloured with PaperArtsy Limelight FF paint and highlighted the hearts with DI Mowed Lawn.  I cut two hearts, different sizes from red glitter paper and edged them with VersaMagic Night Sky Chalk.  The lovely lady is a stamp from The Greeting Farm Spooktacular set that I have paper pieced.  Her hair is black glitter paper and I used a white paint marker for the white streaks.   What a heart breaker she is.  If you think she looks a little green that is intentional so please do not adjust your set.  The spooktacular comes with the stamp set and the other words were computer generated.
