The gentleman caller


     I'm so excited to be guest designing at The Outlaws again!  This time I get to work with the Design Team for the Greeting Card Challenge which includes Angela, Ann, anaRy, Chana, and Tina.  Every Monday there's a new challenge and another chance to win some amazing monthly prizes from some great sponsors like Oozak and The Paper Temptress.
     This week's challenge is "Anything Goes".  How simple is that!  You can make whatever you want just as long as it has a sentiment on the front.  I've used this gorgeous Mo's Digital Pencil image I've been saving on the back burner.  This is another one of those stamps I didn't want to just throw on any old card.  It was going to have to be special.  Since this is my hubby's Valentine card I'd say that's pretty special.  :-)  It's a very simple design, but I think the papers are just perfect for the vintage feel of the image.
     Hope you'll join in the fun at The Outlawz.  You won't find a more friendly and supportive bunch of ladies to craft with.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Boots--Valentines
Cupcake Craft Challenge--pink and red
Ooh-la-la Challenge--be my Valentine
Stamps R Us--Valentine's/Love
Addicted to Stamps--Valentines/Love
