A Valentine's Engagement

Well hellloooo February, where did you come from? Does anyone else think January has gone by in a flash? On a positive note the evenings are getting lighter which means that Spring is just around the corner...hoorah!

I've got a little engagement card to share with you today (well actually a large one coz it's 8" x 8") it's for a couple that are getting engaged on Valentine's Day and I have to say I really enjoyed making this card and it's not very often I say that! I treated myself to some new Promarker colours this week and I can only say I'd wish I'd done it sooner...I didn't realise just how many colours I was missing and maybe, just maybe, colouring is becoming interesting again!
