A bit of old fashioned romance.

Whahoo it's Friday!  Thank goodness the weekend is here and, at the time of writing, even though it is absolutely freezing, the sun is shining so hopefully we have the promise of a good weekend ahead.

Meanwhile we launch in to February on Sunday, so it is the time of year when all things romantic are on our minds.

So on to my card today, using the lovely Rosebud characters from Polkadoodles. They are quite different to her usual style, but very 'Jane Eyre' to my mind and I think they make really nice cards for anniversaries etc - especially for older couples who might have gone beyond the super cutie stuff!

As you can see, I opted for an easel card and used an opening door scene which I learned from the lovely Jayne Nestorenko. One of her Cute Companions CDs has a number of scenes with opening doors, so I adapted that technique, using bits and pieces from the Rosebud CD to create the same result.

The two images have been lovingly coloured with my pro markers and decoupaged on to the scene.

It looks like the young man is just about to propose don't you think? He is certainly a bit flushed in the cheeks!

There are some lovely challenges to enter in to this week, so here comes my list:

Thanks for visiting today and a happy weekend to you all.
