sweet sunday #56 {sprinkled with LOVE}

Happy Valentines Day Folks!!! Hope you've had a FABULOUS day, getting spoilt, serenaded (well ok perhaps not!!..hahha) and generally taken care of by your LOVED one.

I got very spoilt last night.. my GORGEOUS hubby cooked me dinner... somewhat of a Valentines Day tradition here in the Kale' abode. I must say too, for someone who doesn't do a lot of cooking and quite often says that he can't really cook.... to that I say Pfift!!!!... No really.... he doesn't just go for a simple Cheese on Toast option (one I would be completely content with I might add.. you know it's all about the fact that HE is cooking.. hahaha), oh NO, he's gone the whole kit and caboodle.. Garlic and Chilli Prawns, Crispy Skinned Salmon with Chilli Glaze, Olive Tapenade with Marinated Feta and Prawn Toast and THEN... yes there is MORE... THEN Lemon and Lime Brulee... MY FAVE and to completely DIE for... It was DELICIOUS!!! The best part... I didn't have to cook it, clean it up and there is plenty left over for today... EXCELLENT!!!

Now I'm sure you didn't pop on over to listen to me ramble on about my spoilings on VDay, rather to see what we've created for you for Karen's fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch... so I won't bore you any further and get right into it.

Here is my card for this weeks sketch:-

And here is the fun sketch from Karen for you to play along with:-

Given it is Valentines Day this weekend I thought I'd make a little "Coffee Date" Valentine's Card. I inked up my AWESOME Taylored Expressions Sprinkled with Love set... LOVE it!!!, and paper pieced the cups one in Red and one in Pink.. (that one's MINE!!) Added some Sprinkles and the rest pretty much speaks for itself. I was a little lost when I'd finished it all as to where to put my sentiment, contemplated even not putting one on it at all, and honestly, I'm still not 100% sure that I like what I've done with it... I'll keep looking at it, I'm sure I'll come around eventually.

Be sure to pop on over and visit the other Sweet Sunday Stampers for some AMAZING inspiraiton, they NEVER fail to inspire:-

And don't forget to link your card to Mr Linky over at Karen's blog so we can all see what you've created.
