Empty Box Project #5 - Valentine for a Child
My mum somehow acquired some pink deckle- edged cards, and for many years she used to leave one for each of us outside our bedroom doors on valentine's day. They had hearts drawn with biro and a question mark where the sender's name would be. It's a lovely memory.
This card is for my four-year-old grandson. The bubble background is a Creative Expressions stamp and the fishes and sentiment are from an old magazine freebie by Pink Petticoat - grabbed from my 'empty box project' box. I glittered up the red bits with Wink of Stella.
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.
