Be my Valentine

Hello my dears,  I hope you are all having a great start to your new week.   I must say I've been dreading this week for a while now!!! well the last 11 months or so.  This is the last day I will be in my 50's - oh my goodness!!!! where have the years gone.

It's my Birthday tomorrow!!  I'll be "GULP" 60 years young, it's not so much the number it's what it means, I will officially become a Senior Citizen - can collect my free bus pass and state pension!!!! Nooooooooooooooo!! I don't want them. Well the money will be nice, let's me buy some more crafty goodies. lol

Anyhow I digress, I wanted to show you all this fabulous image from Saturated Canary.  Her name is Gothica and you can find her over at Krista's Etsy store here, what a fab image for a teenage valentine's card.  I used pro & flex markers to colour her, a full recipe for my card is below this post.
