After checking out sketch from http://www.stamping411.blogspot.com and wanting to come up with a layout for a Technique Class this Wenesday – Faux Tiles, I thought that maybe I could combine the 2…..  This is the result! 
Mind you, I wanted a male card, but looking at it, could be either male or female.

Short n Sweet…

I’ve come across a card which I did for Valentine’s Day some time ago, but I am sure that it has never been posted.
This Stamp Set is  very versatile & able to be used for such a variety of occasions.
As I always keep a sketch or photo of cards, projects, etc, I’ve been able to reuse an old layout for this card.  Always handy for when you are stuck for ideas… 
Supplies Used –
Stamp Set – Priceless, Wonderful Words – Retired
Ink – Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock – Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Punches – 1 3/4″ Circle, Scallop Circle
Accessories – Snail Adhesive
Non-SU – Ribbon
Crikey, I’ve managed to use another retired stamp set – Warm Words.  Again, it has missed being marked as “Retired“, but have now been amended & filed in the Retired Dump!  Think I will be going through my stamp sets tmw/today & checking if there are any more to be marked “Retired”.
Until tmw, have a great night & happy stampin’
