Love is.....

Hi everyone, I started this post this morning and only got as far as the photo. Changed my mind about it and took another one at lunchtime!

But before I tell you about it I need some help. I'm supposed to make a card for a WRI competition. We have to make 6 different items around a set theme. This year it is a masked ball and I have to make an invitation! One of the others has made a mask and I'd like to add something like that to the card. But I can't find an image. Brenda told me about a mask stamp stocked by The Stamp Man but unfortuanately it's a full face mask and Janet has made one of those ones that only cover the top half of your face and you hold it with a "stick." Stick doesn't sound right but maybe you know what I mean?! I don't mind if it's a stamp or a digi, I'm getting a bit desperate now as my drawing skills are not very good lol!

So here's yesterday's card.
I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment :- Penny Black "love" and "hugs", "is" handwritten.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Card Candy :- Craftwork Cards.
Martha Stewart punch, Nesties, Cuttlebug "hearts" folder and DP is an unknown scrap.

I'm going to enter the following challenges :-
Penny Black :- Love is...
Cards for Men :- Valentine/Love.
Secret Crafter :- Valentine.
Allsorts :- It must be love, love, love...
Simon Says Stamp :- Love is in the air.
Wild Orchid :- Love is..
I think that's it then. Hope you can find time to leave me a wee comment. I'm always encouraged by your kind comments, nice to know that someone has visited. And if anyone can help with the mask problem I'd be really grateful. At one point we thought of a fan and it would have been no problem to find a stamp as I have one of those 4 sided ones with 4 different fan images lol!

If you haven't noticed my candy yet you can find it in the post below.

Thanks for looking and take care.
