Create A Smile Stamps Challenge: L is for...

Hi Everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at Create A Smile Stamps. This time, the theme is "L is for...". I love how versatile the interpretation of this challenge can be! However, and call me sappy if you want to, I went for the most obvious one - LOVE. This means I will have a Valentine's Day Card made for hubby already - a win-win! ;o)

I slightly altered one of the seagulls in the uber-funny Gull Gang stamp set, so that it would be more feminine. I gave her lashes, and a string of pearls around her neck, even though I personally don't wear pearls... This way, however, it was easier for me to show that one of the seagulls is a male, and one is a female. These two are also meant to represent me and my hubby - me, the constant chatterbox, and my hubby - the man of fewer words, but of words that matter :o) 

Here's what I came up with:

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
SSS Monday Challenge - Alcohol - drinks or inks (I used alcohol markers, Copics, for colouring)
SSS Wednesday Challenge - Have a heart

I'm really happy with how it turned out, and I had lots of fun making it! Will you play along with us this time? 

Have a great day,
