Challenge 62 - Love/ Valentine

Hi everyone, we're back with our new challenge for the next fortnight .  Thank you for all your wonderful entries for the last challenge, it was lovely to see your favourite things used in your creations!! 

Before I go any further though, I have some very sad news - two of our gorgeous girlies are leaving us, Fleur and Liz!  We're so sorry to see you go ladies,  and we're going to miss your awesome  makes each fortnight.  Thank you both for all your work and inspiration that you've given during your time here!  Hope you'll still pop by and play along with us!
Now on to our new challenge and, as it's the beginning of February, of course we have a theme of

Now, it doesn't need to be an obvious valentine card, although we'd love to see those, but it can be a declaration of love for someone, or celebrating love like an engagement card, as long as we can see, and feel the love!!  The only thing you have to remember is that you have to use a BasicGrey product somewhere in your creation and please let us know which BasicGrey product you used in your blog post because sometimes it isn't very obvious!

As always, our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!
