A Very Happy Engagement!!

Morning all,

Apologies for the late post today - I've been a bit naughty and had an extra long lay-in this morning as I was sooooo tired but hey, better late than never!  :o)  It was lovely too, lol!

Anyway, thank goodness it's Saturday wahoo!  Which can mean only one thing - another fabby sketch to play along with over on Sketch Saturday!!  I really liked this sketch.  Friends of ours got engaged over the festive period so I thought it would work perfectly for an engagement card for them, what do you think?...

Close up of Penny Black's 'Squeeze till I squeak' - sooooo cute!!

Inside of card - I don't own an Engagement Stamp, can you believe it!!  The hearts have been cut with my Cricut Create from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge...

Side view...

Here is this weeks Sketch... 

...and we're sponsored by the FABBY Simon Says Stamp who are offering a very generous $25.00 gift voucher for the lucky winner!!

So why not come and play along too.....hope to see you there!

Right I'm off now to have a lovely cooked brekkie - told you it was a long lay-in  ;o)
Have a fab day everyone,
Lots of love,
