Valentines & spring are singing to me . . .

Oh-kay, I've been elbow deep in paints and papers and inky stuff, thinking about Valentine's Day and dreaming of spring:
collage image from Altered Pages
For the Altered Arts Magazine blog, a mixed media collage--I am SO enjoying my new stamps from Something Tattered:  the one here is a partial of the Boudoir Antique Brocade Wallpaper.  C'mon, even the NAME is awesome--Boudoir Antique Brocade.  Does it get any better than that??

And a card--yes, I really did make a card--for the Altered Pages Artsociates blog, here is just a corner, showing another one of my favorite new stamps, that bird's nest:

oooh, you can see the metallic crayon, too!  :)
(More details and photos are, of course, on the aforementioned blogs.)

Thank you for stopping by today;  I always appreciate your visits.  Have a wonderful weekend!
Some challenges for some weekend inspiration?  I'm joining my first piece in with:
