It is not in the stars to hold our destiny . . .

click photo to enlarge

Isn't she lovely? What a romantic image! (Not the "kissy
kissy, oooh I love you," kind of romantic, but the idealized
type of romance, know what I mean?) She is part of the
Cosmos Collage stamp from Lost Coast Designs, available
at Blockheads.

I found her charming, and wanted the focus to be on her,
so there is only some very light tinting with pale copics,
and a bit of Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

Challenge? Yes, please:
The Cheerful Stamp Pad--romance is in the air
Cupcake Craft Challenge--recycle (college notes, sheet music)
Pollycraft Monday--favourite (altered books, ephemera)
Crafting When We Can--use something not intended for crafting (ephemera)
Just For Fun--Medieval

Well, for whatever reason, blogger is NOT playing nicely AT ALL,
and I can't link anything properly. I try to add a link, but it
ends up attaching itself to another link, which ends up a big, broken,
not-linked mess. Anyone else having this problem? I CAN, however,
look at something and type what I see, so even though I have no idea
what all the little things do, I feel very accomplished today for
putting in links by myself!!!
