another Saturday and another inspiring IC! Can't help but love the leisurely pace of a weekend and this challenge, right??? Thanks Judy for the Better Photo site and heads up on the overwhelm factor...one click and I knew I'd be lost for days! So I chose that pink clapboard house with the ivy growing up the side....
I took Tim Holtz's bricked embossing folder and a Basic Grey pinky paper rubbing it with di Spun Sugar ink also. The window is a Rubber Stamps of America that I VersaMarked onto white cs and embossed with cream. I used a tiny polka dot black paper for inside. Finding the right green accents for that trailing ivy took some time, but as I was standing in among my stamps, my eye spied that froggie charming and off my imagination hopped.
The charming is a GREEN dynamo labeler that is reading black in my photograph. The handsome prince...frog, I mean is an Inkadinkadoo Amy Symth stamp.
With the day of love so close at hand, I am happy to once again add another year of bliss with my handsome prince...it will be 25 years. Yep, I married a true romance man and he's still the one.
Happy Weekend all.

Susan, don't know you intent, but it looks like your frog prince is waiting for his Juliette to appear at the window. I guess in this case, your DH is waiting for you to appear! : ) Your card made me smile.

Oh, I loved that house and even more I like your take on it.
The house reminded me of the architect husband of a friend - they were living in London at the time and Graeme had an empty picture frame on his wall with a potted ivy growing up and twined round the frame. The polka-dot paper makes a great starry sky effect for me - but again, I think that's from a childhood book :D. You're certainly bringing a lot of memories to the fore for me today.

How lovely to find the right frog...er....prince, who is still the one. Congratulations to you both. I love your card, and must add MY prince is turning 70 on VALENTINE'S Day! (we've been married 48 years, and he's STILL the one for me!)
