Inspiration From A Postage Stamp

Hi Guys,
Wow, where has the week gone? Time goes so fast when your stampin' up a storm lol!
Yesterday I was at my post office paying of some bills thinking to my self(more or less day dreaming lol)"Just think of all the great SU! things I could buy if I didn't have to pay bills lol"(SU! is always on my mind lol) when something caught my eye

This first day cover envelope form Australia Post(Aust Post release periodically first day covers and stamps to celebrate different occasions, in this case Valentine's Day), what caught my eye was the stamps, specially the second stamp

Here's a close up of the stamps

Then before for I realised 'A Happy Heart' popped into my head and I couldn't wait to get home, grab my stamp set and went on a Stamping frenzy lol!
and this was the card I ended up making taking inspiration from the pretty second stamp

I was so happy with this card and that's hard for me to say that I actually like one of my cards lol!

I'm going to give this card to my Mum to say 'I love you'(see might die with her legs in the air when I give her this, as I'm not a lovey dovey person roflol)
