One post, two cards....


Hope you are all well!

I've got to make this post a quick one so forgive me if I skip the small talk and some of the details.... If there's anything you want to know, please ask!

I love this image from LOTV - it's called  Big Present. I followed a sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

Close up:

Sentiment from Sentiments 4 You:

Crafty Ribbons - One for the men/boys

My second card uses a poor neglected stamp of mine: Luvvie from Sugar Nellie. The sentiment is Sentiments 4 You again!

I'm not quite happy with this one though.... The colours bled when I coloured and Charlie "helped" me with the 3D gloss.... :-(

I do like the rolled rose though - I used a fabric swatch my sister gave me from where she works. Love it!

CRAFT - Valentines Day
Cards for men - seeing red
Creative inspirations - lots of love
Fab n funky - love is in the air
Paperplay - love letters
Simon says stamp - love is in the air

 Right, I'm off to make a nice warm lunch!  Have a fab day :-)

Love 'n' hugs,

Sorry I have been such a rubbish blogger lately hun, I've been floating around spaced out on my new painkillers & falling asleep at the drop of a hat.
