Valentine/Love

Good morning bloggers, well I blinked and that was the weekend over! These Mondays do come round with some speed don't they?  Today we have a brand new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme is Valentine/Love just perfect for this time of year.

I have gone for something that I always love when I see other bloggers doing it but I have only ever done one before so this is my second time.  I have taken a lot of inspiration from Alison's blog The Great Leveller as she does these so beautifully.


The sentiment is by Lexi and you can purchase it at Fairydust Crafts here.  I printed it onto white linen card and then cut it out with a Nellie Snellen heart die.  I added a pearl string around the edge.  The butterfly, flower on the right, lattice and border are all  Cheery Lynn dies.  The other two flowers are Spellbinders.  The lace, brad and pearls are all from my stash.  You can't really see it in the picture but the card behind the lattice is so pretty its a white brocade pearlised card.  My husband kindly pointed out that the sentiment is wonky oh well he better get used to it because I think I will probably give him this card!!

Our sponsor this week is:


none other than the fab Joanna Sheen and they will be giving the lucky winner a £10 gift certificate to their store.  Please pop over to our challenge at Lexi's Creations and see what the rest of the team have done, you have two weeks to enter our challenge.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge - Hearts and Flowers
Dream Valley - Valentines
Glitter n Sparkle - Valentines/Love
