Hello Love!

I don't do Valentines.    He doesn't do Valentines.    We have never done Valentines.
That's because it is Dear Husbands birthday - (we don't do Birthday cards either which is surprising considering how much I like making them!) - and because everywhere is full of lovey doveyness on 14th we normally end up having a birthday meal at another time!
I have though made a card which is a CASE of a CASE that I did a couple of years ago.
It is not for Valentines specifically and I think it could also be used for Christmas or anything else so have CASE'd it again!
The image is from A Day for Daisies.
I don't use digis a lot (although I have loads of them) as I always end up not getting the placement right/ printing them out too small/too big/ not waiting long enough for them to dry before trying to colour etc etc etc. List is endless!
And I DO prefer to actually hold a stamp (or put it in the MISTI) but I think I need to try more digis as there are so many really nice ones out there!

A simple card and the colouring is not the best as I have seen this image with proper shading on her dress and it looked amazing - sadly I am not that good with the Promarkers!

I glittered her wings and halo and added a few sparklies.
The sentiment is by SU.

Lots of love themes around so am sharing over at
Cute n Crafty - Love
Use Your Stuff - Hearts
Dream Valley - Love
CUYL - Love

So kitchen slowly taking shape - no water connected yet - hopefully that will be in the next 24 hours - then at least I can get some washing done. I confess I am fed up with the white dust that pervades everywhere in the house - made worse by the bare concrete floor.
We are likely to be almost there apart from the floor by the end of the weekend - so at least I will be able to start putting some of the stuff that currently is living on all the bedroom floors back!
Will be round to visit you all a bit later! x

It's really cute. I think any little girl would like it as well as any big girl.

So adorable Viv! And perfect for Christmas as well. I feel for you with the kitchen re-furb, but it will be lovely when finished!

It is a really sweet card Viv, we don't do Valentines either.
I imagine you cannot wait to get your kitchen finished, it sounds like good progress is being made.

Beautiful CAS card and love the sprkle-we don't do Valentine or birthday cards either-I have made them for special birthdays though-I have stacks of digis but getting more into using my stamps which was my first love and I have many unused and neglected ones--hope you are soon sorted with the kitchen

This is a really sweet and pretty image Viv, and the glittery wings and halo, and the added little sparkly gems are perfect. I'm with you about digital images. There are lots of them out there and I often see one I like, but I do really love a proper stamp. Glad your kitchen revamp is on the home straight now, and you will be glad to get back to normal I'm sure. x
