Happy Valentines

Happy Valentines Day xx

Hope you are all having a wonderful day.  We are in the midst of a deep freeze this weekend, with windchill temperatures reaching as low as -44c (-47.2f)  brrrrr!  We have been colder than the North Pole LOL!

Anyways, to warm your heart I have the Valentines card that I made for Andy, to share with you today.

I have used an oldie but a goody collection from Polkadoodles called All Around and Everywhere.  It always surprises me when you go back and look at older collections, how much you forget is there!

All the papers are from the collection and I have inked all the layers.

For the inside I used the same papers, and then also added two little Spellbinders Scalloped hearts.

Lori of Chouxchoux Paper Art did a lovely tutorial on how to do the rosette heart and I couldn't resist making one and topping it with another small scallop heart to finish it off and inked the edges too. You can find Lori's tutorial HERE and have a look around her amazing blog too whilst your there!

The sentiment is stamped using the only Valentines stamp I have, but I do love that elegant font.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Crafting by Designs - Challenge: Hearts (closes 16 Feb)

Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Challenge #123: Anything Goes with twist - So in Love (closes 15 Feb)

Crafty Calender Challenge - February: Love is in the Air (closes 28 Feb)

Happy crafting and Happy Valentines Day.
