The romantic in me today.....

Its only a few weeks until valentines day, we don't 'do' it here like they do in America but we do seem to pay lip service to it. I know there are some of you out there who are very romantic and buy into the red roses and the rest, I would love my other half to buy into it for me but he doesn't so I don't!

Anyway enough about me. Our Creative Den craft studio where I spend all my days is on a business park in an old converted mill. Our unit was originally part of the weaving shed. Around us there is still quite a bit of work going on as well as the ongoing work on the flood defences. There are a lot of men in big boots, overalls and wooly hats around so we had to didn't we. Elaine and I have spent the day making Valentines cards. To top the day off a certain young man who late last year ordered a handmade anniversary card came in and asked about valentine cards. Today I am going to share 3. None of these is made with the new goodies in the spring summer catalogue as we had so much left from last year we haven't invested this year although I do like the papers.


This paper is from the neutrals pack onto real red card. The branch is die cut from best birds and the bird punch. The hearts are covered in glossy accents. The inside uses


For this one we have used the Bloomin Heart thin lets dies. The little flowers have been cut from red Stampin'Up red glimmer paper the whole card finished with a length of velvet ribbon. (That probably came from a box of chocolates!)


Finally a selection of retired papers punched with the sweetheart punch, daubed with crumb cake ink curled then added with dimensionals. The sentiments are cut from a vellum sheet which was in my stash.

They all have a suitable sentiment inside, we made another seven, all very different just using up stash. Lets hope they all sell and we have to make more!

Available in my online shop
