Love letter

Hi! hope you all had a good weekend, it was so sunny and cold here - loved it :D  More lurve cards for you today and why such a roll on the mushy cards Emma I hear you cry (not because I have lots of lovers btw lol!).    It's because my craft fair season is starting a little earlier this year at a new venue, the Revue studios on Wind Street (next to Varsity) in Swansea this Saturday between 10 - 4 pm.  There are over 25 stalls with stonework, collage,  woodwork and taster holistic sessions.  So thought I'd better cater for all you love birds out there on Valentines day :D

Have a great day all & see you soon will design team projects for the fabulous In Love With Stamping site.

Set adrift on memory bliss

Morning! and welcome to my Monday card using a new found and might I say delicious colour combination of Stampin' Up!s delightful daffodil, sahara sand and perfect plum.  Also using my much beloved SU! buttons that of course completely co-ordinate.  With a splash of crystal effects on my butterfly (honest, although hard to see in the pic) for a fresh look.

Have a great day & see you soon x
