ooodles of love

I seem to be going a bit decoupage crazy lately
but I am adamant I will use up some of my stash before buying more things
so this FF decoupage is ideal for valentines
just love those tumblin' hearts
I have layered mirri card onto a white A5 card, then used a background from JS ATC assistant CD to use as a frame, then added lots of bling to the frame, and then some silver card candy to the corners

This is for the challenges at
allsorts challenge - love love love
the secret crafter - valentines
the crafty pad - love is in the air
craft your passion - bling on your love
papertake weekly - have a heart
ccc -  for a a loved one
creative craft challenges - love is in the air
polka doodles - with hearts

and hopefully thats all the valentines cards I am going to be doing!!! I am a tad fed up with them now actually!!

thanks for looking

out of my comfort zone"!!!!

at the stampin up workshop we made this card
really not my type of thing
firstly the colours arent something I would put together and secondly MORE THAN 1 STAMP TO A CARD!!!
in fact there are 4 as the sentiment is also stamped!
the main image is heat embossed too, the yellow part is the embossed area, is actually much nicer in the flesh I have to say, but all in all I do like it!

I want to use this for the
more than one image challenge at Paper Sundaes
crafty creations 3 little words challenge

at crafty bunch last week we left home with some bits and pieces, and I wasnt too sure what to do with this paper, didnt want to cut into it to be honest but I did, but what more can you do with it really, just used it as the card, with some ribbon and my beloved card candy! then a sentiment! thats it easy peasy, gosh I am becomming a lazy crafter!
so will use this for the moving along with the times red challenge
CES challenge red and romance - even though I havent made this into a valentines card

I love those little ladybirds at the bottom left hand side of the card!!! sooo cute

thanks for looking xx

A little bit cheeky!!!

well I was asked to make a 'not so lovey' valentines card
hope they like it!!
saw a card with a similar sentiment on in a shop, then the picture is from a CD, but forgotten which one now!
so simple really no messing just put it together quickly, was hardest to think what to put on as a sentiment really

cute card Thursday has a challenge called 'banish the blues' so will enter for that I think, hope its not too rude!
Papercutz challenge is to have a valentines card without hearts


just a nice simple straightforward card, but was a struggle to make because..........
I cut into some beautiful 12x12 paper, but not only does it look delish, it is very touchy feely! it is beautiful, it is from daisy bucket designs, and has a pattern on one side and the other is 4x 6inx6 in patterns, all different, so will be using it again
I want to use it for the challenge at charisma cards - no embellishments
thats it
short yet sweet

roll of a die!

the challenge at CRAFT this week is 'the roll of a die', I couldnt quite work out what that meant, I looked at the DT cards and I decided it was something to do with die cutting!!
so the card I have used with Edwin coloured with promarkers, had diecut frame and insert to the frame! I used freebie papers from nit wit, which were in one of my magazines once upon a time. The buttons are actually made out of paper too
the paper fits in with the challenge of plaid/tartan at crafty catz
