Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day to you all! We have been having a relaxing day as the kids are at their grandparents today. We have been out for brunch, walked the dog and read the papers. Oh and I have been given some beautiful red roses! Bliss!

This is the card that I sent to my hubby this year


I guess it's called digital hybrid card as I created the words in Microsoft Publisher and printed onto some textured paper.I did the same with the sentiment. Both were then layerd onto some lovely deep red textured cardstock from the Papermill Shop and mounted with 3d foam dots.

The card has been put through the printer and made grey with a Digital Paper called Wash from Pink Petticoat and then ribbons and brads were added. Best of all is the red heart in place of the 'O' in LOVE. This is a Mother of Pearl Heart Pendant from the Swarovski Crystalized Shop which I fixed on with another heart shaped brad.

Glad to say Hubby was suitably impressed, which was a relief!

I also made a couple of cards for my friends who are husband and wife and both asked me to make valentines cards for each other! It was quite fun yesterday when they both wanted to come and pick them up. I ended up dropping one round and letting the other pick one up!


My friend Manisha picked out a Kraft cardstock with the Mother of Pearl Heart mounted onto another heart which has been stamped with a heart stamp from Stampin Up. Some black and red ribbon has been run underneath and the sentiment was printed from the computer.


This is the card that I made for Manisha from her husband with some a digital paper from Pink Petticoat mounted onto black cardstock. There is a white ornate heart mounted onto some shiny red card also punched with a heart and a little heart gem added beside it. The red ribbon was mounted onto black cardstock and run underneath.

As I was looking through our keepsake draw I found the card that I made for hubby last Valentines Day before I was blogging and when I had just started making my own cards.



AAh, I can't believe it has almost been a year since I started making cards now, what ever did I do before!  I hope that you all have a lovely weekend and a great week ahead!

These are all lovely cards Tracey - no wonder your Husband was pleased. I love the colours you used which reminds me of denim and the New England look (don't ask me why, that might just be in my head!!!).
