Cute Card Thursday Challenge 45 - Valentines


Today's card is for this week's Cute Card Thursday challenge:
Challenge 45 - Valentines
In case you hadn't noticed it is fast approaching, only a couple of weeks to get your Valentines cards and gifts made. This week we would like to see your Valentines creations, simple as that!


DH and I have never bothered with this (I know, we're sad!) so I don't usually 'do' Valentine, but there are so many sweet images about at the moment that I've gone a bit mad and made loads! I just hope that both my boys' may want a card, goodness only knows what I'm going to do with all the rest.
Anyway, I thought this one would fit the bill for this week's challenge....

Card Details:
* Images - Hangler & Stangler
* Image coloured with Letraset Pro-markers
* Backing papers - Papermania 'Simply Elegant'
* Border punch - Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace'
* Hugs and kisses sentiment - K & Co


I'm really enjoying making cards at the moment, the only problem is I forget to check out the card challenges BEFORE I make the cards, and then find that they don't fit any challenges, ah well that's what happens when you reach a 'certain' age, the memory goes completely!

It's a great card Chrissie, I love the colours you have chosen. We don't do 'valentines' either. But if my OH ever gave me a card for anything I would suspect him of being up to something :lol. He doesn't 'do' cards at all
