Fishing For Love !!!


I usually send 10 Valentines cards to SOS for the troops and as Joy wants them by November and at present i only have 5 made - i'm sorry but the next couple of posts will all be love related !!! - my OH thinks somebody from the Para's will have this card, as it's their colours.

Today's card is using a technique i have never used before !, but i rather like it and would definetly use it again - it started out as a challenge over on the Docrafts Challenge section and it was set by the lovely Angie Babes and Teresa - we were forwarded to this amazing blog Hanna's Hobby, where i was then forwarded on to another blog Stampartic, where one of their tutorials showed you how to make ribbon frames - i must admit i did end up using a lot more ribbon, then i had antcipated though !!

The other challenges i'm entering are :

Delightful Challenge - where this weeks Challenge is 'Red, Green and White'

Pennys Paper Crafty - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Circles'

Paper Playtime - where Challenge No: 19 is 'Ribbon, Buttons or Rhinestones'

My internet has been playing up today, so i'm hoping it will be ok, while i link up the challenges.

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
