The Love Tree !!


I've been playing this week with the some of my Tim Holtz Distressing Inks, that i received in the post - and today's card is darker than i would normally go for, I like it but not sure if i distressed it too much, what do you think ?, i've also done colours that i would not normally put with a Valentines card - but it's good to be different sometimes and allows me to use non hearts paper !!! It also means i have now made 8 Valentines cards and i only have 2 to go, yipee !!!

This week i was also very fortunate enough to win the lovely Nicolas's Blog Candy, thanks hun, i look forward to using it.

Such cute little Hedgehogs and I love the way you have decorated the tree with hearts. It really stands out on your card. A lovely Autumnal feel to it with those lovely backing papers. Thank you for joining us twice this month at the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge and we hope to see more of your lovely creations in our next challenge.

This is adorable Sam. Love the image. What a great idea to add those shiny hearts to the tree. Love the border too, perfect for the image.
Thank you so much for playing along at Penny Black @ all sorts. Hope you'll play again next week and then next months for a brand new challenge! Good luck with the prizes.

Hi Sam

What a really lovely card.

As Ellie said, what a wonderful idea adding those embellies to the tree, they stand out beautifully and really lift the image.
