Love Tail


Well in the madness of todays birthday party for 4 year old son, that starts at 2pm (so half of this post is being done now at 12pm and i'm sure the rest will get done later !!!), i have some how managed to find time to (it was my way of destressing) make this cute card.

When i saw a challenge saying Pink, Red and White with the option of hearts !!, i knew exactly which paper i was going to use - Doodlebug - Love Potion with the gorgeous red velvet hearts on it, (i'm hoping the photo has picked it up) - the image is one i received in the a swap and it's a sweetie. I've also got for some texture - embossed hearts, red velvet paper and ribbon - that i've had for about 2 years, bought it in a sale as you do and have never used it until now !!!

Right onto the Card and Challenges :

The Secret Crafter - where Challenge No: 116 is 'Tons Of Texture' - embossed hearts, red velvet paper, ribbon, heart punch

Wags N Whiskers - where Challenge No: 43 is 'Valentines Day'

Sketch and Stash - where they are up to Sketch No: 52 and my old things are the DP, Ribbon, Punch and Image

Colour Create - where Challenge No: 61 is 'Pink, Red & White' with an option of Hearts

Tuesday Throwdown - where Challenge No: 30 is 'Embossing'

Penny Black At Allsorts - where January's Challenge is 'All You Need Is Love'

Image - Penny Black - 'Love Tail'
Paper - Doodlebug - 'Love Potion'
Ribbon - DCWV - 'Love'
Punched Border - MS - 'Valentine Lace'
Embossed Paper - Cuttlebug - 'Hearts'
Distressing - Tim Holtz - 'Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet'

Just for those who asked Party went very well thank you and they all seemed to enjoy it - thank goodness Mummy and Daddy (My OH and I) are now very shattered  !!!

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
