Cupid At Work


After weeks of stress and 7 interviews (yes 7), my darling other half has gone and got himself a new job (we found out about it 2 weeks ago, but i wasn't allowed to say anything, until he had officially resigned), to say we are all happy is an understatement - only problem is it's London and Europe based, which means son, Whisper and I will probably see less of him.

I so love traditional colours for Valentines Cards - Red and Black and the papers Bo Bunny - 'Crush' are so ideal too (in fact i may have to get myself another pad, as i love them so much). The image was sent to me ages ago by my lovely friend Janice, thanks hun.  There is hearts on the image, but to make them stand out, i've used heart gems, the black heart ribbon slider, i've had for a while - in fact i have them in a couple of colours and not used any of them !!!

Crafty Ribbons - where Challenge No: 11 is 'Love Is Red And Black'

Meow - I do love that stamp, & you've made a great card with it too! Not surprised you want more of those papers - gorgeous they are! Well done to Alan! Jx

Another lovely creation Sam and the DP's coordinate beautifully.

It's tough if hubbys new job will take him away more, but it could be the stepping stone to better things.

Thanks so much for joining us our Hearts theme at Allsorts this week and Penny Black and More love and Hearts theme this month, good luck with both and hope to see you again.
