Brimming With Love


Happy New Year - i hope you all had a good one, we had a quiet Xmas, then drove to Yorkshire on the 27th and it took nearly 9 hours !!, we came back Sunday night, so New Years Eve for us was very quiet, then on the 3rd it was H's 6th Birthday and unfortunately i was ill and i was gutted as we had tickets to see 'Disney On Ice' at Wembley Arena, Alan took H on his own and they met up with his best friend Chloe and her family and a good day was had by all.

Ok i officially 'HATE' Blogger on Internet Explorer - they decided to play with it and then i couldn't upload my photo on to it, so after 2 hours of Alan trying, we tried Google Chrome and it worked perfectly.

Today's colour scheme is unusually for me, especially as it's a Valentines one, but it started with a piece of paper from the fabby Bo Bunny - 'Crush' pad, i've added white heart pearls to the mug. I managed to get hold of the white version of the fabby ribbon i used on my 'Nose Kiss', the punched edge is MS - 'Valentines Lace', the embossed hearts in the corner on black card is Country Companions - 'Lover's Lane', i've treated myself to the Sizzix Hearts - both plain and scalloped, the sentiment is PB - 'Love You ...'.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'White And One Other' - I chose Black

Totally Gorjuss - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes With Ribbon'

Charisma Cardz - where Challenge No: 52 is 'Monochrome'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Simon Says Stamp - where the Challenge is 'New Something' - i've used my new ribbon, pearls and Sizzix Hearts

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No : 240 and it's brilliant and as i have 10 Valentines cards to make, it will come in very handy, thank you.

Adorable card Sam, love the monochromatic look. I've been on Google Chrome for yonks and it works perfectly - this was due to problems with IE - never looked back. Hugs, Claire xx PS: Happy New Year x

I changed to Chrome ages go and it is so much better. Hope you are better now, what a shame you missed that show. This is an adorable card, makes a change to have a b&w card.

Sorry you were poorly for H's birthday. My two are just about back to health but it's back to school on Tuesday so no doubt they'll come down with something else!!
