Valentine's Day

Hello, I hope you all are having a lovely day today!  We will be having our Valentine's on Wednesday as DH works weekend nights and it takes him until Wednesday to come round!  Id like to show a card I made for my DD1 to receive from her man, it took me about a week as I know she loves beautiful cards and I was so nervous incase it wouldn't be good enough.  How daft are we?  I'd always declined from making cards for my girls from their chaps as I wanted them to be given really special ones but after seeing the card that one of them got for a xmas one year, I realised that one of mine would have been far better!

I had seen many collaged hearts on blogland for a while now and they always made a statement.  Id seen beaded, flowered, a mix of both and heart shapes used inside and they all looked so beautiful.  The end result came slowly together and I used all of the red paper from my red scraps folder and blinged it slightly with some red stickles and tried a little doodle in black sakura on the plain black layer.

For the inside I wanted to keep it fairly plain so my (hopefully) future son in law could write of his undying love to my girl!  The sentiment is from the wonderful Shaz - (formerly of funky fairies) and I think it was nicely appropriate.

I wanted an elegant envelope so made one using PM's Clare Curds Signature range and a lovely red sheer ribbon.  I hope you like it.

I would like to enter this into this week's challenge over at

wow Keryn! a stunning Valentine, and I love the big bow and the text inside too. My Spica pen isn't scratchy, sounds like the ink isn't coming through on yours, maybe turn it upside down? I admit that the clear one is slower flowing than the other ones I have and if I go too fast it feels a bit scratchy.
hugs, annie x
