Morning all, how are you today? I dill tarn't breed droo by doze! In a way it's my own fault - I've been cold free for about four years so this one has really taken hold. Talk about snuffles! Still, never mind, worse things happen at sea as they say.
Managed to lose Toad's Valentine card that I made for him (the one with the fabulous High Hopes "Snuggle Lions" that I made a couple of weeks ago). I'd put it somewhere safe. Very safe. So safe I couldn't find it. Had a bit of a tizz and a cry and had just written him a substitute when I found it, safe and well, nestling in my stamp box cupboard where I'd put it to keep it nice and flat. Hey ho!
So enough of my nonsense, to the cards ...... the ever fabulous Totally Gorjuss are "feeling the lurve" this week. It doesn't have to be Valentine, just a love theme. I had made this card for a very dear friend for whom I have a lot of affection so I hope that counts.
I've kept it simple because I think the Whiff of Joy City Girl "Willow Dressing Up" is just such a stunning image and I didn't want to lose her amongst too many embellishments. She's coloured with Copics, a very limited palette of skin tones plus Egg Shell, Raw Silk and Tea Rose for her dress and I used ProMarkers for her hair. Martha Stewart punch for the border, paper and pearls from stash, sentiment is Pink Gem. Here's a close up (but only because I am, for once, really chuffed with the colouring)
And my other card is for my darlin' daddy - I had already made him a card but I'm having second thoughts about it so I did this one as well. I'll decide on the day which one he gets!
The image is a Lili Of The Valley, coloured with ProMarkers. Papers are Dovecraft, cardstock is DCWV and Bazzil, peel-off sentiment, corners and borders from stash. Image cut out using a Nestabilities Pinking Circle.
Off to have another little play now so I may be back later. Hope you are having a happy Sunday.
