I love you!

Here's a really early Valentine for you all...




I made it for the Bugaboo sketch challenge for today, but the sentiment goes out to you all. It isn't easy being isolated here for much of the time and it's difficult to explain really... but it's lovely to be able to post things on t'internet and get feedback where 'normal' people would just use their friends. To illustrate my point... the heating man came round for a repeat visit last week (bad radiators, baaad radiators! lol) and I remembered what he took in his tea as he'd been the *last* person to come and visit...

..I'm sure he left thinking that I was some sort of hermit.. hehe

So *love yous* *hugs* and *mmmwahs* to any of you who take their time to comment on my posts as sometimes it's the only communication I get all day besides Facebook (I love my new phone..even if I can't look at my PC monitor I can now browse The Interweb on my phone!!! wooo... posh! hehe)

Anyway, this was one of my new Bugaboo images ..

(Find her here ... 60 percent off sale still on for a few days! GO GO GO! Code KW696782 lol)

....and my first time I'd put her on a card... I print out many many images (I spoil so many with this stupid shaky hands) and she was lucky enough not to bee tooo spoiled hehe. I decided she'd like to be placed on purple mulberry paper and valentine heart ribbon.. it made her feel special dontchyaknow? :) The sentiment was made so fantastic by use of my scalloped circle nesties (they cut *and* emboss dontchyaknow? Get some! :P )

Here's where I need you though... after taking the photo I decided it needed some more pen round the outside... but should I have left it as it was or do you think it looks better this way? Thanks if you give me any ideas on this...



I would also like to enter this card here:

Hope you guys are feeling ok, spesh those of you who I know are going through a tough time too just now

Special *mmmwahs* to those who need them

  12. I am the exact opposite - I even forget sometimes how the girls and Craig have their tea. Memory lately is awful, just awful. I am trying to get away with saying I'm a flakey artiste... dont think it's working somehow!

    Love this card and myself? I love the red round the edge ;)

  35. Love it! Love Bugaboo images! And, personally, I think it looks best with the extra edging - think it balances with the edging round the image! I kinda vaguely know Catterick - its one of those places we drive past once in a while and you mentally say "Oh so THATS where it is!!!".
    Hope you got your radiators sorted this time round!

    Thanks for joining in with Aud Sentiments

  36. Huge MWWWWAAAAHHHHS from me to you!

    I love your card - both versions. Couldn't make a decision if my life depended on it so I'm no use :) I'll swap you no radiators for bad radiators if you want ;) Oh and I want your phone (insert stomping feet noises here) can't justify a new one but I want one (insert more stomping noises) Jaqui x
