Making a Start ....

.... on Valentine's Day cards! I am trying to be organised and now with Christmas out of the way (for a while until I start chipping away at those cards!) I thought I'd make a start on Valentine's cards, so be prepared to see quite a few in the coming weeks!

I have a little basket of them placed outside the Managers office at nursery and I sell quite well - last year I only had a few left!

The current Crafty Garden challenge is this sketch which was originally for a layout, but can be adapted for a card.I've used papers from Patti Picklicious cd by Kirsty Wiseman which have been printed onto wonderful 300gsm ivory linen effect card. I've dotted tiny black dots around the edge of the main panel for a little definition.

The heart stamp was a freebie on a magazine last year which I found in my stash. The two flowers have been layered and are from The Craft Garden - there is a matching tiny red button in the centre but you can't see it too well.

I really do like these papers especially the red so be expecting more of these!!

  • Backing papers: Patti Picklicious by Kirsty Wiseman
  • Flowers: From The Craft Garden
  • Stamp: From my stash
