Love and Ribbons

Its been a long week this week with my little one being home from school with some horrible virus and my Dad still hobbling about on crutches so I haven't had much time for crafting!

I just had time to make this simple card. After purchasing the recent issue of Crafts Beautiful Magazine I was inspired to make this card by one of the articles in it. I used a 6 x 6 inch card blank and layered lace, ribbon and buttons. I finished the card with three wooden hearts. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges :
Card Crafters Circle - Love is In The Air
Crafty Catz - Love is in the Air
Daring Cardmakers - Love is in the Air
Simply Create Too - Valentines

Wired Heart Card

Its that time of year for hearts and flowers! This card I have made for a couple of years and is proving to be one of my best sellers in my online craft stores. So I thought I'd finally get round to sharing it with you!

I cut the heart with my Sizzix machine and then wrapped it with wire threaded with beads. The background is cut with decorative scissors and inked with Distress Ink. Finally I used alphabet rubons for the greeting.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
