Bbbbrrrr, it's blooming chilly today. Lovely start with the sun shining and a wee bit of frost. Minus four it was just before the school run but warming a bit now thankfully!
We have a nice, warm and loving theme for you this time at
All Loved Up
So time to get out all those love hearts peeps!
I just had to use one of my cutie images this time, in the shape of Valentine Kitty,
and have teamed it up with Loving Corner (rotated) on this card:
I printed the corner onto the backing dp which came with a lacey border. Had to cut round that though to make it show on the red cardstock. Snippey-snip-snip!! I printed out Valentine Kitty and coloured the heart with the usual watercolour pencils, then just dabbed Kitty's face and paws with some ink. I raised the image on some foam pads for a bit of depth.
I added some red pearls in the top corner, and some red heart gems in the bottom corner, then tied a bow and added a cobbled together charm using some jewellery offcuts and leftovers. That big filigree heart was on a necklace I found whilst shopping with Mum when I visited last. It was on offer at a fiver and had six big charms on it, so I had to nab that one!
Right, off to make a start on the kids curtains. Got to make them myself, as the windows are in the roof line (vellux) and it's very awkward to get things to fit that don't sag in the middle (know the feeling!) So I fitted some strips top and bottom yesterday, and the curtain will hang stretched between them (hopefully). I saw that idea on a narrow boat years ago when hubby and I had a holiday on one.
Let's hope the idea works for me. . .!
