Anyway enough rambling and onto the job in hand! We have a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and it was down to me to choose the theme this week, if you don't like it you know who to blame lol!! With Valentine's Day fast approaching and my anniversary the following week I thought it was quite fitting to go with the 'I LOVE YOU' theme. You don't have to stick to making a card it can be a gift, a gift bag to put a gift in, a scrapbook page etc.
I was going to used the meerkat image again but in the end went for a completely different style which I'm still not sure whether I like or not! I was lucky enough to get a super bargain pack of My Minds Eye papers and they are soooo... pretty (pretty enough to be put on the I want to keep these and not use pile lol!) that I wanted to make a card with them, they match beautifully. I also thought I would give some templates a go which came free with my magazine a couple of months ago, normally they just get tossed aside and just moved around never used. I used the 2 birds as they had different plumage I gathered 1 was male the other female and put them together as though they are kissing! The sentiment is a rub on which was part of a Valentines candy I won about 3 years, see I don't get to use this sentiment too often lol!!
We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who have kindly donated a $20 gift certificate for the lucky winner.
Please drop by at the blog to see the gorgeous samples from the girls.
I would also like to enter my card into the Lili of the Valley challenge which is Valentine's.
