Charisma Cardz - I Love You

Good morning, it's dull and damp here this morning, I hope it brightens up a bit as my youngest is off on a trip with the school this morning to a wildlife park where they get to see a special swan feeding session! She doesn't really think she wants to go, at the moment she is a bit teary at school again, she has to have the reassurance that there is an adult there she can be with, thankfully my friend accross the road who's daughter is also in Hollie's class is helping out so I asked if she could be with her and they said it was fine. She was ok when I left her, it will just be when it's time to get on the bus and who she sits with!!

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.

Hi Joanne! Love your gorgeous card sweetie, the papers are gorgeous!!
Poor little Hollie, I hope that she goes on ok! Dylan isn't really into making friends with anyone at the moment but he doesn't mind, the teacher says he just wanders about all day watching everyone lol!! He's been paired up with a little boy and they hug when they see each other, but sometimes Dylan hides from him! They are strange little creatures aren't they!!
Love Becky xx
