AN extra special card

I had the pleasure of making my sister a 30th card this last week! I can honestly say that I'm quite pleased that she's finally joined the 30's club!! I've been there for nearly 5 years and my brother for now 2 so it was due for my fabulous little sister to step up and celebrate!! I had some fun putting her card together, using some of my fav techniques including spritzing, and roughing and blues and Crumb cake!
I also added an old doily for some Old world style! I totally LOVE this card, I know that Sarah will too!! How about you?? Made anything that you absolutely LOVED recently!
I'd love to hear about it!

Happy Valentine's Day (and JAI challenge)

Hello my dear friends! Long time no blog....
Well it's the day of LOVE! So many things in life to love and cherish! For me GOD is certainly at the top of the list, then my spunky and wonderful husband, my amazing and treasured children, family and friends and certainly close to the top is STAMPING!!!! Over at JUST ADD INK they're talking all about LOVE too, hop on over and check out the LOVE!
So for this Valentine's Day I jumped on the USA band-wagon and made LOTS of LOVE cards for all those that I treasure. It was fun writing in the things that I LOVE about them and am feeling already excited at the LOVE that will be filling my friends letter boxes today! Like sending a big HUG! YAY!
I also got busy making a special little LOVE box for Allan, the LOVE of my life. I had so much fun with this project and am already keen to make another. I listed inside some of my favourite things about our LOVE and what I LOVE about him.

My LOVE box and matching card

Inside the box is like an accordion all full of LOVE

So dear readers, friends and the blogging world...
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY - may you be treated by your "love" with chocolates or flowers or even both, enjoy lots of cuddles and feel indeed LOVED!
