Be My Valentine?

Thursday, 22 January 2009
How can anyone resist this cute lil' bear?? I am definitely loving these Elzybells bears, can you tell??

I am really pleased with how this card turned out as it wasn't how I had originally pictured it. I'm not always that good at thinking up layouts and tend to find myself looking at everyone's blogs for some inspiration. Is that cheating?

Anyway, the stamp is Teddy with Heart which has been coloured with copics, cut out and mounted with nestabilities. The layer behind has been embossed with the swiss dots embossing folder. The base is made up of red cs and core'dinations cs and finished off with some pink satin ribbon and papermania gems. The red cs has been decoratively trimmed with my Martha Stewart Lacy Doily punch. The sentiment is also from Elzybells.

After a well documented difficult 12 months, it's really nice to be back making cards and enjoying myself again. I'm starting to feel like my old self.

Hope everyone is having a good evening.

  1. Sarah this card is stunning. No, I don't think it's cheating looking at other people's blogs for inspiration, in fact I am sure we all do it !!
