I'm just hoping for a quiet and relaxing weekend - we seem to have had so much going on the last few weeks that I'm really in need of a 'do nothing' sort of weekend. Our French exchange student leaves us in the early hours of tomorrow - and thankfully it all seems to have gone quite well. He's a lovely boy, very polite and always smiling! (Quite nice to have a teenage boy that chats and smiles a lot - ours doesn't do a lot of that at the moment! Although he's had to be nice and polite and chat to us this week - ALL week! - as he's had his visitor here. I think the strain is starting to show.....).
Anyway, less of my waffle! As it's Friday, it's time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz and this week - as it's fast approaching Feb 14th! - our lovely Nina has chosen the theme of 'Love is in the air'. This doesn't have to be a Valentine card - but just one that shares the LOVE so it could be anniversary, wedding, engagement, etc. The DT have definitely got into the romantic mood - don't forget to have a look at their fantastic creations!
I've used some Kanban papers for mine
I love that black and cream combination, and decided to add a splash of rich, shiny red! I've tried making some rolled roses for the first time - so apologies if they're a bit skew! The sentiment stamp is from LOTV, the large die cut heart is from Marianne and I've also used the precious hearts dies from Memory Box, with a few red dew drops.
So quite a simple one. But I should confess that my brain is really not functioning at full speed at the moment and I'd made a card for a different challenge so had to quickly put one together for this one - oops! I hope my DT friends will forgive me!
Please have a look at the inspiration on the CraftyCatz challenge - and join us with your 'LOVE' creations.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
