Valentine's day

I hope you all had a good day today.

We stopped 'doing' Valentine's cards a few years ago but when I got up I found this waiting for me on the table.

A beautiful red rose in a glass vase with a sprouting bamboo. Mick had bought it on his way home from work.
Sadly I now have to spend the evening alone as he is already back at work after being in bed most of the day.

The question for week 6 on is.....

If I could do it all again would I change anything?

I've kept the pages very simple this week as I felt that the journalling has more to say than the images.

I did this last night before I had the chance to look at anyone else's answers so as not to be swayed by them and their ideas.

As usual the backgrounds are taken from the Walk in Wonderland Cd. The ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

Valentine cards

As usual I have to make a valentine's card for Mick's workmate to give to his wife. I've done 2 for him to choose from.
This first one uses free papers from Making Cards magazine and follows an example given in there. The only difference is that I have used ivory coloured ribbon from my stash and added one of the tags.This second one is on pink cardstock and has hearts embossed with D'vine swirls from Cuttlebug. They are layered onto pale pink organza ribbon, silver mirror card and palest pink paper. 3 pink gems and a peel-off greeting finish it off.I wonder which one he will choose. The other will be saved for me to use later in the year to give as an Anniversary card.


This week on Lili of the Valley challenge site we were told.....
We would like to see your creations for MEN.

This card uses a stamp from Lili of the Valley, Oliver-text.
I've coloured it with watercolour pencils and waterbrush. The backing papers and tag are from HOTP citrus block and the ribbon is from Hobbycraft. The sentiment is a peel-off.
