A little bit of Love!


Firstly, I would like to say Happy World Card Makers Day to you all. If you haven't already done so it would be well worth a look at Moxie Fab World where over the last few days they have been looking at cards from crafters all over the world. Personally, I think the UK crafters did us proud so please have a look - the more you comment the more prizes you could win!!!

Well this very nearly didn't happen - the printer went all funny on me after I changed three of the cartridges. I cleaned it three times and then did a deep clean and eventually left it to my more patient husband to deal with!!! Thankfully the printer has now recovered, and I can get on with the card and post.
I chose to use the sketch at MyGrafico and Tuesday Morning Sketchers who have combined forces this week - a double whammy!!!

I then finally managed to use the free image at There's Magic in the Air which had to have some sparkle on it too. I think you can see it on the icicles - crystal glitter. I have used papers from It's Funky Too CD Rom from Funky Hand and Summer Driggs freebie Memories. The circles were made using My Craft Studio.


There is also a heart gem on the word love. The sentiment is also from one of the Funky Hand CDs I forget which one - sorry. I almost forgot the buttons were from my stash and the observant amongst will have noticed that one of them is a butterfly!
I am also entering this card in the Digital Tuesday Challenge where they want to see a heart somewhere on your project. Also at Craft Catz it is their second challenge which is Butterflies.
I am off to do a bit of blog hopping so I will leave you with the hope that you will visit me and leave a comment.

Hi Ali,
This is beautiful and I love the colours you have used. The image is gorgeous and looks great with the glitter.
I'm glad you got your printer sorted - I have a bad relationship with my printer and often hand over to hubby to sort it out!
