Valentines Card

Well at last all the snow is going! Drove down to Ipswich on Saturday and although there wasn't a lot of snow/ice enroute there was freezing fog in Lincolnshire and I not likey lol. Made it there and back in one piece though and think Stepdaughter was happy with her 18th birthday pressies....and I enjoyed the champagne hehe so it was worth it.

Back to normal today and as it's the 13th thought I'd better get a card made for Hubby for tomorrow. Old faithful Tatty Ted was put to use again and a bit of faux stitching just cos I like it!

Recipe :
Red Background card - From Craft Outlet at Spalding.
Backing Paper - Made By Me in Docrafts Digital Designer.
Image/Sentiment - Me To You Especially for you CD - Image and mat cut with Spellbinders Rectangle and Scalloped Rectangle.
Card Candi - From Goody bag swap.
Faux stitching around the edge.
Heart Border - Martha Stewart Punch.
Ribbon - From bargain bag in stash.
