Be my Valentine...........

Hello Everyone

Hope you've all had a good week.  The weather down here in Somerset has been pretty good this week apart from some horrendous winds on Tuesday evening which saw a neighbour's small greenhouse end up in our garden!!!  Enough said!

Anyway on to my Valentine card that I have made my hubby.  Here it is:

I started off with an 8"x 8" scalloped card base and cut out 3 mats, two red and one white.  The top red mat went through my machine with my We R Memory Keepers Next Level Dotted e/f.  The fancy toppers were cut using Sue Wilson Portuguese Collection - Lisbon and the sentiment is Honey Doo Crafts Life & Heart stamps.  The die cut sentiment is Penny Black and I just cut the Happy away from the other part of the die so I could put it in opposite corners of the card.  Each embossed heart has a small gem in the centre.  Flowers and ribbon were from my stash, as were the hat pins.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Happy crafting.
