Cute Card Thursday #45 - Valentine

Seeing as how we only have a couple of weeks left now to get our Valentine's Day stuff sorted this is the theme this week on Cute Card Thursday. I only have 4 days left as DH goes back to work on Monday. I do keep reminding him that he'd better buy MY card before he goes away but apart from actually making or buying my own there's not a lot else I can do!!

It's so hard not going over the top on men's cards! I want ribbon, I want sparkle and all the usual suspects!!

I bought this cutie High Hopes character and the matching sentiment in the sale from Silly Monkeys specifically with Valentine's Day in mind - aren't they fabby?!! I have coloured my heart-stealing pal with Promarkers and filled in the heart with Diamond Glaze. Sentiment was stamped in Black Stazon on thick card coloured with dye ink and then triple embossed with gloss EP. Paper and card is from an old DCWV Mat Stack that I have just re-discovered. Sanded Core'dinations card, some Dovecraft Brads and Craftwork Cards Card Candy finish it off.

Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges - No Designer Paper

Well I would say I am just about there now health-wise. I am still pretty tired but don't feel ill now and my cough has subsided pretty much into the background now.

Talking of backgrounds (see that link - seamless!) - this week on Tilda & Friends ATC Challenges we want to see your home-made backgrounds as no Designer Paper is allowed!

Sitting Alva and Large Daisy by Magnolia Stamps have been coloured with Promarkers and Ranger white pen. The green card is Bazzill and I used a Cuttlebug border embossing folder on some SU card to make the edge. The sentiment is Stamps Away and is stamped in Rust Brilliance.

This is the lovely Anesha's last week and we are welcoming a new Guest Designer next week over on the challenge blog so pop on over to say "au revoir" and "bonjour" (and see the DT's ATCs!).
