Some Valentines

Morning all,

A day off work today ....yah! :)

I'd booked the day to wait in for my new washing machine ...don't we take these appliances for granted when we have them - I've not done any washing since Sunday and I'm sure we'd all be walking around in our PJ's all day if it were to continue!
Luckily the delivery man phoned at half 7 to say he'd be here in 10 mins - so my new washing machine is now waiting to be attached the the water and power - hubby is home at 4 so that gives me a little while to read the bumf and work out what programmes I will be using! Washing machine will be earning its keep this weekend!!!

On to some cards I've done over the last day or 2....

I fancied trying a more CAS design and printing directly onto the card ....I always print onto cheapy copy paper first to work out the placement on the card.

The quote is from 'Cloud 9 and' has been heat embossed, the corner and scroll are Papermania Vinyl Stickers - they are pretty cool too!

This card was made for my friend and her 9 month old son to give to her hubby so I had to bear in mind that it was for a dad too!
The verse inside read....'To the World you are someone, to us you are the World'... I made it a little different to the original version but I felt my adapted version was more suited ;)

I'm going to spend the rest of the day finishing a Valentine Exploding Box for another friend to give her fella - may be able to show you later ;)

Some challenges I'd like to enter (either of) my Valentine CAS cards into.....
