Happy Valentine's Day...

.... to you all.  Hope you all got a little spoilt.  I got some beautiful craft storage off my fella and a card and I got my son a Valentine's teddy and large marshmallow lollipop lol.

Here is my card to my fella Col...

I got the idea for this card from one of my magazines (Cardmaking and Papercraft) and to make it you had to buy expensive dies which I don't have so I made the most of what I do have.  One of the dies was a rectangle stitch die.  I just cut a rectangle piece of card and punched little holes all around (using a ruler) and a punchy tool.  Took ages, but was worth it.  I die-cut the centre with a circle die and the grass was made from an icicle die from Joy Crafts.  My cute little image is from the Digi Stamp boutique and is coloured with ProMarkers.  I did enjoy making this!
