Live & Love Crafts DT Card

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!!! I hope you have a wonderful valentine's & hope you are surrounded by love. This is the day to tell that special someone how much you love them............although please do it everyday........we can never hear 'I love you' too much can we.

Ok so as you know us girlies have the theme of Inspired By a Romantic Song/Film this week. My original one for today did not get finished in time boo hoo.......will show it you another time though.
So this was a emergency fall-back kinda creation lol.
Ok so the film that inspired me is called 'Childhood Sweethearts'........although I have to admit to never watching it!! I wanted a card to represent me & my hubster.........we were childhood sweethearts, I was 15 & he had just turned 18............So this is why I chose this film. I'm not really a sloppy film watching kinda gal tbh, I prefer action, thriller, zombies & vampires lol.......

The papers are older Pion ones but are just so so pretty, I love the softness of these ones. Of course as always all links will be at the bottom of the post.

This of course is the inside which I decorated as always. There is still a space to add which to write a message of course & there is a small space at the top for a small message or verse. Isn't this paper so pretty.

I lurve this glitter tulle & all women deserve some sparkle in their life dont you think girls ;-)

This card I thought would be perfect as an Anniversary card, showing you when you were in love when you were younger...........if you see the Tim Holtz pin on the left side, in it I have placed a small Cabochon I made a long time ago. The older woman in the cabochon is to portray a woman after many years together as they would no longer be childhood sweethearts...........although still very much in love.

All the dies used are Joy Crafts dies from Noor Design UK. The edging was done with a Martha Stewart punch.

Well thats it from me, I hope you all have a lovely valentine's weekend. We are having our grandchildren tonight so our son can spend a romantic night with his beautiful fiance. We celebrate ours on the 18th as that is our wedding anniversary.

Tatty bye, lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Deep Ocean Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Well it's time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenges this fortnight & the theme is perfect for this time of year............
...........see, how easy is that with Valentine's just around the corner ;-)
Ok here is my card, now the image would you believe I coloured up over 2 weeks ago & the base of the card I made up about a week ago. However I only finally finished it this morning.... things have just kept cropping up.
The papers I've used are Pion's 'Forget Me Knot 6x6' from the 'From My Heart ll Collection which is now discontinued, although this sheet is still available over at Live & Love Crafts.
I've inked the edges with Pumice Stone & machine sewn them.

The flowers here are from my stash, the sentiment is LOTV 'Sentiment Tags'. Under the flower I have 2 Joy Crafts dies, 1 is the scroll & the other is one of the Vintage Flourishes Key die, which I then attached the LOTV tag to.
There is also Joy Crafts 'Vintage Swirl Leaf' die under there as well. These dies were some of the new dies I got from Noor Design UK last week.

This is the inside decorated, doily from my stash & the Butterfly is a Magnolia Doo-Hickey & I attached a 'Frosted Berry' cut in half to the centre & a MF Pearl.

This is the larger of the 2 Joy Crafts Key dies & I've hung another LOTV Sentiment Tag off it. The key got covered in Crackle Accents. I've also attached the 'XOXO' to the end of the key which was embossed with blue frantage. The chain I attached the tag to is from my stash.

The stamp is Magnolia 'You Are My Valentine Tilda' coloured with distress inks & markers. I also added some Fran-Tage around the image.
Up in the top corner you can see the 'Carpe Diem' which was from the 'Sending Love' die..
Some of the flowers are from LLC & the leaves are Joy Crafts 0331 & Joy Crafts 0037, both from Tracy's Noor Design shop here in the UK.
As I've said before I ordered on the wednesday noon & they were here awesome & fantastic is that!!!!!!!!!!!!
The beautiful lace & rose trim are form my favourite shop Live & Love Crafts. I used my Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page for the edgeing on the card. Doilies are from my stash.

Thats it form me my lovelies, but please pop on over to see my uber talented teamies...........and we also have our super talented new teamies joining us now. Pop on over to see their creations & give them a super warm welcome.

Ok I'm away now.........actually this is scheduled so I was away a few hours ago getting work done as I have a couple of commisions to do.
Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by it means so so much to me.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxxxx
