It's weekend, wish you all a good one,
and a happy Valentine's Day - you can never have too much love!
I have made 2 Valentine's cards that I want to share with you today:
I used 6" square cards for both. The first card was covered with shiny red paper (which Suze used to wrap my Christmas presents). I added a metallic border along the left side. The heart is made of chipboard, and has been gessoed, covered with scraps of vintage papers and gilding flakes, and glazed with crackle lack. The roses are rub-ons. I added some flowers and ribbon as embellishments.
The second one has been made from a gold card, with a mat of glittered white roses. The heart is a book mark, cut from an ancient die, and stamped with my fave love stamp. I added some pearls and flowers as embellishments.
And now I would like to show you some happy mail that reached me this week.
This beautiful heart was made by Maelchen, who recently had a giveaway on her blog, and I was one of the lucky winners of one of her dreamy hearts. It is just stunning, and even nicer to have and hold than on the photos. Thanks for this wonderful present; it will be treasured!
Diane sent me a whole roll of washi tapes in various widths and colours, and as they are plain, they can be written on, or stamped or drawn on, just wonderful! Thanks for this lovely surprise, Sweetie
And last but not least, Carolyn sent me this wonderful card and a set of Monet cards, which have pictures and plans of his garden, and lots of information. I am looking forward to using these in some creations in the near future. Thanks Carolyn, this was a wonderful surprise!
It's great to have so many good Blogger friends, hank you all!
And now some pictures of my hungry visitors again. I love watching them hungrily pecking their food each day, and love to see them on my balcony.
Have a great day you all, take care of yourselves,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
