A bit lovey dovey!

Hello there! Happy Thursday!

I hope you are keeping well! Well, I've had such a busy week so far....I am involved with a big new project at work which is very exciting, but also quite full on...I can't wait until the weekend!

So in order to destress a little this evening, I decided it was time to do some crafting!

There is a fab new sketch to play with at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week....
 
 
Isn't it cute??
 
 To go with such a cute sketch and all the fab Valentine inspired challenges that are around at the moment I decided to go with a Valentine's themed card......
 
 
Hmmm...now I'm not entirely sure about this card...I think its the colour combo...I think the outside border needed to be a darker purple colour. But I didn't have any large sheets of dark purple paper and so that is actually coloured with my Promarkers...and it didn't come out as dark as I thought it would! However, I think I get Brownie Points for being creative! Hee, hee!!
 
I've stamped my image and cute sentiment, and coloured the image with my Promarkers. I have cut the large heart out of paper and then punched the smaller hearts. I have added a little sparkle to them with my Stickles.
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Cute Card Thursday - love struck
Simon Says Stamp - have a heart
Tuesday Throwdown - Hearts Strings (feature hearts and string/twine)
Top Tip Tuesday - Let me call you sweetheart
The Pink Elephant - inspirational photo....I was inspired by the hearts and the sweet treats
Di's Digi Challenge - Valentines/Love
 
Pop by all these fab blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created for inspiration!
 
I also thought I'd share with you my most recent bakes (well it wouldn't be right if there weren't some cakes on my blog would it??) ....
 
 
...these were enjoyed by my colleagues at work!
 
Thanks for popping by today!

Oh my goodness Wedgie, I have been on a diet for the past twelve days and what do I open up and see? All these wonderful goodies. I could just reach the computer in and grab one...LOL Your card this week is adorable. I love the cup images that you have used on the last couple of cards. They are really cool. Hope you are doing well.

Oh Wedgie, what a pretty card, I would love a cuppa at present. Love your colour combo two of my favourite together. Love your added heart embellishments. Your baking for works looks so lovely they would go perfectly with my cup of coffee but I've been diagnosed as a Coeliac which means I can't have gluten which is in flour and I'm not that impressed with gluten free cakes. Take care and have a great week. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

I love your colour combo Wedgie. I've just made some wedding invitations for a friend where I coloured the card with a promarker as I couldn't find the right colour card - I think it is the way to go and definitely brownie points are on their way to you. Thank you for sharing your card with us at SSW this week. Holly xx
