Happy Valentines Day

Romance is in the air 

This is a card I have made for my boyfriend for valentines day using the fantastic freebie from Mo Manning, it was free for a very limited time and I'm so glad I was on the ball for once and got it.

 I coloured this Mo Mannings image with promarkers, the papers and ribbon are from my stash and I got the arrow from an old scrapbook inspirations freebie. I tried to keep it simple as it was for a boy but couldn't help adding the ribbon/bow, stickles to the rub-on heart and some black gems down the side of my thief. We exchanged cards this morning and my boyfriend loved it, I normally buy him cards or make them on moonpig, but he insisted I make him one this year :-)

With a little help from my friends the cheesy poem inside read:

Like a thief in the night
You gave me a fright
But from the start
you stole my heart!! (told you it was cheesy :-) )

I would like to add my card into some challenges

These are the beautiful flowers I got this morning, I just love the colours 

As for Miss Maggie, she was a bit of a rascal today at the park, she stole another tiny puppy's ball and burst it, although in her defense the puppy's owner was playing with the ball with her, and I did tell him she was a destructive madam with toys. It was very cute watching the tiny ball of fluff chance after her and I'm sure theyll both have a good nap later. 

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog xox
