Happy Valentine's Day!

So did you do the whole Valentine's thing then?  Supposedly we were just exchanging cards, but I got up to presents!  Which is lovely, but now I feel guilty that I didn't get anything for Pav... and we've all got yet another rotten cold, so it's going to be takeaway and lemsip tonight lol, ugh I really do feel awful, been shivering all day.

Anyway, here's the card I made for hubby - he doesn't 'get' girl images on male cards, so I've used the lovely Chester, with some gorgeous new Bo Bunny papers from My Crafty Heart.  I suppose I could have used one of my couple stamps, but I just wanted to colour this one :o)

Items Used
Digi stamp - I Heart Chester - Pollycraft
(but now available as a rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet)
Colouring - copics
Papers - NEW Bo Bunny Family Is - MCH
Memory Box Precious Hearts die - MCH
Sentiment - Simply Valentine Greetings - DigiStamp Boutique
MFT die-namics chevron die
Red pearl from my stash

Copics Used (remembered for once!)
Brown - E31, E33, E35, E37
Turquoise - BG15, BG49
Blue - B97, B99, BV29
Red - R05, R27, R29, R46

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Cupcake Craft - fab sketch
Divas by Design - love & romance
Cute Card Thursday - an eye for detail
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Moving Along With The Times - love is in the air

Hope you all have a lovely evening - probably a lot more romantic than mine lol :o)

Ooh, I almost forgot... look at my followers... just 1 away from 1000 eeeeek!  We'll have a little candy soon to celebrate I think!

Such a cute card :-) My hubby doesn't "get" girls on guy cards either - give him something witty every time, lol. BTW, I could only see your followers by Signing In... don't know if it's just a one off glitch but thought I'd let you know (still "only" 999 when I looked, lol) Donna xx
