love is all around us...

Hello to you all and greetings for 2011,    late i know, but I hope 2011 proves to be a good one for all my fellow crafters.

Although I have made a few cards this year  they have been "just for fun or friends "so I have neglected my Blog and need to get stuck in so to say.

With Valentines Day just around the corner I decided to get with it and make something appropriate and maybe be lucky and win some of the great prizes out on offer.

This cardstock is a lovely purple which as usual shows up blue.
However I had great fun making this card and love how it turned out.

I don't usually get anything for Valentines Day but do expect my loved one to rush through with a glass of red and he is just as cute as Mr Hedgie here.
I am entering this card for a number of challenges all with a LURVE type theme so here we go:
Stampin for the weekend with St Valentines Day
The Allsorts Challenge Blog It must be love , love ,love and the sister challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts which is say it with flowers (I just threw in the glass of red for good measure)
Digi Doodles Shops Best  has a Valentines theme and Papertake Weekly Challenge Anything goes plus flowers
PaperPlay Challenges asks for Stamp it Out
and lastly Simon Says Stamp Challenge , says Love is in the Air

I hope you all have a very relaxing Sunday , we have had a sweltering weekend so far with high humidity and 30 degree temperatures so i am hiding inside for now.
Let me know what you think of my card please i love to read your comments.
