Valentine card time

DH is a funny thing when it comes to Valentine's day. As a relatively 'old married couple' now he doesn't see the point. Then every so often he surprises me and I get card, flowers, chocs .... (must admit that is a bit of a rarity lol.)
Well this year I have made him a card. I based it on a card or 2 in my lovely Magnolia Ink magazine, bit of a mix between the 2 cards lol.
Paper is Two Scoops BG, prima flowers with 2 rosebud centres, BG alphabet sticker, ovals cut on my scalloped and plain nesties and the hearts are a metal silver heart with a red heart brad centre. Tilda coloured with a mix of copics (fleshy bits) and watercolours. Well I don't have many copics lol.
Now should I make him a card to send to me ?????

Yoo hoo I'm back

In the end I didn't like the card I had made for the twins arrival (or the ones I had left from my slae last year) so had a go at this easel card.

Papers are B G sugared. I used my labels nesties to mount Tilda with baby Tingla and Cool Edwin on. Prima flowers with a rose bud added to one and pearls for the centre of the other.

Had to have just the one baby in the stamped image as I don't have one with two on. Does anybody do stamps with twins in mind ????
The card stays open by resting against a line of s/a pearls inside the card.
Forgot to say that the twins arrived last Friday. One of each kind lol. Sadie and Tyler. Tyler, 2 mins older and 1lb 4oz heavier than his little sister Sadie. Only seen a photo of them via my mobile phone so far and not sure when we will get to meet them yet.

Baby card time

My nephew and his G F are expecting twins this year. (More Great Nephew / Nieces? for me to add to the growing list!!!!!) I decided to make a couple of cards in readiness for their happy event. I pieced together a couple of my Magnolia stamps and like the results. (That's a result believe me, lol.) Haven't managed to take a photo yet as the light was fading, so I will take it tomorrow and add it here then. Felt good to be crafting again after the Christmas holidays. I am aiming to visit my blog more often this year ..... and blog hop round too. Been a bad hopper :-(
