Lexi's Creations.....Love

Hi Susan here....

Isn't time flying, we are in February already and something special is looming upon us all. Valentines Day!!
Today over at Lexi's Creations we are starting a new challenge and the theme is 'LOVE'.
This can be for Valentines Day, or to show a friend your love, for your parents, your partners, 
or any one you love. You can interpret the challenge anyway you want.
For full details and to get some amazing inspiration from the Design Team call across to

Now onto my card....

This has got to be one of my simplest designs.....the card was made due to a request from my Grandson for his girlfriend....Whoo Hoo I hear you saying and yes we said the same thing. I had strict instructions, no fancy work, no flowers and definately nothing raised off the if I would lol!!

This was hard!
Then I saw the image designed by Lexi Lee for Fairy Dust Crafts, and knew exactly what I was going to do.

I printed the digi image called 'Heart on a Wire', available from Fairy Dust Crafts, onto white card, then using promarkers I coloured the main heart in bright red then added tons and tons of stickles....well he didn't say it couldn't glitter!!
I found a packet of heart stickers from Paperchase in my stash, perfect size, perfect colours and stuck them onto the little hearts that are on the 'wire'. It wasn't too raised, just a little.
This was beginning to be fun!
When it was all dry, I cut around the image in the shape of a fat heart and another one in white card using scallop scissors, I used chalk to shade the edge of the main heart and glued them both together. Then I have to confess I stuck it to the card base on sponge pads to raise it just a little bit, to give interest to the card, you understand, don't you!!

The blank ticket is originally from Raindrop Echo Designs, designed by Ann Vento, I blanked the middle out myself on the computer and added the text that my Grandson wanted on the card....

Now all I have to do is show him the card and hope it's simple enough!! Hope he like's it.

Thanks for looking and leaving me such wonderful comments.
Love and hugs
