Love is in the air...

Well, it is for me anyway :D Ryan asked me to make his girlfriend Rebecca a Valentine's card which I'm not sure is a good thing for him or not. I hope she doesn't mind. I know he's not a mushy person and is totally allergic to the 'L' word. God help any girl that tells him she loves really is the beginning of the end of the relationship if she uses the 'L'word. Pierce and I were on holiday in Dubai a few years ago. Ryan phoned us one night and he told Pierce that his girlfriend at the time had just told him she loved him....he broke up with her not long after! So when making his card I knew it had to be as unloving and romantic for him but have a hint of romance for her. I saw this card here and thought it would keep both of them happy!
I kept it pretty close though added another row of hearts and wanted to have a single row of hearts all the same colour. And of course I can't make a card these days without a bit of stitching!

I also glittered up the middle heart :D The heart is from a set from Papertrey Ink and the sentiment is one of Elzybell's new releases.

I also managed to make another Nikki sample card.

I wish I had a coat like that when I was expecting!
I think I'll manage another sample tonight then I've got to hit the ironing...the clothes are starting to spill into the kitchen from the utility room and Pierce hinted this morning that he had no t-shirts! I usually do the ironing on a Sunday while watching Dancing on Ice but since it's Valentine's Day I might just curl up on the couch and watch it with Pierce instead :D
Hope you're having a good weekend.
Catch ya later x
