My Valentine's Card

Good afternoon everyone.  My husband Peter has THE worst memory in history for remembering birthdays and anniversaries so there's NO WAY he's gonna remember Valentine's Day!!  Don't think I've had a card to mark the occasion for a few years now LOL!

I have found a way around that though, this is my card - from Peter ROFL!  I have also just downloaded this image from Karen's Doodles (link in sidebar) and don't want to part with it now - yes, a little selfish I know - but those hedgies are just too cute!!  I'm entering this into the following challenges:
Basic Grey - Animals
Bee Crafty - Romance
Creative Card Crew - Valentine's Card
Creative Craft Challenge - Valentine's Card
Dare U 2 Digi - Hearts/Valentine
Papertake Weekly - Love Actually

I knew I wanted to use this image and as soon as I saw this fab sketch from FS - PERFICK!!


Image - Karen's Doodles
Colouring Medium - watercolour pencils and copics
Papers - Basic Grey
Brown Cardstock - Sizzix
Punch - Martha Stewart
Ribbon - Stash
Sentiment - handwritten

I experimented a bit more with my pattered papers too and I'm really pleased with the result!!  I shall look forward to receiving it and act all surprised!! or, maybe I'll sign it with a question mark teeheehee!!!  No, I've actually shown him it already, and he's thanked me for saving him money LOL!  Maybe he'll put that towards a lovely bunch of flowers instead....... or a new big shot!

Thanks for stopping by my little haven!  Enjoy your day, hope you liked the card.
