Double the Love

Morning everyone, I hope you're all keeping fit and well and to those of you who aren't so good I hope you soon feel better. What a week I've had..... first off a poorly laptop (which I think hubby has finally managed to fix after having to take it all to bits) and two sessions of physio at the hospital, the second session was the first week of a gym ball group and I've been aching all over ever since - oh well only another four sessions to go!

I have managed to make a couple of valentine themed cards though and they were both very quick to make. On the first I used my NBUS Uniko stamp 'beautiful bloom 111' and as Santa didn't bring me a Misti for christmas the layers on the two flowers aren't stamped quite the same - but then flowers are all different aren't they! I fussy cut the flowers and cut hearts with Xcut heart nesting dies and also used the negative of a larger heart, layering them up and attaching them with sticky pads. The sentiment is also Uniko from the 'pure florals gerbera' set and I added a silver peel-off 'love' to the top heart.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Uniko challenge 'anything goes with an optional twist of love'
Country View challenge 'time challenge 30 minutes or under'
Time Out challenge 'inspired by words'
Allsorts challenge 'hearts and/or flowers'
Noor! Design challenge 'have a heart'
That's Crafty challenge 'I heart you'

My second card is a very CAS design using a fun Bugaboo image 'valentine bird' coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment is a Uniko stamp.

I shall enter this card in the following challenges

Passion For Promarkers ' I heart you'
Fab 'n' Funky challenge 'wild about you'
Art Impressions challenge 'lots of love'

Thanks for your vist today and if I haven't already caught up with you I shall be around to visit soon. Have a great weekend.
