Love in in the air....

Its nearly Valentines Day, and this week we have something very speshal for you! This week we have teamed up with the great scrapping girls over on the Speshal Dares we hope to combine the world of scrapping and cardmaking in a lovey dovey way. This week we dare you, and each other to still make a card but with a scrapping style!

I struggled this week as my laptop has gone for repair (or replacement hopefully, he is very poorly) and I keep all my fonts, pictures everything on. It also means I can sort the main elements ready to do when Baby J has trundled off to bed. Alas this week that is not possible hence me sat card making at gone midnight as I am using W's computer and have all my stuff over the living room floor hehehe!

With You



This week my base was a 5x5 ready made card blank which i covered with the scrummy Cherry Drops paper from Blonde Moments. I then printed a yummy picture of my beloved (without his sunglasses on which in itself is a miracle!)and mounted that onto an offcut of the same paper. Using the lyrics from "With You" by Jessica Simpson and white Royal and Langbickel rubons in Ian and Faith alphabets I created the message on the front. I also highlighted the words "Baby" and "you" with Paper Cellar Foam stickers. The word "beautiful" from the lyrics was done with the white rubons and an offcut of the cherry drops paper. I surrounded the word "you" with a white metal label holder from maya road and attached it with thin pink ribbon. I also dotted a heart and I *HEART* U stickers on the card but not sure where they are from *oops*

Finally using a white pen I drew a heart and wrote the date the photo was taken along the side.


Why not have a go at making a scrapbook inspired card for a loved one this week? Dont forget to check out Daring Card Makers and the Speshal Dares to see what both design teams made.

Big loves and kisses this week **MWAH!**

Lovely card - really like those Blonde Moments papers. Lol at you managing to find a pic of OH without the glasses on - I see they didn't go far though; they're on top of his head. :)
