Love is in the air!

Hope this finds everyone happy and warm! It's soooo chilly and bitter cold outside that I couldn't feel the ends of my fingers after being out earlier today - that's after wearing gloves too.  True to forecast the temperature is definitely sliding down .....brrrrr. 

Here's something to warm your little hearts, two Valentines Day cards - one vintage style, the other in a lovely cosy red colour.

Thought I'd make a slimline card which is a change for me, vintage style too.  Here I've softened the red of Valentines with vintage lace and a beautifully embellished 3D tag along with some Wild Orchid Crafts roses.  Buttons finish the vintage look nicely.

This 5" x 7" card has a red linen texture base with dusky pink and funky hearts mats on which I've placed 2 shiny gold heart corner peeloffs.  Funky L.O.V.E stencil-effect chipboard square toppers are surrounded by pretty Papermania paper and fabric flowers with glitter and brad centres.

I've just heard snow is forecast to return Friday - I'm off to place an online food order and get ready to bake cookies and comfort food in preparation for the weekend.  Snow outside = me inside!

Keep popping in,
