My Hubby's Valentine card

I'm feeling so much better and recovering really well from my surgery now and it's lovely to have some time to craft when I don't feel guilty..! LOL!

It's a box-card (or frame-card depending on where you learned it) and I've used my distress inks, Brilliance inkpads and some heart stamps to make the pattern on the base card.

I've used a little heart-shaped box that my gorgeous lickle granddaughter Ada bought for me with choccies in last year. I've adhered it into the inside and will fill it with home-made choccie sweeties tonight (sshhh...! Don't tell Nic!).






I had horrendous trouble trying to make this card as Nic was up and down every couple of minutes to see if I was okay (...such a sweetie!) so I had to keep whipping it under my worktop so he wouldn't see it!  Then it was almost impossible to photo as the Mirri was a nightmare!  But I got there in the end...!

Hope he likes it!
Hugs

  2. It's unusual for me to make anything without colouring an image on it with my Copics but I've been selling my Ciao's in order to buy Sketches and am still missing some vital colours.

    Thank you for your lovely comment - it's very much appreciated.

  6. Eiglas - you have a wonderful project going on here- and your hubby will love it! I just wanted to let you know the Link back to Craft Your Passion is not working and I hope you can fix that before the drawing! (There is a URL typed out but no link.) I will check back before the challenge closes.

    1. Thank you so much Anita and Ginny - I've not long come out of hosp after a fairly major surgery and am so happy to be crafting again after a bit of a slow year due to time-constraints which have now lifted.

    1. Hi Claire Hunni!
      Thank you for liking Nic's card - I was a bit limited this year because I've sold all my Copic Ciaos and have only managed to replace about half with my Sketches so my colouring has been a bit impacted!
      Feeeling so much better and improve each day!
