Crafty CardMakers 39.0 - Hearts

As we're fast approaching Valentine's day, the theme at Crafty Cardmakers this week is totally appropriate - it's Hearts!
Our team have come up with some excellent work this week ( they always do..!) so you really do need to pop over there for a shufti and maybe a little inspiration for your own Valentines card, which, of course, you can then enter into our challenge!

We're sponsored by The Stampman for this challenge who are offering a £10 voucher to use in their online store, shop or show!  They have a huge variety of products to suit all tastes including Hero Arts, Aspects of Design, Tim Holtz and Ranger and have also recently added some scrummy Prima papers to their range! 

So what have you got to lose? Make your Valentine happy with a card and spend a free £10.00 at The Stampman!  
Sounds good to me!

I wasn't going to join in this week as I don't really care for hearts as a motif but something made me change my mind (...who knows - I don't go there if I can help it...!) and I had the idea to make this card for my long-suffering Hubby who only ever gets jokey, sarky cards from me!

Now this is a very dangerous ploy on several levels because either:-
a) he'll think he has a terminal illness and no-one's telling him
b) he'll think I've run up a big craft bill somewhere
c) he'll think I want to run up a big craft bill somewhere
d) he'll get the wrong idea and get inappropriately amorous.......eeek!
Perhaps I won't give it to him after all....... LOL!

I'm also adding this to the following challenges:-
Fussy & Fancy - Valentine - no red or pink
Polka Doodles - with hearts
Raise the Bar -  hearts#
Tellen's Place - hearts
Secret Crafter - Valentine's
The Stamp Fairy - Lace and hearts but no pink or red!
Bunny Zoe's -  Love is in the air!
