Good morning fellow bloggers I hope this dull, damp and miserable morning finds you all well and if you're only half as cheerful as I am today you'll be OK!
First I would like to thank you all for the comments you left, I've never had so many and you all make my day - everyday! And I'm so very grateful to those of you that follow me - I've started to amass some blog candy ready for when I hit a certain number.
I've been busily beavering away making 75 menu's, 150 place cards and wrapping 75 gifts with curly ribbon (it wouldn't have been so bad if I started sooner - but I was too busy blogging!!) ready for Saturday evening, and I finished last night with enough time to make a card using my favourite 'Tilda's' for the challenge over at Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with an option of ribbons.
Magnolia-licious have a great 'Recipe' challenge for February - its very girly and pretty with 'Hearts, Pink, Silver & White' It was difficult to photograph with the silver reflecting everywhere but at least you can see which bits are silver!
Magnolia Down Under want to see some 'Love' this week.
Cute Card Thursday have asked for "Hearts & Flowers' this week and this has plenty of both! I can't believe I actually used one of my precious crystal flowers for this card
This is my 2nd card this fortnight that fits into Totally Tilda 'Lots of Hearts' challenge and All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge 'Queen of Hearts'.
7 Kids College Fund want 'I Heart You' and Fab 'n' Funky want to see 'Tempting Texture' on your cards. Over at Stamptacular Sunday 'Hearts Gone Wild' is what is required his week and Bunny Zoes Crafts still have "Love Is in the Air' and Pink Elephant are still looking for someone to 'Be My Valentine'Lets Lets Ink It Up have a 'Romance/Valentine' theme this month.
The stamp is from Magnolia's new You're So Special collection, the flowers along with the lace & seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts and my stash, the sentiment is a rub on from Melissa Francis (it probably is 1 of a million LOL) I used 'Nesties' hearts, a cuttlebug embossing folder and 2 Martha Stewart edge punchers
Thank you for looking Laurie x
