Love Is In The Air @ Diva's

Good Morning to you all - yet another post from me - I could get used to this card a day posting - NOT!
Although I will be back with another card tomorrow for my usual Thursday MAWTT DT blog!

Today I'm here with my very first official DT card for the very lovely
I am over the moon to have joined such a fabulously talented group of girls so much so that I couldn't resist joining in last week when it wasn't my team's turn!
And my oh my did you lot just love the anything goes theme last week! I'm glad I don't have t pick a winner as we had sooooooo many gorgeous creations!
This week it IS my teams turn and we have a fantastically topical theme
I can't get that song out of my head now
I've used the gorgeous little Valentino from Magnolia - how cute is he? It normally takes me at least a year to ink up a new Maggie stamp so this is super quick for me! I painted a die cut chipboard heart with TH crackle glaze and was chuffed to bits it actually worked! The papers are a mix, some from BG Little Black Dress and the music paper was from my stash, the flowers are WOC.

We have a brilliant sponsor this week

Emma has a fab sale on at the minute you should all find time to check it out - trust me!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this weeks challenge, what you can win and some amazing inspiration from the Diva's.

Thank you all for looking, commenting and just being there!

Love 'n' Hugs
Laurie xx
