Love Is In The Air @ MAWTT

Happy Valentines Day to you all, please consider this post as my valentine's to everyone who didn't get one! That will be just me then!! Oh well I suppose there is still time LOL
I'm back today to spread a little L-O-V-E at


and the lovely Claire has given us the perfect theme for today

Love Is In The Air

I had a lot of fun making this little card

How cute is Tilda's little bottom? Though it does look like she has a bit of nappy rash maybe I was a bit heavy handed with the blush!  The stamp is from the new 2013 Love collection (I don't think I've used any of the 2012 Love collection I bought last year yet!!) 
The chipboard love is from a pack from WRM and as usual most of the flowers come from WOC 

The papers I printed out myself (had to get a new printer which turned into a nightmare as it wasn't compatible with my computer so then the whole thing had to be upgraded! You wouldn't believe how many hundreds of £'s this card cost me in the end!!!) Anyway back to the papers....they are Vintage Peddler from our fabulous new sponsor at MAWTT

I can't tell you how much I love these papers, they sand away for a distressed look perfectly and now (I have an all singing and dancing laser printer) I will be printing papers left right and centre! Still have a small forest's worth in my craft room to get through first.

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and lots of scrummy inspiration from my team mates.

Thank you for visiting today
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

What a super card Laurie & it's lovely to see a change from the usual red/pink numbers! I don't know if it's bad luck or good, your compatibility problems with the printer/computer but it sounds as though you are now the proud owner of a rather nifty new system! Jx

PS You and me both are waiting on cards, post has been so it's not looking good.

Judith said...

This one really made me smile - what a fab image and I love the colour scheme, you coloured this beautifully - but a phrase came to mind and I've no idea why! - face like a smacked bottom - not the face on this one- the smacked bottom lololol - I know - I've been told I need my head looking at, I think its getting worse!! - have a great weekend hugs Judith x

Hi Laurie, hope you are ok xx No I didn't get a card either but didn't expect one..I think Den thinks I see enough of them and he says bought ones are rubbish anyway. I did however get a lovely new top and also went out for a meal last night :) The Laptop is still very sick, so I am on Dens at present.
Love the card, I so love brown and that image is so cute.
have a great weekend.
Hugs Mau xx
