Blue Valentine {no matter what}

I escaped up the the shed again tonight as hubby was on phase II of his shredding campaign.. dont think my ears could take another evening of the rattling and groaning of that machine {why did I buy him one} !!

Blue Valentine… made with UIU (use it up) in mind and colours I dont normally go for

  • Pearly Lace from The Ribbon Reel
  • Blue Cherry Blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Gold Doily from Crafty Helen 🙂

Although there is not a lot of product in this card it took me aaaages to finish because it was using a colour i;d not normally grab and also blue is not usually a colour you can get a valentine card in (thats my excuse) 😉
