So how did you spend your Valentine's Day? I spent mine with my fabulous crafting buddy Julie! It certainly wasn't romantic but with hubby away it was certainly the (next) best thing! Thank you for coming to play, Julie!
I was less than successful, however with my card crafting. I tried to make two cards and was not particularly happy with either. Julie, on the other hand, made a fabulous card which will probably appear on her blog sometime soon.
My card below has changed a bit since Julie's departure. I was trying to use "left over" scraps for Creative Inspirations which were spotted and striped for Kaboodle but I don't actually like the stripes and the spots together in this card as there is too little definition between the two.
Mojo Monday and the DT inspiration for it was brilliant but what came out on my card was not quite what I had in mind and then right at the last minute I realised I hadn't left room for a sentiment so I had to try and remove the image and part of the background and put it on another card. I actually like this one a little better and it does now have a sentiment. It is for my nephew who will be 8 and I just couldn't not say Happy Birthday on the front! I love the Hanglar image though! My nephew has just started to fish with his Dad.
