Lots of Love


Long time no speak! I'm 34 weeks now & it has gone so fast! I don't feel prepared at all, I finish work this week though so hopefully with a bit of extra time on my hands I can start preparing for baby & visit my craft room a little more often!

I only seem to make cards specifically for an occasion these days & this one is no exception - it's a valentine (as if you hadn't guessed!) for my lovely, but rather stressed, OH. He's under a lot of pressure at work at the moment & it doesn't help having a hormonal witch to cope with too!! (yes, that would be me!!) So this is my card to demonstrate that despite everything I love him loads...

I had a completely different idea for this card when I first started, can you guess what it was? I sort of imagined my two wee Hanglars as peas in a pod & scoured the internet looking for pea-related sentiments...

Finally settling for 'You Make Me Hap-pea...' I then embarked on my search for the perfect PPs in my stash... only to find... zip, nada...a big fat NOTHING apart from some very boring christmas paper in a shade vaguely relating to the colour I'd used on my image...

SO (deep breath) after much thought & over a couple of nights I FINALLY produced this... & yes, the paper piecing did take ages!!!!

A few challenges this week fit the theme of my card & I would like to enter it for

Cupcake Craft Challenge
- Seeing Red
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Hearts gone wild!
Papertake weekly challenge - Have a Heart

Thank you so much for looking & hopefully I'll be back soon with another creation
