Best Move Ever ...

.... Hello! It is absolutely gorgeous here today - the sun's shining, blue skies and no wind to speak of.  However, according to the weather boffins, it's all change tomorrow. And where am I? Playing in my favourite room!! I've a clean, simple Valentine card for my wonderful hubby, Jonathan.  I'm perfectly safe sharing it here today, as he's not going to see it before Friday. Here's the card:


Stamps: Lil' Inkers - It's Today, Right?, Sassy Pants; Sugar Pea Designs - Caring Hearts
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Poppy Parade; Delicata - Silvery Shimmer
Dies: Poppy Stamps - Heart Stack
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo; Silver Holographic Heart Mirri Card

I'm submitting this card to CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#356 (those colours are just fab), CAS on Friday - CASOF#173 (where the theme is LOVE), and Allsorts Challenge - ASC#558 (where we need to add at least one heart).


I shared another card with this die yesterday, it's such a lovely die and I've had fun playing with it. This time I used the inlaid die technique, so I've still got some bits spare 😊 I cut the die out in white, red, peachy pink and silver.  Then I put some tape behind the open space and started putting back the die cut pieces.  I used silver for the frame and filled in with the other colours.  I finished the front by added a simple sentiment in bold red and layered the panel on some silver heart holographic card (I've had this in my stash for years).  On the inside I cut another mat of the silver holographic card and on the white panel added a fun sentiment from Lil' Inkers - I think Jonathan will appreciate it!


I'm sure that you're aware that Lil' Inkers is closing its doors soon.  I have several of the coffee theme sets and dies, as well as several of the sassy sentiments sets and some wonderful die sets.  I'd like to thank Laura for her wonderful designs and wish her every success for the future. 

That's all for today - I think I'm going to try and take advantage of this wonderful weather and go for a walk.  See you soon.
