Good morning all you lovely folk. Hope all is well with you and thank you so much for stopping by.
My throat is still not 100% but there's others worse off so shouldn't really grumble.
We did get snow on Thursday but in the afternoon. It rained really heavily then snowed so I'm surprised it settled but about an inch of it did.
Anyhoo, its time for House of Cards February Challenge and this months challenge is . . . . . .
Well, in February, its a good theme lol!! Hope you're going to pop and see what the rest of the DT have done and, even better, I hope you can join in.
Now, I am swearing you all to secrecy as this card is Mr Duck's Valentine card. I usually show him what card I'm putting on but obviously not today.
Hands up, it wasn't the swiftest of cards to make with the ribbon woven padded heart (done in a similar fashion to how I did this card here) and the channel set hand made roses (but I have invested in a 2nd set of SB Bitty Blossoms that were £6.00 new on eBay) but its the only Valentine card I make so it may as well be a good un lol!!!
White card (Lime Tree Crafts)
Red card (PMD)
Red 160gsm card/paper (the Range) for roses
SB Bitty Blossoms
SB Reflective Moment
Sissix Hearts dies
Embossilicious lattice embossing folder
Personal Impressions sentiment stamp
Memento Dew Drop Lady Bug ink
Black archival ink
Docrafts and Mei Flower satin ribbon
Sorry for the picture heavy post but I did love making this and quite a bit of love went into it (all together now. . . . . .ahhhhhhh!!!) Also, on the above photo, I did like the shadows on the embossing and bling (move over David Bailey hahaha!!!)
As you may be able to see on this shot, the top layer is one single piece of card, with just the heart cut out. I just embossed the top, then turned it around and embossed a smaller portion at the bottom, leaving a unembossed section that the sentiment tag sits on.
Well, fingers crossed that Mr D likes it in a couple of weeks.
Thanks for coming to visit. It was lovely to see some folk who haven't been by for a while and some new names too on my last post.
Also, I hope those of you who have pulled muscles and bumped heads and had slips in the snow are rested and better.
Would be fabulous if you get time to visit the House of Cards Challenge.
Keep toasty warm!

My little friend is called "Piggin Love". I have quite a collection of Piggins but only the special ones, like this limited edition, are worthy of my dusting time nowadays so the others are safely packed away for now. . . . . . . . . .this is one of my favourites. x
