Eleanor & Pickles - Love Bugs.

Hi everyone,

hope that you're all ok and keeping warm and dry?  Also that you're not rushing around doing too much in the run up to Christmas.

Jamie would like to thank you all for the lovely comments you left for his card yesterday.  He's very proud of himself, but if he thinks he's taking over my craft room, then he's got another think coming!  Lol.

I've had a lot of fun with today's card, which features another new digi by Heather Valentin.  This beautiful digi is called Love Bugs and it's lovely to colour in.  It is ONLY available from Heather's Lacy Sunshine store, just the same as all her other lovely digis.  Please do not obtain them from elsewhere as no one else is authorised to sell or give them away other than Heather herself.

And here it is.  As I said...I had fun with this one!

Well, if you can't go all out for Valentine's Day, when can you?  :oD

The Eleanor & Pickles have been coloured using my promarkers (as always) and they are so lovely.  I decided to go for a softer than usual Valentine's look so opted for pinks rather than reds, though it would look equally as lovely in reds as well.  I've added just a little glitter to soften the heart.

The backing paper is from Bearly Mine (their papers are so lush) whose link is on the column on the right.

The pink card is Papermania Textured cardstock and I have also used silver mirri.

The dies I used were Spellbinders circles, scalloped circles, lables one and scalloped labels one.

The feathers, pins and heart shaped doily are from my stash and the gorgeous metal filigree corners are from Wild Orchid.  I feel another raid on their online store coming on shortly.  Their link is also over on the right.  The heart charm is from Ebay.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:  where the theme is 'Anything Goes.'

Hope you like it as this really is a fab digi.

Take care everyone & happy crafting!
