Charisma DT card- Love Is In The Air

Goodmorning all, I'm afraid this is a scheduled post from me as I'm hoping to be out running while both children are at nursery. The plan is to run 5k, grab a cuppa and perhaps chill out for a bit before the children need picking up, so fingers crossed the rain stays off, if not I'll just go on my treadmill.

Today we have a new challenge over at Charisma and this time it was my turn to choose the theme. Seeing as it's February I just had to have a love themed week so I called it

Love Is In The Air


Dream Valley- just for men
MAWTT- Layers
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge- With All my heart

Now you are never going to believe me when I say this but I actually made this card a couple of months ago. I know it's shocking, especially when I should've been busily making those all important Christmas cards. In fact I remember that day as if it was yesterday. Hubby was out with the lads in Edinburgh so I had planned an hour of crafting followed by a night of christmas present wrapping. I had Michael Buble's Christmas album blasting out my stereo and a lovely chilled bottle of rose wine just screaming to be you can't get better than that lol

I decided to use my favourite Forever Friends stamp and I have to confess it has been very very neglected. I really should hang my head in shame because it was my very first stamp that I bought and I remember being super excited and I couldn't get home quick enough to start colouring lol.

I had recently bought a few promarkers from the ice grey colour section and I was itching to try a monochrome card but seeing as it was for a love challenge I couldn't resist adding a bright red heart. I was amazed at how easily this card came together and I absolutely love how it has turned fact I may just keep it!

Please pop on over to Charisma and check out the fabulous prizes up for grabs and if you can leave some love on the dt's personnal blogs. I'm pretty sure they'd be delighted to hear from you.

So that's pretty much from me, so enjoy the rest of your day and if you can be one happy
