Feel the 'Luuurve'.....

we'd like you to put some LOVE into your cards this week. Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement or simply to say "I love You" - there are lots of opportunities to get lovey-dovey and slushy, so get out all the romantic stash out and show us what you can do. After all, you know what they say;"All you need is Love, Love, Love".


For the little extra I used my favorite style at the mo, sewing together scraps of paper. It's amazing how many scraps we all accumulate isn't it?I used small scraps of 7 Gypsies papers, some covered chipboard letters(queen & co) and a hand cut chipboard heart covered in BG paper. Working in a school it's amazing how much chipboard I can find from packaging of A4 lined paper! I have tons of it! Must make a few mini books for pressies!
This next card is for a teacher I have worked with for quite a few years who is retiring this week. I had a moment of madness the other week while watching the QVC craft day(blush!) I bought the special value! I wanted the stamps in the pack, but it came with 100 sheets of HOTP papers so I used some for this card. The paper is really thin so I had to be careful stitching it! The papers are not really my style but they are ideal for the lady this card is for.
The last card is another one for the 'Luurve' theme that I made for a joke to send to Hubs. It looks quite big in the piccie but is only about 10 x 10cm and made entirely from scraps. I just love those Lynx adverts and thought this would make him smile.
Thanks for the great little extra Daring Cardmakers! You have inspired me as always!!
