Pink Love

Hi there!
Well It's Friday evening...again!! These weeks are going no slower than last year are they!
How are we all?...Well.... I hope and judging by your blogs you have all been very busy. Such a talented bunch you all are, there sure is some inspiration to be why does my mind go blank when I get in the Craft room?

My share for you is very girlie and full of love.......

The base card was printed with the pink hearts on my computer and then I added the With Love die (Crafters Companion) twice, one a bit deeper pink to make a bit of  a shadow. I like the font on this die. The tulip is in the same slightly darker pink.(Joy/Noor design)...I think.
All made from snippets so will hopefully whip to the playground for some fresh air!

Nothing exciting lined up for this about you? Hope it's a good one whatever you do. Lets hope we can have a dry one for a change here....its been wet every weekend since the middle of last November.....much to hubby's annoyance as it means he can't get any outside jobs done!.......and thus I don't get any crafting done either.

Short and sweet tonight.......phew I hear you sigh!!

Take care.........see you next week if someone doesn't pinch it in the meantime   :)

Crafty hugs

  9. Ooohhhh..I'm smitten with your pretty-in-pink card, Carole! That tulip, especially, has captured my heart! Gorgeous! We're having a 'crazy weather' day here: gusty winds and blowing snow (not much accumulating). This will add extra polish up the already-icy sidewalks and roads. According to the forecast, we're supposed to see 15C on Tuesday...WOW! Wishing you a marvelous and, hopefully, dry, weekend, filled with plenty of crafting time!

  14. I just had to pop by and say hello! The comments you have left on my blog are so kind, thank you!
    Your card is lovely not much evidence of a "blank mind" but I know what you mean ... sometimes when I have time to craft I don't have any ideas and when I've no time to craft my head is buzzing with ideas!
    Have a great week.

  15. Fresh air?!! It certainly is fresh today. Don't think I didn't see your wobbly legs in the Pancake Race earlier either . . . I know Brenda exchanged a hot toddy for one of your delicious pancakes.

    Terrific looking card by the way! xxx
