More than ice-cream?


Hope you're all having a nice day.  My darling children have been not so darling this morning so while they nap I've had a nice peaceful play with my crafty bits!

I've made my husbands valentines card today, which is extremely organised for me.  Let's hope he doesn't have have a sneak peek at my blog!  I can now put my efforts into winning our valentines present competition - which is to find each other the most rubbish gift to do with the city we live in for under a fiver.   Should be fun!

Anyway here's the card.  I jumped for joy when I saw this digi set (from Pollycraft) as it's so perfect for me; given my most favourite thing ever is ice-cream (hence the tub of half-baked on my blog where most people have a picture of their face!)

I wanted to do something a little bit different to the traditional valentines card, as my anniversary card last week was red, so when I found this piece of spotty paper left over from a card last year I though it was prefect!

I've also gone for a clean and simple look - more down to the fact that I had nothing to go on it and I've banned myself from buying anything from a craft store for February as I spent ridiculous amounts in January! Luckily I found this digi on the last day of January, and promptly clicked buy along with a few others!!   Let's see how far into February I get before I convince myself I NEED something!!

Anyway I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Pollycraft - Favourite Things - Ice-cream
The Pixie Cottage - Clean and Simple + Sketch
Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes
Catch the Bug - Colour Inspiration
Paper Sundaes - Valentines
Ladybug Challenge - He Love's Me, He Loves me Not
