All you need is Love!

Hi, and welcome!

I've been very remiss in not welcoming my new Followers......sorry......but I'm so glad you're here!

What an eventful and busy week.....and the weekend is goin' to be just as busy!
Oh, well.....onwards and upwards, as they say......always wondered who "they" are, lol.

There's another great challenge over at 

This week our theme is:


With February 14th approaching (or for any reason, really) we ask that your creations be themed on LOVE or VALENTINES. We are excited to welcome back our TWO sponsors for this week, Robyn's Fetish and Floppy Latte Designs! So we have two prize winners this challenge!

Floppy Lattes Digital Designs ::All Digital All The Time

One randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of five (5) digital images from  Robyn's Fetish ... and another randomly drawn winner will receive a prize of $10 to spend at the Floppy Latte Designs store.  Thank you both for your generous prizes!

The Hubster and I may have been married for almost 44 years.......I know!.......who'da thunk we'd have lasted this long...hahaaa!......and I was most definitely a child bride......but we still like to exchange Valentine cards and smoochie kisses, heehee.  The Hubster will be receiving this little creation, this year......

 Bright and cheerful, just like the Hubster!  This little fella is Elmer the Lovestruck Elephant from Floppy Latte.....cute, eh?
I cut a strip of bright yellow corrugated card and placed it with the pretty pink paper onto the card base.  A strip of green spotty paper anchors the two together, with a piece of red gingham ribbon for texture......
There is a remarkable likeness to the Hubster, least in the expression...hahaa!  Elmer is coloured up with .....wait for it.....COPICS!  Yep, thought I'd buy the two pinks shown here, just to see what all the fuss was about.....Verdict?  I want/need/have to have.....please send donations to my home address, lol......The image is layered onto a piece of green, textured card stock which has been cut with a Spellbinder's scalloped rectangle die....... 

I used a small piece of the corrugated card to back this fun sticker.........

I have quite a lot of this red, textured paper (from the Paper Shop) and used a little-used Sizzix die to cut the hearts.....a flat-backed pearl finishes it off, nicely..... 

A sweet little Valentne card for my lovely fella!

I'd love you to take a look at what my Teamies have come up with.....and you'll get to meet the newest member of our team....go see!

  7. Love that elephant! Donations? Let me know how that works for you ;)

  8. Just so dinky sweet, Anne-Marie!

    Have a great weekend honey!

  9. Very cute Anne-Marie. Gee, you must have been a child bride. I was 18 when I got married and it will be 38 years in May. For my card I used a clear stamp and some of the lines are missing so had to put them in by hand. I presume it's the same artist. Thinking of taking it back and seeing if they will swap it or maybe it's the whole batch! If so might have to buy the digi.

  10. Gorgeous card Anne-Marie, I like the sweet image, Thanks for joining in with us at Digi Haven, Good Luck.
