Can’t think of a title :D!

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend and the snow is all gone where you are if you’re in the UK. Thankfully all our snow has disappeared and I can get out again, my car was well and truly iced onto the drive and completely unmoveable! This is a card I made a while back for the competition in PCE and I thought I would show it today. I love the paper, it’s so bright and cheerful and I think it’s an October Afternoon design from a few months back. I cut out one of the swirls from the reverse side of the paper and punched the piece on the right hand side with an EK success scallop punch. The heart shapes are cut out with nestabilities dies and I made a lollipop flower just showing under the bow. All finished off with large and medium corner rounder punches, a gingham bow, some doodling and doodlebug candy dots. TFL and have a good day.

Chris, your card is adorable, trendy and fun! I am glad your weather has improved; ours too. Our snow is nearly gone and it was so warm today, I ran out without a jacket. I probably should have had one, but I was just running in & out of stores, not standing outside for any length of time.

Thank you for leaving me comments too. You are so kind and thoughtful!
