LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED ...
NOTE: Firstly, just a quick note on comment word verification I have had switched on for a few weeks. I know it has seriously irritaded some of you, but since it has been switched on I don't get any more rude comments from non bloggers whose advertising everything you can imagine in the sex world. So, the good news is I have switched it off again and lets hold thumbs the spams stop. I will still moderate the comments before they are published.
The Design Team, over at If the Shoe fits, had a recipe challenge to work with this week, which is:
  • Ribbon
  • Hearts
  • 3 Eyelets

Its actually great to have a recipe as inspiration. So this is what a conjoured up. All the patterned papers are Basic Grey. The brown stickers are from Creative Memories and the eyelets and ribbon from my personal stash. I think that the stronger colours will make this card with hearts also suitable for a man, perhaps for Valentines coming up.

  20. Net jy wat nie rooi nie maar die gryse so kunstig gebruik en dit vir Valetyn. Dit is pragtig...waarom moet rooi in elk geval die liefde terrein so domineer.
