Love is in the air, or at least on the card

Wow 2 posts in one night, well it took me a week to find the camera charger, hence the delay in posting my cards over the last week. This card is the 2nd card I made for my OH for Valentines. The first one I gave to him, just to tell him how I much I love him, but forgot to take a picture of it. This card was a simple but effective card, and as for some reason everycard I make him is black adn red, I decided to keep this card a nice pale shade of pink, with the bold red heart placed with 3d foam pads to give it some depth.

My Friend Anna's 30th

Unfortunately I couldn't make Anna's party, so I wanted to make sure that I made her a card to remember. The one thing I will never forget about our friendship is the excitement over Sophie Kinsella's shopoholic book series, so this Penny Black stamp was a perfect choice for me. I

have coloured her in with Copic markers and added some glossy accents on her bag and her earings to give her a bit of sparkle.

She has been cut out and stuck on some nestability oval frames (both plain and scalloped). The background is some lovely daisy embossed card, which I have created using my new daisy embossing folder in my bug. The 30 and border on the left have been my first creations with my new cricut expression machine. And then to finish some ribbon, gems and flowers for that finishing touch.
