Valentine's Day at The Squirrel and The Fox

Hello Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox and this time our theme is

VALENTINE'S DAY

My hubby AJ and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, and it's just as well, for I am scheduled to be at a work conference for the whole of next week. It's bad enough having to go, but it would be a lot worse if I was meant to be fine dining or on a romantic trip with my husband instead!

Our Challenge this fortnight is sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and I used the cute little digi "Hog Wild Over You" for my creation:


I struggled with this card for a while, and then stumbled across some old blue lace that belonged to my grandmother, layered it over the background paper, and it all just came together. Gotta love it when that happens. :) I also used my brand new ribbon border die from Die-Namics. The papers are Bo-Bunny 'Crazy Love Fudge and Flowers' and the card-stock and pearl stick-ons were from my stash.

Please visit The Squirrel and The Fox and see what my fabulous team-mates have created.

If you do celebrate Valentine's Day, I hope you have a great one.

Entered into the following challenges:
Card Making Mamas - Valentine's
Delicious Doodles - All Loved Up
Fussy n Fancy Friday Challenges - With All My Heart
Moving along with the times - Cute Critters
4 Crafty Chicks - Valentine's

Until next time,
Tracey
