Crafting with Kerry xx

Only got around to finishing my card yesterday that I did with Kerry over at A girl who just loves to craft!! We had a right laugh and I did have a few moans but Kerry has a list of essentials to purchase for next week so will let her off!!

Then last night Summer came to stay and boy what an handful she started to crawl last week so it was very hectic and with a 5.30am alarm call from her this morning very tiring but then I wouldn't change her for the world!!!

Here is my card I have inked the edges of the card and papers which are DCWV "Madly in Love" then I found the gorgeous velvet ribbon which matches perfectly (in stash from a toiletry gift never throw anything away!)

The Tilda is Kerry's and is just perfect for Valentines with the gorgeous love jumper and I have coloured her with Kerry's Promarkers which was a first as I have copics but I loved them and so I now have another bad habit!!!

The gorgeous Love Hearts are from a new Nellie C that I had at Christmas and it's so pretty and added with Marianne flowers looks fab.

The sentiments are Magnolia and a bargain find in the sale over at the Glitter Pot and are just perfect.

Added black stickles around all the edges and some small retro punched flowers.

The brads in the middle of the large flowers are from the papermania range which allows you to punch the centre to match the papers and gives a lovely finishing touch with the little bits of bling.

They are certainly hard work when babies start moving around but it's a lovely excuse not to do any house work when you have them.
A lovely card Chanelle I wonder who it is for!
