It was a Very Happy Valentines Day

Hello Dear Blog readers, I hope this finds you well and enjoying a nice weekend even though the wind has been howling and it's raining yet again!

Yesterday was St. Valentines Day and oh my goodness what a lovely day I had ...Justin and I had a lovely meal courtesy of M&S and their fabulous Dine In selection , I don't know how they do it for the money and it sure was a bit of a bun-fight in there to get the best dishes !

I dressed our dinner table with jam jars decorated with doilies and die cut hearts tied on with bakers twine , i popped little tea lights inside and along with some heart shaped table confetti it looked very pretty indeed.

Anyway, on to the card ...

Having made several commissioned cards for the chaps in work I wanted something different for Justin . I deliberated over the flowers , too girly ? But then I thought what the heck it's a Valentines card and it's all about the romance right !

I used Real Red cardstock and the stripy paper is from the Fresh Prints stack available in the Spring Summer Mini Catalogue , I love the selection of prints in that set ! I die cut flowers and leaves using the Sizzlet Floral Fusions and Little Leaves dies and cut the banner using the Banners Framelits.
The sentiment and Eiffel Tower were from the Follow Your Heart stamp set. The die cut large heart is cut from my all time favourite Glimmer Paper in Silver.

Finally I decorated the inside with FREE Banner Blast stamps and matching punch which you can get as part of Sale A Bration by spending £45 before March 31st.

Don't forget to let me know if you'd like to to take part in my Virtual Hostess Club starting in March , I have a few places left and you can still join us :)

Have a Happy weekend.

Nicola xx
