Love is in the air

Lots of DT work to do so its a quick post from me with a couple of anniversary cards to share. I'll hopefully have more time for commenting soon. Thanks to those of you have left me comments lately. I see that I have lost 3 followers since I drew my candy. Aren't people funny, I never stop following anyone. Anyway onto my cards. The first one is another of those gorgeous LOTV images with 2 of their sentiments. I went with a bright colour scheme for a change. Papers are Henbury Lane with an off piece of heart paper. All coloured with Promarkers with Sakura gold and white souffle pens for accents. Love Grows has been coloured with Broken China distress ink ad gold pen. I didn't have any red roses so I coloured some white ones from Wild Orchid with a red Promarker and added punched fern leaves and pearls.

Challenges:
ABC Sketch and N is for Nesties (4 on this card)
Lili of the Valley Romance
By the cute and girly Red is all around us
Crafty Creations My love is like a red, red rose
CES Red and romance

The second card is one I made for Lynsey, whose anniversary was on Thursday. I posted it first class on Tuesday and wasn't pleased that it didn't arrive until Friday. Isn't that bad, within the same county. I even took it to the Post Office as I was pretty sure it would be a large letter, which of course it was. The image is from Wild Rose, papers are Prima and Laura Ashley. The border punch is an MS one I bought in America. I haven't seen that one for sale here.
Challenges:
Cupcake Old Macdonald had a farm
Simon Says Love is in the air
Sir Stampalot All Creatures great and small
Crafty Purple Frog Valentines or Love
Crafty Calendar Love

Have a great weekend everyone. We're off to the theatre tonight for a meal and a show, Hairspray.
