Valentine Edwin

Morning everyone, hope you are all well.
A big welcome and thank you to my new followers-I really appreciate you taking the time to call and love visiting you back!

Does anyone know what happened to January?
Oh, well, won't be long 'til the days are a bit longer and a bit brighter.
And hopefully my pics will be loads better!!

So, here we are in February and it's time for another challenge over at
 Fairytale Challenge Blog and this time the theme is "LOVE LOVE LOVE"!
You can make cards, scrapbook pages, bookmarks, anything you like as long
as it fits the challenge theme.
You have 2 weeks to play and as usual, there'll be a fab prize on offer!
Sadly, this is my last challenge as part of the GDT, i've had a fab time and send big thanks
 to Bianca& the team for having me - it's been great and now i'll be able to enter the challenges lol!
Don't forget to check out the team's fab creations - you're sure to be inspired!

So, here's another Valentine's, this one for a friend to give to his other half!
 I'm quite pleased with how it turned out so hope they like it, too!
I started with a 6 x 6 card blank, layered up red card and spotty paper, then wrapped black check and red ribbon round a strip of card with a punched edge. The little heart charm is actually a punched heart using a tiny scrap of red card! The flourish is a die cut, the flowers are handmade and the leafs are punched!
 Poor Edwin hasn't been inked before and is coloured with promarkers and the balloon
 is actually shiny although you
 can't really tell what with the bad light and my poor photography skills lol!!
Would love to know what you think!
Thanks for looking and have a lovely day.
