Dream Valley - Valentines

Hi everyone, i'm back today with yet another Valentines card, this time for our new challenge over at Dream Valley.

This challenge is sponsored by ....

and the winner will receive 4 digi's of their choice.

Before i get onto my card  must tell you about the weekend i've had!  Yesterday as you know my printer broke, luckily it was just the power lead and I had a spare from my old printer.

This morning i got up and went down for a coffee, only to notice my kitchen ceiling bowing and dripping wet.... my en-suite has now flooded ...i'm so very fed up now of water!

We got that fixed and I decided to escape to my craft room (to take my mind off all the decorating we have to do now).

I was busily working away on this card when "THUMP" my lamp spontaneously snapped and the top half smacked me on the bloody noggin!!! I can tell you the air was most definitely blue!

I have been trying all aft to find somewhere to buy a new daylight lamp or at least a bulb but oh no...every one has sold out.

Wow ... what a weekend!

Any hoos, you didn't visit to hear my moans did you? On to my card..

This is a fab image from Meljens and trust me when I say it has been coloured in red and pink, yet without my trusty lamp the colours just don't show the same :-(

The papers are yet more freebies and I love them :-)

I used the negatives from my heart circle die cut to decorate the corners and the ribbon is from the Red mini kit for "The Ribbon Girl"

Had no time to decorate the inside i'm afraid, i might get round to it later though.

I hope you like it, thanks to those of you who have visited and left lovely comments lately, I promise I will get around to visiting you all soon.

Love and hugs

xx Cara xx
