Love is in the air

Over at Divas by Design and generally in blogland if all the Valentines cards I've seen are anything to go by!  I think there must be a little hint out there that Valentines is on the way!

So hello blogworld,

How do you feel about making one more card to celebrate love then?  If you do fancy making one more, why not and then pop it in the challenge over at the Divas!  There is a fab prize on offer from out sponsor this week who is:

My teamies have made some wonderful cards for this challenge, and this is my contribution to the general feeling of luuurve!

Front shot:
 Side view:

I used:
Pollycraft digi image: 'I only have eyes for you' - coloured with my Promarkers.  Then cut out and popped onto foam squares for dimension, I drew the string of the balloon back in by hand.
The stamp is ages old and no longer in it's packet so I don't know who it's by.
Card blank cut out with my largest Go-Kreate die.

I couldn't decide which angle I preferred on this card - so you're getting both shots!  Now do you remember how I told you I'm rubbish at cutting out?  Yes, well here is a brilliant example of it.  This image is supposed to have an extra pair of eyes on stalks coming out of his head - not on my monster he doesn't I performed an unscheduled operation (along with much swearing) and chopped them off!!  Poor monster!  

This card is for hubby and I've just got to think of something witty to put inside now - suggestions anyone?   Normally I would do something a bit more traditional, but I had no ideas this year and this is the result!

Hope to see you over at the Divas,

Tatty bye for now,

What a fun card, Sarah! Love this cute little monster image and he looks just wonderful with his googly eyes - maybe it was to his benefit that you chopped his eyes off?!! Love the simplicity of your layout, definitely makes the image pop. I'm sure hubby will love it! Thanks for the lovely comment, Lisa x
