Feelin' the love?

Hi blogworld,

So are you all geared up for Valentines day then?  Must admit it's not a big deal in our house - 'im indoors always gets me flowers and we exchange cards, but there's no romantic dinner or night out or anything.  Can't remember that there ever was either, oh dear we do sound like a boring old married couple - ahh yes that's just what we are!!!

So anyway, the real reason for this post is the new challenge over at Divas by Design and the theme this week is, yes you've guessed it!, 'Love and Romance'.  

Our sponsor this week is:

and this is my card:

The arty farty:

And that's it folks! No image, no papers, no embellies - well apart from the gems!

I used:

Embossing folder, heart punch, a very old 'love' stamp (you may even remember it from last year's Valentines card!), bit of ribbon and a couple of gems.

I sort of run out of time with this one, and as I know hubby doesn't mind what sort of card he gets I figure he'll be happy!

You should really go see the cards my teamies have made - they are way better than mine!!

Apologies for lack of comments (again), unfortunately have got a lot on my mind at the moment and it's sort of making me mojo a bit hit and miss and I'm finding it a bit difficult to get the umph for blogging either.

SHMbO is being rather difficult about going to school and I'm still a bit unhappy with things are going this year, so we are off to see the headteacher tomorrow afternoon, hopefully we'll get things straightened out.  Then I should be happier and the old mojo will return!

Anyway, waffle, waffle, waffle!

Hope to see you joining in with the Divas and be back soon,

Hello Sarah once again I'm playing catch up over here - I never get around as much as I'd like to but like you say things just get in the way of blogging, anyhoos I've just had a scout around and caught up.
I just love reading your 'waffle' as you call it and the bed story from a couple of posts back cracked me up - please don't ever change!
Love the uptown girl card, fab images, I have a few and I love your simple card today too, it's really elegant and I love the embossing, makes cards more professional if you know what I mean?
Hope you get everything sorted out re school - I will be watching this space albeit a little late sometimes!
Hugs Laurie xx
