A Card For Your Love




Card, buttons and glue - all you need to make a simple card for your love. I had fun playing around with a few different arrangements but decided in the end that the simple, off-white heart shape was my favourite. I like the way it turned out. I will give it to my love on Thursday.

***************************************************

Thank you for all your very kind comments lately - they really do make my day. I haven't had much time to visit your blogs this week but I will get around to it, I promise. Every spare moment I have right now is spent frantically crocheting for Operation Finish Baby Blanket. It will be finished, but it will be close. As usual. And hello there new followers! It's lovely to have you here and you are very welcome.

I think you are reading my mind or have a spy camera in my home. I just made a love heart card for MadDad and the boys!

I love your cards too - sure they will be received with love
- they are very beautiful buttons - funny how sometimes it's the simplest, everyday things that are particularly attractive when we take time to look carefully.
Enjoy Valentines day!
Emma.

We are very excited. The baby is definitely going to love the blanket and actually need it in present conditions! You will have to take photos of it in situ ;) xxxx

Absolutely gorgeous cards, Gillian! I love them all but yes, the ivory pearl buttons against the white card is my favourite too. E x

Very pretty. No cards here for Valentine's Day, we don't celebrate it, but I love to see what everyone else gives and receives. You must show us your baby blanket, I'm sure it'll be very well received in the weather we're experiencing just now, all babies need to be cosy.

Those are very cute. I like simple designs made of things I have on hand.

What a lovely card...and thanks for the reminder! I know it's everywhere at the mo but somehow it hadn't registered that I should make a card...we don't got overboard but a handmade card is special. Looking forward to seeing your blanket when it's finished! Rachel x
