Love Letter Blog Hop


Welcome to the Love Letter Blog Hop. This is your weekend hop round all the lovely blogs of the members of Michelle Perketts group over at Paper Craft Planet. We were asked to create using one of Michelle's images and to include a love letter. To be honest as yet i haven't written my love letter and I'm not sure it's something i would share if i had but maybe later today i will have completed that part of the task. In the mean time here is my card and alongside it my attempt at a box which turned out only big enough for a heart for the one that i love :)




This is my card created using Michelle's Love Letter Fairy and included in my card layout is a Valentine template care of my mum found here a perfect combination so thanks to Michelle and Mum :) I used a patchwork piece of scrapbook paper which i folded back on itself to make the corners and embellished with glittered red peel offs and gold hearts and mounted the main feature with foam pads, can't do flat cards lol.




Here is my little Valentine box made from a free magazine template, will try and include a link when i find one. Came out rather small but relatively easy to make and i embellished with some hearts tape, just like sellotape but clear and with lots of hearts all over and the same glittery peel offs and then i put two gold coloured flat back stones on the heart openings. Quite a sweet little box i guess.




I hope you are enjoying your Valentine Hop and now you should be onto the next stop which is Micki or if you just happened to stop by here today and want to start from the beginning you can start here. Remember 'All you need is love, la la la la la' sang in a beetleish tone lol...
