A last minute Valentines

Today being Monday and Valentines day being Thursday, my son asked me this morning to make a valentines for him to give to his partner....not bad for yur kids I hear you say...but tues and thurs I have my hospital treatment and weds I have an appointment with the specialist, where it will be decided if the treatment is doing any good and whether I should continue with it ...so not really as much time as you would think...

I sat and I thought about what I was going to make for a little time and chose to make the card in purple as I know its Beckys favourite colour...I then thought about the lattice frames I had made and decided to use one of them, afterall they were made with Valentines in mind...

Once I had decided the colour and the frame the rest fell into place in my mind and I just had to construct it....I also knew not to make too 'frilly' a card because although feminine enough Becky can be a bit of a tomboy at times, and a real 'maiden' at others so the card needed to be as contradictory as herself...

I found the image in the valentines sale from the silhouette store, and have been looking for something to use it with...the card I cut it out of came from graphtec uk as a thank you gift that was given to several cammie users who had entered a competition held by uk silhouette cameo friends on facebook where we all help each other and have such a laugh..http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/369015176444918/  why not come and join us and have fun too...Dot loves to meet new people and it doesnt matter where you live in the world your welcome...

The phrase 'Lovers you' is one that my son constantly uses! he rarely says love you to anyone but always says Lovers you...so a natural one to use for a card from him! easy !! I used the font 'someone like you' which to some can be a little untidy but it is so close to my sons writting its  unreal! I used a sakura gold metallic gel pen in my silhouette pen holder. I drew an oval around the writing and then cut. I used a chalk ink to colour the outside of the oval.

Thank you for looking
:love debby xx
