Love Bugs

I just wanted to share my little valentines makes.. They were my little gifts to the boys.

I used my nesties, red card, white card a scrapbooking pen and a few love bugs that i bought from Sainsburys. There was 10 in the net for 99p. So a bargain and they taste yummy !!!
I also made some little matching cards. But used a wooden heart that i had coloured with my promarkers and covered with glossy accents. But i used the same circles as i did for the love bugs. They were built up then placed onto a c6 scalloped card

OSAAT 'Digi or dont' challenge #101

I must say that this week has been one i have been glad to say goodbye too !.. For the last 8 days i have been a poorly choccy :O( . What with an ear infection which meant that i couldnt even stand up, let alone i wasn't able to craft :O( or eat not even a little piece of chocolate ... Oh dear i have felt sorry for myself.  Local takeaways have loved me this week though :O)
Anyway on Saturday i managed to get an emergency appointment and i have antibiotics :O) Its amazing how much better i feel already.

So then now my only casualty is my poor DT  card for  OSAAT this week. Its not 100 % finished... But ...its nearly there ;O)

This week the theme is 'digi or dont'. Meaning use a digi or dont use one at all.
I worked with a set by Stitchy..A digi image and gooorgeous digi papers. You can get bunny blu set here  A fantastic set of 4 papers and a cuuute bunny image.
Heres my DT  card for this week

Well thats my this week card. Please pop by the challenge blog and you will be able to see lots of gorgeous inspirational cards.. Oooh and you can meet the other half of our new DT also ;O)  Don't forget to leave them some love.

OSSAT #99 'With Love'

Brrrrrrrrrrrr  Good Morning from a very white and cold part of UK.  Yes we were also effected by the snow that was forecast to sweep most of England over the weekend. It started here about 3pm and was still snowing just after midnight..Lets hope that its milder today so that we can all get back to normal as quickly as possible.
The buses here stopped at 8.30 pm as the roads were just too dangerous for the drivers. Meaning son #2 had to walk home just over 1 mile. Whilst son #1 was in the next town over an hours drive away !! Yes thankfully they made it back safe and sound all be it, 4 hours after they left there lol.. Hope everyone is staying safe and warm xx

Anyway on to my post for today... With just 9 days left until Valentines day. Over at One Stitch At A Time our theme is 'With Love'  Now you can interpret that any way you wish.
The sponsor of this challenge is

With 3 sets of die choice.

For this challenge i worked with an image by Sue from Beary Dust. I chose Claudia who is available to purchase here.
Heres my card.

The flower was a gift received from my CCW  teamie Nora

A gorgeous image that i coloured with pro markers, stickles and glossy accents.
I use a doily that i had received in a christmas package from my OSAAT teamie Judy
The DP is basic grey with co ordinates card backing my image.
The sentiment was from a tulip die cut sheet.

Dont forget to stop by the challenge blog and share some love.
