Love Changes Everything

Going all lovey-dovey here today as it's Valentine's this week.  I recently won a giveaway at Tiddly Inks, so I've got some awesome new images to play with. 
For my CAS card I have used 'Changing Chameleon'. He's sooo cute and comes with a few accessories too.  I wanted a sentiment to reflect the image and decided on 'Love Changes Everything'.  He's got his little tongue wrapped around a heart, which is changing his colour to red.

Aaargh, I made a huge boo-boo!

Well I have just done something really stupid.  I thought I was in comments awaiting moderation, but I was in published comments.  So I've just managed to click 'Remove Content' for all my comments on page one. 
I am so annoyed with myself right now as this cannot be undone 😭.
Apologies to everyone who has left me some love.

You're Pretty Grate

I'm a real sucker for Power Poppy images, so when Marcella released a set of 6 Valentine's images for a bargain price I had to grab them! You can get your own Va-Va-Valentines set here.
One of the images sprang out at me and I had a genius idea for how to use it.  Of course I had to squeeze in one more card before the challenge ended, so I've used another template from Page Maps.


Products used:

  • Cardstock
  • Designer paper
  • Cuttlebug acetate
  • Elizabeth Designs banner dies
  • Twine
  • Anita's outline stickers
  • Fiskars Shape Cutter and Circles template
  • X-Cut nesting circle dies
  • Mini Heart confetti (from Mini Wish on Etsy)
  • ProMarkers - Gold, Sunflower, Mustard, Cool Grey 1 & 2, Mulberry, Blue Pearl & Powder Blue


When I saw this image I knew it had to be a shaker. I coloured the hearts to match the confetti and think it works perfectly
