MAWTT: 14th February DT Card

Good morning and "Happy Valentine's Day" - hope you got lots of romantic gifts and cards.

Mark bought me a box of Thornton's chocs and a fabulous card!

Today is my last day at work as break up for half term today - WOOHOO! I certainly need a break.

So onto this week's challenge at Moving Along With The Times.

This week it's the turn of Team B and it's my turn to host the challenge and I have chosen the theme:


Very appropriate as today is Valentine's Day! However you can create anything to do with love, be it for an Anniversary, wedding, or just because.

Here's my card:
