VALENTINE HEARTS, AND A SKETCH AT LESS IS MORE ......

Hi lovely bloggers, it's lovely to "see" you, and many thanks for popping by. 
*****************
My card today is for week 52 at LESS IS MORE
where the challenge is to work with a sketch. Do pop over and visit the wonderful Mandi and Chrissie for full details, and some inspirational cards.  
Huge congratulations to Mandi and Chrissie, on the 1st Anniversary of LESS IS MORE - thank you for all the wonderful challenges you have given us.
************
As it is almost Valentine's Day, I have used lots of hearts, and lots of red! Hubby and I don't send Valentine's cards any more - well after 46 years of wedded bliss, it seems kind of unnecessary!! (I would love to know what you think about that)!!!!!!!!
*********
   
Recipe:-

Cream base card.
Tiny Hearts - Woodware cartridge punch. Attached with 3-d pads.
Paper used for the hearts - SU "Love Letter" designer paper set, plus 3 hearts cut from red glitter card.
Red card layer - SU Real Red.
Sentiment - PSX (from 1999, so probably retired), inked with ColorBox Pigment Brush Pad - Scarlet, and heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Berry Red Aurora  EP.
*********
I am also entering my card into Pixie's Crafty Snippets #5 
************
Have a great week - Love to all ~

Lovely card, Sylvia. All those different hearts are really effective. Rachel.

Shirley Deatcher said...

What a beautiful card ! I'm loving your 'less is more' designs, they are so effective. The little hearts really are adorable ! You are very talented.

Re cards for hubby - I don't think there are 'rules'... it's what works for you both ! Have a great evening !

Suze Bain said...

Wow, 46 years Sylvia, that's fabulous. Have to say I'm not very romantic and don't really see the point in Valentine's day - I'm sure there will be plenty who disagree with me though! Lol. Beautiful card, the papers are lovely. xx

This is so gorgeous! Wow! M x

Kathleen said...

A wonderful card Sylvia, love the way you have used different formats for the heart and the odd glitter one, love it.

43 years for us in April and we haven't sent Valentine cards since the first year, or Anniversary cards, apart from 25th and 40th, my Hubby thinks all cards are a waste of money but I do get a Birthday card, under protest.

I love all your hearts, Sylvia, it's a very classy Valentine's card.
Our Neighbours have been married for 51 years and they re-use their birthday and Anniversary cards every year which I think is really funny, we always have a laugh about it. You don't need cards to tell someone you care but it's whatever works for you I think.
Enjoy your week.
Hugs Lisax

Hello my friend,
is very very beautiful.
inspires romanticism ....genial.
hugs and blessings.

Susan said...

Sylvia, you've made a beautiful card. Congrats on 46 years together...and I wanted to add....my hubby and I have been married for 31 years and we rarely give each other gifts. Seems like nowadays people just get what they want and don't have to wait for an "occasion". I still give him a card though...and sometimes he slips into my craft room and makes me a card...mind you it's never fancy...hand drawn hearts, etc...but I know he made it with love...and that's what really counts!

Shirley Deatcher said...

I've already commented on your beautiful heart card love it... wanted to say Congratulations on your new DT post at 'For your Inspiration', well-deserved ! Have a great day !

Gillian said...

Aw I love this. So cute

RCosca said...
