Thank you all for visiting my blog it is lovely to get such a warm welcome back :), and welcome to Hazel my newest follower (waving madly).
Start of another week and I am off to walk Rosie dog and then we are off to work, did I ever mention that Rosie comes to work with me, she sits under my desk and hardly ever stirs, she is such a good dog. Before I go I would like to show you my husband's valentine card (don't worry he doesn't visit my blog so he will not see it before Friday).
This is a large box card about 8 x 9 inches and I made it about as fancy as I could get away with for a man and not look too over the top - I used some digi paper which I have had for ages from Pink Petticoat - For Him - I used Cheery Lynn heart die, and two Memory Box die for the hearts at the top and the row of hearts at the bottom. There is a secret message in the Magnolia tag at the top.
When opened it reveals a Thornton's Chocolate heart - if anyone has seen these chocolate hearts you will realise how big this card is. I made a box to hold the box which the chocolate comes in and decorated similar to the front - card is kept closed by a couple tiny magnets which I bought off ebay, they are really very, very strong but when sandwiched between card and paper they are just right for keeping boxes closed.
This is a side view showing the box I made to hold the chocolate.
This is the the chocolate heart box which started the whole card off
Hope you like my card and I hope David likes it too come Friday - he is taking me out for a scrummy meal and a bottle of my favourite drink (Prosecco), aren't I lucky :).
Hope you are all well and have a great Monday.
