Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #15

The challenge this week over on SCSC is the theme of 'Hearts' set my DT member Mandy.

I've been putting off and putting off the Valentine's cards, as I really struggle with them except with mine for Steve, I just feel they are something very personal and before I made my own cards I always struggled to find the right card for Steve. It maybe just me, a real romantic when it comes to Valentine's Day, but I know there are many that don't take it quite so seriously or even bother with it at all. Guess I'm just a soppy so and

Anyway getting on, this is a Valiversary card as it's a valentines and anniversary card in one. I make two of these every year for my godson's parents.

The image is part of the Valentine Cuties by the talented Sally-Ann over on Grab-a-doodle-do, coloured the kitty with my copics and added a touch of sakura stardust pink to the outlines of the hearts and on the heart of the necklace. Embossed and cut out the two hearts using the Romance Keepsake Board, and mounted the cut-out kitty on to them. The flowers are from my crafting stash and I've sewn a heart button onto the centre of each. The sentiment was done on the PC. Added two pink gem hearts to two corners. All the papers used are some of the free papers in the latest issue of Simply Cards & Papercrafts.

Hope to try and get another card done later today. Hope everyone has a lovely day and a good weekend.
