Valentine card

Hello folks, well we're in Winter again, brrr! thank goodness for central heating.

Haven't got news as such, my son's illness has been bad in the last week so time has been spent with him.  I'm afraid to say both DH and I are getting too old for getting up a number of times a night and on call in the day as well. Oh! well there are MANY people in a worse state than us, so I mustn't grumble.

I was looking for something on the web tonight and came across my Ice Cream PersonalityHERE  I have to say it made me think.  The only one I can think maybe a tad wrong is the "one track mind", although as I write to say it's not me, I think again and maybe their right about that too!

You like to think of yourself as a fairly modest person. And it's true that you don't talk yourself up... but you're also pretty happy with who you are.
You are incredibly cautious. You rather miss out on something than make a mistake. No one would ever call you wild... but they would call you responsible.

You are a very open minded, liberal, and flexible person. You love many things. You tend to have tastes that range from down home to cosmopolitan.

You tend to have a one track mind. You prefer not to multitask.

You are a serious and contemplative person. You definitely do your own thing in life.


So onto doing my own thing LOL

Here is a card I did after getting the scrapbook kit This is Love by Dawn by Design at the Digichick.  I thought initially it would be too dark, but I love the effect and I am pleased with the overall card. The main card is printed and then the heart, leaf and flower are decoupaged in layers, the lace which I think is realistic is also printed.  I have been learning how to do shadows in PS and I think I am getting the hang of them with the help of Megan Turnidge at Scraporchard and her ready made "style" shadows, which I now understand and can do my own.  I'd better show it to you hadn't I?


Oh! yes, I did clean up the glitter LOL.

  6. Faith, I'm so sorry to hear that your son isn't well. Life never seems great after losing sleep either.
    I love the card - very romantic - and the lace is so lifelike.
    I've had to give myself a stern talking to and not allow myself to do the ice cream personality test!
    Take care, Vicky x
