IDIC - Love is in the Air and Blog Hop!!

Our challenge this week at I Did it Creations is 'Love is in the Air!'

This week, we are also hosting a fun blog hop!! You should have arrived from Debbie's blog. If not, make sure you start at the IDIC challenge blog!

For my projects this week, I used the Valentines image Pussy Cat Luv and non-valentine image Franny the Kitty, to show you that many of Robyn’s images are versatile and can be used for any special occasion!

For this card I've made a brayered background with Silkies paints and coloured the image with promarkers. The greeting is a stamp and the card candy is from craftwork cards. Gems are from stash and the greeting is a stamp. I think this would make a fab no-frills Valentines card for a male!

If you are looking for a letter, mine is the letter V
Please make sure you are keeping track of the letters as you hop along our chain, so you can unscramble them at the end for another chance to win a fab prize!


Next stop on your hop is the talented Georgia!
