Love is in the air

Today I want to share the card I made for my husband with you. We have been married for over 30 years now but I really like this image, just needed the right sentiment to reflect our actual ages!

Materials used:  
Lemon Shortbread – Kisses
X-Press It card (used to make an A5 card base)
Copic pens
black fine nib pen

The image and sentiment were printed as one image on the card and coloured with Copics. The edge was hand drawn with a black pen.

I wanted to keep the card CAS letting the image and sentiment take centre stage.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
