I'm all heart (and flowers)!

Hi all,
I know yesterday I said I would try not to talk about our weather, well today it was 42 degrees. Aaagh! Martha and I spent a lot of time in a shopping centre as it was air conditioned and we don't have it all through our house so the house was like an oven. We have a portable AC unit which is in Martha's room, so tonight we moved Daisy in there as well so at least they can be cool. There's a bushfire at our local National Park. Luckily it is under control, but we have been advised to keep doors and windows shut to avoid the smoke.

Well as it is Tuesday, we have another challenge at Creative Craft. We would love to see hearts and flowers on your cards - so valentines, anniversary, birthdays, anything goes reallyas long as it has a heart and a flower! This week we are sponsored by

who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their store.

For my card, I found some great templates I won a while ago and used them for the card blank, which has been inked with Victorian Velvet distress inks. I decided to make an easel card and found a tutorial that included lacing your card together and thought I would have a go. The image is Milkshake by Kenny K and the paper is by Dovecraft. Check out the makes by my teamies on the blog.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - valentines/love

Meljens - Out your heart on it

Creative Inspirations - Valentines/love

Creative Cowgirls - Love is in the air

Oh was an adorable card, Nikbee. Love the easel shape, the DP and the beautifully colored image. I am so sorry that you are experiencing such hot weather. We are bracing for a terrible storm in the eastern US. It will bring over a foot of snow, ice, and high winds! I will send you some snow! Thanks for joining us at The Creative Cowgirls this week.
