Cute Card Thursday Challenge #99 - In the Name of Love

Good day friends... and a wonderful Saturday to you all.  It's been a busy morning for me but I'm home now and enjoying making a card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week.  They've challenged us to make a "love" themed card. It doesn't have to be a valentines card, but does need to have a love them... here's my interpretation for you to view.
I used a light green cardstock for the base of my card and matted a deep purple onto that. The gorgeous glitter, striped heart design paper is from Upikit International and is double sided. I purchased this from our local Scrapbook shop in Durbanville. The flowers are new which I purchased today from Charmaine's shop. Aren't they just too beautiful? I popped around today just to buy a Mother's Day Stamp and came out with a packet full of goodies again.  Oh my... this hobby is going to bankrupt me ;)!!!  But... at least I am selling some cards, thanks to my faithful friends who always support me... love you girls!!!  The sentiment is acrylic and matched this card perfectly.  The image is Thinking of You, an Elisabeth Bell creation from Ladybug and Friends. She's new and I am so pleased to share her with you. She's such a dainty, elegant little doll!  The heart button is a gift from my dear friend Jacque in the USA. Aren't they just gorgeous? Miss you and hope to hear from you soon.  Thanks so much for this wonderful gift which I received today.

That's it for now... back to the craft desk for me... hope you're also having as much fun as I am.  Until later... hugs Sharon x
