Cute Romeo

This was the other card option for hubby's Valentines Day card which I chose not to use, so got to keep it for myself!  This one is more subtle than the other one although it still has a lot going on; I love the cute LOTV bear and enjoyed colouring him. I’m loving using my Grand Calibur and adding to me die cut haul but there is a never ending list I need; note I used need rather than want I’m definitely addicted! I got a little card making time yesterday as I had to go to work on Saturday which I don’t usually do and haven’t for a few years so that was a shock to the system; but I did actually quite enjoy it after the initial reluctance and I know I’m lucky that I have a job with so much uncertainty around these days.. I haven’t quite finished it yet' might get another half hour tonight  so the plan is to keep this short and sweet . I hope you get to have some crafting time to enjoy and have a great week. Thanks for visiting … hugs Andrea X
