Sugar Nellie Valentine

Hi all

Well, after not posting my Sugar Bowl challenge entry in time for the last challenge, I've made sure I won't miss it this time. It's done and dusted in plenty of time.

The theme is love and romance for Valentines Day. And as my 12 year old son Jordan wanted a card for his girlfriend, Cathy....and I know she doesn't read my blog, this one is from him, to her for that special day, ahhhhh.
It's based on the idea of sending love letters, or in the case of my son, secret love notes passed in the classroom, hehe...

I used Daisy Bucket papers which I absolutely love, and these particular ones have the love theme, so are very apt.... This is quite a simple card, not that much going on, but lo and behold, it hides a little secret.......

A secret little love note (well it will be a note when Jordan has written on it), just tucked behind the picture. I'm sure you can imagine any twelve year old boy may want to hide his feelings towards a girl, and not have them spilling everywhere for all to see. And when I showed him this he was well impressed. Well, in fact the words were, "oh, cool". I guess that says it all.... As the papers are doublesided, I cut the heart from the reverse side of one of them, and stuck it onto a piece of card, along with a circle of text from another paper. I added a Prima flower with a heart brad through the centre, and some tiny sparkling crystals.

I decorated the inside to match, again keeping it simple. The images are coloured with Copic's of course.

I thought I might make a little gift box of heart shaped chocolates to match. He'll be all set then. I hope when Valentines day finally arrives, she is suitably impressed.....

Happy Crafting.
