Lost my va va voom !!!!

I have had a quite week , I seem to have lost my crafty inspiration but after a visit to a very nice craft shop today in Stubbington and a rather large spend on some lovely things I didn't need but just had to have !!! Lol I am feeling a little more inspired and I can now feel my creativity returning, simply amazing what a crafty spend up can do for ones motivation !!
Well I don't have anything new to show you as I was so busy out spending ( purely for therapeutic reasons of course!!) so I though I would share with you this funky gardening topper I made a little while ago, to get you in the mood for spring, and just to let you know I am still around.

Bags of Love !!!

The snow is still falling and its still freezing !!! never the less I was up early today and I have made a Valentines card for my friends son Rowland to give his wife Tina it's their first Valentines day as a married couple and I just know they have "bags of love" to give each other !!!
I made the card by cutting a raspberry coloured handbag shaped card blank using one of my own design dies , I also used the die to cut a front for the card in raspberry sorbert flitter glitter card and BasicGrey raspberry cream paper.
I also used a Bo Bunny brad , May arts sheer polka dot ribbon, and Prima hydrangea flowers the sentiments are from the K&Co smitten range.
I hope you like it
