Good morning everyone! The sun is shining here in Norfolk and it feels good to be alive. It was my birthday yesterday and I had such a lovely day with my family and had so many lovely messages from all my new crafting friends,it really made my day even better,so thank you to you all.

Well it's a new month and that means there is a new challenge starting over at Gruffies and Guests challenge blog. The theme this month is " love is in the air" and our sponsor for this one is " Dawn till dusk craft supplies" who are giving a £10 voucher for this months winning entry so it's well worth popping over and entering your creation for a chance to win

I decided for this challenge I would design a card that wasn't the usual red hearts type and do something different. So for my DT card this month I went with one of my favourite (and oh how long the list of favourites are) house mouse images. I know,I know,but I can't help it,I just love them and make no apologies for this obsession.
These  two characters dressed up as Bee's just stole my heart, so I thought they would be perfect as a Valentine card. I love how dramatic the black and yellow are together.

I used my usual 8x8 card and cut a piece of yellow card to fit.
Then I added the black card and embossed it using  the A4 Embossalicious Argyle folder from crafters companion.
I then layered the image on to the same yellow and black card. 
Then I typed the words I wanted in a font I liked and printed it out. For the larger yellow layer at the back I used spellbinders Butterflies circles and for the smaller yellow layer I used one of the Stately circles dies ,again from spellbinders. The black and centre layers were Xcut scalloped circles. 

I hope you like it, I love it and will be saving it to give to Hubby on Valentines day. I hope it has inspired you to try something different from the norm,happy crafting to you all. 

I have entered this into the Just for fun challenge
