Hello Everyone,

I'm struggling a little this week and have little time having spent most of it at Addenbrookes Hospital.  I am pleased to say that the kidney transplant for my brother in law went extremely well and hopefully he will be home on Tuesday and make visiting a little easier as the journey is taking it's toll.  Heather, (the donor), went home yesterday and was looking really well.  I'm happy the operation is behind us now, it's been a long journey for sure and now time for them both to recover and in Tim's case, to start to enjoy life and food once again!

I'm sharing my DT card for Live and Love Crafts and I have used papers from Pion Design's To My Valentine collection.

I have used a new stencil from Dutch Doobadoo due out on 1st February.  Also new on my card is the Vintage Flourish Cupid die, isn't it cute :)

I added 20mm red roses to the centre of a bark heart an added red cord.

Just to the right of the Pion Design image is one of Live and Love Crafts new paperclips

I used the sending love heart die and added pearl dots using the Dutch Doobadoo pearl pen in black.  The gorgeous butterflies are from the To My Valentine Borders sheet.

 I cut a tag in matching paper and added a cord bow and a beautiful embellishment.

Hugs Tracy x
