Alternative Valentine

Hello everyone! It's the weekend!

I have to say I have been a little absent on the blogging front lately... no real reason apart from I've still got a bit of a crafty block... my mojo really has left the building! I have managed to come up with a little DT card for  today's new challenge at Digi Designs Challenge Blog... our theme this fortnight is VALENTINE'S!

I've not gone with the traditional red, but have used more an alternative colour scheme and sentiment. The card is made using two wonderful digi images from Di's Digi Downloads... you can check out all of her fabulous designs over on her site! Lots of digi's to chose from for Valentine's and much more! I've also used scraps from My Minds Eye 'Bloom & Grow' paper pack... I always end up with bits so when I saw a fab card by Faye HERE I thought what a great idea to use up paper scraps, thanks for the inspiration Faye! Colouring is done with Promarkers & Flexmarkers, and the lovely little sentiment was from the net... I wish I could remember where I got it from so I could credit the person...

Our sponsor this fortnight is Joanna Sheen who is offering a gift voucher to use in her onling shop... and with so many goodies to choose from and free postage this is a fab prize! But you've got to be in it to win it so to speak! Also, if you make something using one of Di's digis you could be in with a chance of winning two images of your choice from Di's store! Hope you can join us ;)

Well, have a lovely weekend!
