"My Valentine"

Hello Blog friends, snowed in again!!!!   The snow started this morning about 7am, has not stopped since.  The weather men are saying it will turn to rain by this evening, we will see.  
Thank you for taking time to visit, and for all your wonderful comments on my work.  My only hope is that someone, some where will get a little encouragement, from what they see, that would make me happy.

Because of the snow it meant that I had to stay in and "CRAFT" awful, I loved it.  There was a down side, I had one of those days that everything I thought I wanted to do did not work out as I imagined it would.   Never mind here is one that I did manage to complete.

Base card 5 x 7 White Centura Pearl from Crafter`s Companion
Pink card from "Pink Card" Box
Floral Card from a Tilda Paper Stack
Large Heart cut out using a Memory Box Die 
Small Heart,  Memory Box Precious Hearts Die
Organza Ribbon from my Ribbon Stash tied in a Triple Bow
Pearls from my stash

Have you seen all those wonderful new Dies from Spellbinders..................Oh! My! Goodness! what temptation.  I have so far resisted.   When you look at them very carefully there are a few that are really just up-grades of what they have already produced.  Oh! Yes! I know they are a bit more fancy, they will be better,  but do I really NEED any...........I am saving for going to Birmingham in November.   I know it is a long way off but there is bound to be lots more out by then, I am sure I have enough to keep me going till November.........I think!!!!!

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate you stopping to look

Patricia   xx

Think I might enter this to the In The Pink Challenge

  4. Very pretty card Patricia, love the beautiful bow. I know what you mean about the new dies - I like to see them in the flesh as so often I've been disappointed with the sizes. Carol x

  5. Hi Patricia, love your card, pretty in pink, my favourite colour. Really need to get some more girly papers to brighten up my cards. Know what you mean about the new dies, I feel that they seem to much the same as some I have. It's the embossing folder I find so interesting, may have to look intothem.

  6. Another lovely card Patricia. Hope your snow is beginning to move - ours is a bit less now but keeping fingers crossed that it doesn't freeze or it will be worse than the original snow!

  7. A really pretty card Patricia. Love the pretty floral paper. We had a lot of snow in the morning yesterday but then the rain came! Its sometimes hard to resist new dies when you see what someone had done with them when you are blog hopping. My downfall is Alison at The Great Leveller - she has cost me a fortune!! x

  8. Hi Patricia, such a pretty card..very feminine! Hope your snow clears soon, we had some heavy flakes yesterday but thankfully they turned to rain when they it the ground. Carole Z X

  9. Gorgeous Patricia, love that paper

    I must admit I don't have spellbinders but I do like to see your cards, I prefer mine to be plain dies to frame my stamps :) keep up the good work and stay warm
