Show a little love

Morning girls
Gosh it's a cold one out there.  I've just been out to the bin  and as well as still being dark it's freezing!!!
So here I am cuppa in hand to warm me up to show you my first card of the day.
It's a new challenge on Polka Doodles and this week the lovely Lana has chosen our theme.


Now, although I've used hearts on me card it's not your typical valentine card.  

As you can see I've not used the traditional reds and pinks but have instead gone for these gorgeous blue papers from the Sundae of Seasons CD.  You'll find them in the spring collection.
I then matted a beautiful heart doiley given to me by Elaine me blogging buddy and cut the other heart and the little fence with my cricut.  Next came the lovely Piper from the Pretty Sweet CD, isn't she pretty coloured with the blue tones.  Love how she's sitting on the fence thinking of her sweetheart lol.  
Can you see the gorgeous leaves on my hand made flower?  They're polyurethane and just tinged with blue and no more. I've had them for ever in me stash and couldn't bring myself to use them as the little bead shop I bought them from in Turkey isn't there now (sob) but they do set the flower off beautifully.
So there's my effort girls, do pop over to the challenge blog to see some more great creations from my teamies and don't forget we'd love you to play along
