Love Grows!

Good Afternoon  Blogging Friends, and I hope you are all well and enjoying your Saturday.
I work up this morning to a shaking of snow and it was very grey, but it's now lovely and bright and snow all gone, at my level anyway.

I've not been around to post for a couple of days but, I have tried to keep up with all of your Blogs, but please forgive if I've missed anyone out.  My engery levels have been low and we have been short staffed at work and there has been a lot of very ill clients which drains the remaining staff, so by the time I get home I'm whacked. I'm off for the weekend, thank goodness.

My card today;
and a closeup;
I've used a LOTV stamp and coloured with Promarkers, samped on to card cut with Sizzix Doily die, using also the Doily Border die,  First Edition Rose Garden papers, and Co-ordinations card. embellished with; Sizzix Hello Summer dies, and Xcut heart die, sentiment LOTV. Papermania gems, ribbon and button from my box, Glossy Accents on Wellie and Watering Can, Star Dust for a bit of sparkle.

Off now to do a bit of housework, happy crafting everyone
