I got asked, last week, to make a special Valentines card but as the recipient sometimes visits this blog I couldn't post it until now. I have to say that's it's been a while since I've made a card I've been this pleased with. I really love it and I didn't get to look at it and stroke nearly long enough before I had to put in the post :) The papers, hearts and flourish are from a kit called The Very Thought of You from the Sweet Shoppe. The colours are kind of non traditional for Valentines but perfect for shabby chic style which I love. And for once all my stiching was as perfect as I would want it to be.
