Okay, so long story, and apologies to those who have already seen this card and commented on it but it DOES actually fit into this week's challenge and Pauline says I can enter it anyway (thank you Pauline ;oD) so.... here it is AGAIN! I have actually added some gorgeous sugar-y glitter to the lettering in a manly blue...

Can't wait for next week's challenge. I've got my pens and pencils standing by...

Right! After my near miss last week - again with the "Duhhhhh" - I'm back in the groove and have made a Valentine card for my hubby. He's a keen allotmenteer ("All for one and one for all"; swish, swish, clang, clang etc etc) and we grow a lot of peas but never get to COOK a lot for some reason!? They just taste SO good straight from the pod...slurp!!!

Anway, who could resist this cute little guy, asleep in his pea pod? I coloured the image with my Copics and glossed the peas with Glossy Accents.

I matted and layered with a variety of papers I had in my off-cut box and some gorgeous card from American Crafts and called it job done. The sentiment on the outside of the card is from a fab set by Clearly Besotted and the one on the inside is by Paper Smooches. They just seemed to fit perfectly.

Here's the inside

Hope you like it.

There's still time for you to enter this week's challenge, though you'll have to get a move on as there are only two days left ;oD. Go on, you know you want to....

Well, apparently (thanks for the headsup Pauline) I can still enter this card for the current challenge and, actually, when I look at it, it is pretty masculine so you're not going're going to see it again further up because I've entered it into the Masculine Challenge at HMFMC...

As ever, I used my Copic Markers and Prisma Pencils to colour my image. The stamp is from Stampendous.

Have a great week all. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next House Mouse challenge is.
