Edited to say: Sorry I'm late posting this but my back went while I was at work yesterday and I could hardly move let alone sit at a computer. After some resting it is feeling better and , although painful, I can now move around again.

Thanks to everyone who joined in our birthday celebrations blog hop last week and congratulations to all the winners.

Here we are again with another challenge for you from Creative Inspirations. This fortnight we want to see your 'Valentine/Love' projects/cards so let's get in a romantic mood as Valentine's Day is only 2 weeks away. Our great sponsors for this challenge are Quixotic Paperie and Di's Digis who are offering some fab prizes.

I decided not to go for the traditional Valentine colours of red or pink for my card but to try something a bit different. I think the yellow, green and white work rather well don't you? The DT were lucky enough to be given one of Di's Digis to play with so I chose this one which is called 'A Time To Celebrate'. These cute bears certainly look as if they are celebrating in style with their champagne. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and added Diamond Glaze to their eyes, the champagne and a few dewdrops on the rose. As you can see I have found a use for the little calenders that I haven't used by highlighting the day on the relevant page. I punched and coloured a heart and popped it behind the image. The flowers and leaves have also been punched out. Have you spotted the yellow ribbon down the left hand side? A few pearls were added to finish the card. Hope you like this one, thanks for looking.
