Love is represented by the hearts and the air by the butterfly who flies in the air!!!! simples really!!
The papers and the butterfly are from the Candy Doodles CD
Its a bit warmer here today- just about freezing but so much better then the minus 8 we have been having, wasn't quite so cold this morning out with the dogs but must admit I did pop into Morrisons for a cuppa to heat me up before coming home

This is the sketch over at Allsorts this week and this is my take on the sketch

You have to use the sketch and either old stash or new stash so I went for old stash and found some of this yummy paper in the museum and a Lily of the Valley cake I've had for ages.
I am getting so fed up with this snow now and it looks like its here to stay for a long while- at least plenty nights crafting then as too cold to go anywhere.

Elvis Meets Cute Card Thursday

For the sketch over at Cute Card Thursday I decided to make a card with my favourite man ever on it.
Having gotten an Elvis calendar and huge book of photos of him for my Christmas and given that BBC2 on Saturday and Sunday night put on a documentary and concert of Elvis's both nights just especially for me I just had to finish off the holidays with a card dedicated to the most handsome man ever.
Hope everyone has good holidays and getting ready to start back work tomorrow- yuk

Get Funky

Hope everyone has recovered from Christmas and didn't overdo it at the Bells last night
It was lovely to see all your Christmas decorations for last months challenge.
This month the challenge is SPOTS and STRIPES
I made some calendars using my favourite spotty Funky Hand paper from the Now That's funky CD and used stripey paper from the same CD
there are lots of spots and stripes in the Funky Hand range so I can't wait to see what you make with this months challenge.
Check out the rest of the DT's fab work and if you're going out partying tonight then have lots of fun but no so much that you're hungover the next day
Happy New Year to all

just realised that I wrote this post thinking we were going live on the first but we didn't until the second- oh well... hope you didn't overdo it anyway and have a wonderful 2010
They also fit the Saturday Spotlight challenge of calendars so I will enter them for that challenge too
