Greg's Valentine Card

Woweee, the weather men got it right and it's been a few days of wild weather!  Snow last night (not enough for a snowman!), lashing rain nearly all day and now gale force winds ripping round the house. An evening for NOT taking Ruby for a walk and definitely getting my cosy PJs on!






So at long last and several failed attempts (I don't really do 'romantic' cards) this is going to be Greggy's Valentine card (...Brenda, MY giraffe card looked pants!)

I've used these bees from an old There She Goes set ... popped one dude up on dimensionals, gave him some cool shades and a dickey bow and added some glitter to his wings.  Coloured with promarkers.  Sentiment set from Paper Smooches.  Heart charm from stash.  Couldn't get my crappy bow tied right, but hey, Greg will never notice ;)

What? You didn't like your giraffe? The one you used recently was really adorable. Just the same, this card is very sweet and very cute. I love the bee in shades and bow tie. :-) I had to laugh about Greg not noticing about the twine. I know what you mean. Ha

Rained all afternoon and the snow started a bit over an hour ago. It's turning everything white. Of course, it didn't start until almost dark so I can't watch it. I'm sure the wet roads will turn to ice. Travelling will be bad tomorrow. I'll be home, for sure.
