Cherish - FFFC #180 "Fussy and Fancy'


I'm back!  After a much needed break!  I really really appreciated that downtime.

I've now got a card to show you for our new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.  Our theme for the next two weeks is 'Fussy and Fancy.'   Please pop over to the Challenge Blog to get complete details on the challenge and to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

Seeing that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, this is the card I came up with.

This is what inside the card looks like.

A closer look at the image I'm featuring.

The image is called 'Meant to Be' and it's available from Lili of the Valley as both digital stamp and rubber stamp.

You do such beautiful work. Glad you had a break and now you can make us happy by posting. Your colouring is always so terrific. You certainly know how to embellish so well. That's my downfall.
