Love is............... unconditional


Well, its the start of a new week, and we have snow again in our part of the country.  Only about 2-3 inches, but thats enough for me :) lol.

Now, I made this card........ just because.  I love this image, and every time I see it on anyones cards it just takes my breath away.  I was in a dither when I bought it, as I am a real doggy person, but I loved this cute kitten, so I guess I will have to go back and get the puppy as well! lol.

I hand-stitched the HOTP papers onto bazzill and normal cardstock, and then layered punches and nesties. It just looked a bit lacking in sparkle and I didnt want to overcrowd with flowers and leaves, so I threaded some green star beads onto the rose stems and twisted them into shape. 

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Mos Digital Pencil - Lots of Love
Totally Papercrafts - Friendship
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes + Flowers
Top Tip Tuesday - Girly

Flutterby Wednesdays - Anything Goes

Lovely colours - & your beads are amazing. Thought for a moment you might decide to add a cat to the menagerie but the fur might fly! Take care with the snow - we've just howling winds & rain, though it's calmed somewhat. You really made me smile with your comment re Debbi's candy - that was such a shock!

Such a beautiful card, Alison! I also love this image. In fact I love all Mo's images:) You chose great colors and and played so beautifully with. I love those star beads, ingenious idea. I also have that Fleur de Lys die and never know how to use it:)) It's either too small and wouldn't show or to big.
