Forget Love!

Well Valentines day over for another year, and I'm sure this will be the sentiment of many ... I know it would be my sister as although she has a partner of many years, though he keeps asking her to cut out the chocolate it falls on deaf ears. I can't see why chocolate is that wonderful, it tastes ok but give me migranes if I eats any amount and one square or continental and I get a headache so I usually take my chocolate with a couple of paracetamol.

Well I've had these sentiments sat on my desk for what seems like forever, I did buy them with my sister in mind but so far have only used one for her. I usually send her an odd card when she's been busy at work or a bit under the weather, I think it's much nicer than a text and she never answers he phone as she's usually out if not working or in bed as she's on night cover. 

Simon says has a theme 'What's love got to do with it?' and I was trying to decide how to interpret this theme, when I saw these sentiments and this one just jumped at me. Well what has love got to do with it when chocolates around, so I am entering that challenge if nothing else it might make the Simon says team smile. Oh and in case you don't fancy joining in there's a fab prize, $25 to spend and a load of fab goodies from CHA too.

Roses on paper have a colour theme of pink ,brown and cream, so as these are the colours I've used even though my cream is just really accents I think I can enter their challenge. It feels good to have managed to squeeze in some crafting, whilst Andrew is set up on play station conquering different civilisations or something like that. Today he plans some school work so I might not be as lucky.

I love promarkers also had a colour theme of pink and brown, and they also had a layout sketch. I must admit I'm not sure I like this layout for the card I've done very much, I think I might have to try it again with more papers but I just didn't want to cover up the lovely pearl card, my own fault really.

Catch the Bug have a theme of 'go for gold' or a card of encouragement, in honour of the olympics. Now I'm not sure my card would go down well with any nutritionalists as a card of encouragement or anyone trying to loose weight but for anyone who has had a broken heart I'm sure it would encourage them to smile again, if only for a minute. Is this pushing the boundries too much or does it mean I really have got a slanted way of looking at life? I'm not sure I want to know the answer. Well here is my card and well done for getting this far, as a reward go get some chocolate!
