We want you to show Charisma some LOVE.....

Hi there, this week at Charisma it's my turn to set the challenge and I have chosen
so lets see all your Love related creations. You have plenty of scope with this one from Marriage Anniversary, Engagement, Valentines and loads more.
As always we have fabulous prizes up for grabs and don't forget our Top Three and of course the special Facebook prize too.... 

My DT inspiration for you this week is a Wedding card. I made it for my Nephew and his Wife who were married last Saturday. I used Me To You glittered papers, LOTV image, Marianne Creatables dies and the flowers and metal corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The pleated ribbon was bought in Devon when I was visiting my Sister -in - Law, wish I had bought a lot more of it now I love it to bits. I also made a box which matched the card but I was so busy with the card I forgot to photograph the

Our Charisma Gals have once again excelled themselves and have some really beautiful creations to share with you. Looking forward to visiting your blogs this week, I have a feeling I'm going to have a really tough time picking my Top Three...

Hope you enjoy my challenge!!

 I treated myself to a couple of LOTV Christmas stamps this week and made this card yesterday. It's called Icing the Cake, I think she's adorable and a little bit different from the usual Christmas images I'll be using this one a lot I think.
The paper was in a stack free with a Mag a few weeks ago I think it's HOTP.
I've used Marianne Creatable dies for the Pionsettia and the Doily.
The Holly is a Martha Stewart punch I got in Glasgow last week and it was half price, couldn't believe my 
The sentiment is Cuddly Buddly, pearls and large brad from Wild Orchid Crafts and the mount is Nestie Labels 2 . Ribbon and star charm from my stash.


 Just thought I'd share this little card with you all. Hubby and I were at a Wedding reception last night and the card I had made got damaged beyond repair and I had no time to make another. So I decided to customize the John Lewis Gift Voucher we had as a present. I used LOTV cute squares and mounted it onto Silver Mirri card, added a Marianne Creatables heart and ribbon to finish it off. It looked okay and saved the day for me.

 Thanks for popping in, have a good week.
