Tatty Ted Valentine

A Tatty Ted valentine card for my Hubby. Once I had decided on the layout I put it together very quickly. Papers are from Craft Creations, corner is Marianne Creatables and I used a ready made Me to You topper which cost me the princely sum of 50p from Hobby Craft a few weeks ago. You wouldn't believe it but Hubby bought me one with a very similar image ( see below) looks like we are still on the same wavelength even afer 34 years of

I hope you all had a lovely Valentines day

I have entered the following challenges

A card I made a while ago using a Kenny K image, MS border punch and a Marianne die cut.Various flowers and a tag made with dies and punches. 
I've had a lazy day today, no cards made but I played about with my CraftRobo and cut some new designs you can see them here in a few days on some Birthday cards and a few Mothers Day cards. Tomorrow is my day off so I'll be enjoying some crafty time.

Thanks for popping in.
