Mad about you


I wanted to enter the CD Sunday challenge because I've got quite a few CDs now but don't get much use out of them. The theme is "A la Mode" and I thought I'd find something appropriate on the MCS fashion-themed CD "Dressing up Dolly Divas".  What I found there was this NSR image of a top hat and that made me think 'mad hatter' and then, with a valentines theme, 'mad about you'.  The patterned papers are from MCS "A very important date." The main one was black and white and I coloured it with Tim Holtz ink. I traced and cut out the heart, dry embossed it and added the words. I cut the front of a square card so there was about a third left and trimmed the back flap around the hat to make it a shaped card.



I often have problems getting a good photo of my cards because of  lack of light. Today, however, my problem was that my little boy ( in his pyjamas) wanted to be in the photo and then ran off with the card!

I'd like to enter this for:
CD Sunday A La Mode
Rainbow Lady Have a Heart
Winter Wonderland  No Square or rectangle cards
Here Come the Boys Favourite Song (Mad about you by Hooverphonic)
Craft Ann's Love is in the air.
