An Alarming Valentine
Sometimes in magazines you see articles on 'ten minute cards'. This card is more like a ten hour card, taking into account the time it took to get my ideas together and then to make them work!
It all started with a challenge at Red Carpet Studio - create a project inspired by the morning. I played with a few ideas then settled on the rooster and the alarm clock. But then I had this old song ' I want to wake up with you..' (Boris Gardiner) going round in my head and decided to make it into a Valentine's card.
I really do think this is a card to give to someone you are already in a relationship with - if you gave it to the handsome guy at the office, he might be quite alarmed!
The papers I used are all from a magazine freebie pack . The rooster was a magazine freebie stamp too and I paper pieced it with two papers. I cut the clock, hearts and tags on the Silhouette Cameo.
As well as Red Carpet Studio, I'd also like to enter:
