Draw Back Your Bow...

Well, once again the weekend has flown by and apart from our car breaking down yesterday, it was a relatively uneventful and quiet time...maybe, this is just the calm before another crafty storm?? hee hee...

I hope you all had lovely weekends and a big hello to all my new followers who joined my little blog over the weekend. It's always great to see new faces and please, come and say hello...I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all really well.

So, I'm sure the romantic amongst us haven't forgotten that tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I hope you like what I've made for this occasion.
Some of you might remember my Christmas cracker project and I thought it would be nice to use these fabulous "Paula's Crackers" from Which Craft?, to make a series of them for all the special occasions this year. So, ta-dah...I proudly present my Valentine's Day Cracker.
Of course, all the die cuts that I used to make this project are from Lord Tim Holtz and I just spent the afternoon, inking them, moulding, embossing...the list goes on, until I got exactly the look I wanted and believe me, it took a long time to get that cupid to stand of it's own free will. LOL. I used the Tim Holtz music score stamp and stamped onto some card and then layered that onto the sides of the cracker.

Right, it's time for me to go...things to do and lists to try and tick off!
Thank you for stopping by to take a look at what I've made today and I will be coming round to see all your blogs, asap!!
See you soon and bye for now.
Love Emma xxx

  7. I love your Valentine's Cracker, Emma. The little cupid is great. What a novel gift instead of a card. I hope it's going to someone special. I have been struggling all day with my card but have given up and will have to resort to plan B, one from my box!!! Isn't it frustrating when ideas just don't come together.
    Hope you got you car fixed and it didn't spoil anything special and have a lovely evening.
    Thank you for you kind comments. We are all back to normal in The Craft Garden now, or as normal as we get anyway!!
