Valentine's Day Card

Well, I hope you are all having a Happy Valentine's Day, whatever you are doing. I am still recovering from being rather poorly. I had a bad migraine a couple of weeks ago, which was really bad. I was left with severe nausea which just wouldn't go away. I couldn't face food, even the thought of it made me feel bad.  seem to be getting over that now, thankfully, but I have a rotten cold! Oh well, life goes on.
My daughter Megan has just been home on one of her flying visits, bringing her boyfriend and her washing with her. It was lovely to see her, as she has been a bit down lately, and I think she just wanted to come home. She was really chirpy, and it was great to hear her laughing about the house. I got her washing done, and she was off again for a few weeks, back to Uni. We keep in touch, but I miss her, and there's nothing better than that first hug when she walks in the door.
I made Terry, my hubby a Valentine's card based on an Elusive Images themeplate 'Weekend in Venice' this year. We have been to Venice several times; I love going there, and we have some very special memories of our times there, and of being in Italy in general. So, I felt that this card was me being romantic for him. I used a background paper from an Artylicious paper pack 'Echoes of Italy', which looks like old plaster, and stamped a rose silhouette up the side. I watercoloured the main image with Distress Inks after stamping it on watercolour paper.
As this next week is half term, and I don't have to work, I am really hoping to join in some challenges. I always say that, and it becomes the kiss of death to my ambitions! Everything goes pear shaped, and I end up getting nothing done, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed... Bye for now, Judith x

This card is beautiful Judith and I especially love the DI colouring of the image. Perfect Valentine's card for your Hubby by the sound of it.

Hope you manage to join in those challenges.

Lovely use of that stamp, Judith. Beautiful sunset. Sounds like that backing paper was perfect for this project. I really must get some.

Lovely card Judith - I didn't get this stamp plate but wish I had now!

Full of sympathy for you - Ian and I both suffer with migraines although I've never had anything as bad as you've described! Hope you're starting to feel better - it takes days to get over it I think without getting a cold as well!
