Try It On Tuesday - Valentine's!!

So the TIOT challenge this fortnight is 'Get ready for Valentine's Day' and we would like you to include at least one heart on your project (which doesn't have to be a Valentine's card).

I had a couple of projects in mind for this DT project but in the end I plumped for going with an attempt at a vintage valentine. Once I get an idea in my head I just have to run with it!!

It is part digital (printed out) and part some bits from old collage sheets and 'scrap' I had in my stash. It's also a pop up card (not sure if that is clear from the photos).

Not sure how true to the originals this is but I think it's kinda cute!

Crafty-emblies is our sponsor for January, with a £10 store voucher for our lucky winner this month.

Just remember that to be considered for Top 5 and the Prize Draw you must only link to 5 challenges in total including ours. Don't forget to visit the other DT members at Try It On Tuesday and check out their projects as well!!

Great pop up card - you can definitely see that in the photos. Looks totally professional like its been made on a machine which shows how beautifully you have cut it all out and assembled it! x

Oooh Valentines... What great cards. I haven't had a chance to even think about it yet - can't let the old hubster down, now can I!

Thanks for your smashing comment, Cindy, and I'm so glad you like my new spoke guards. You are right, being an invisible wheelchair user is not pleasant, having people look away, or worse, walk into you, and talk over you!! The decorations make people look at you like a real person, and talk to you. And yes, I had the greatest fun making the spoke guards - I simply adore messing about with gel mediums and being really creative with texture and colour!!!

Have art, will travel. It's great taking one's art out and about wherever you go!
