Kt's Valentines card

Wow I can't believe how long I've been away from bloggong land....these last two weeks have been really bad for me health wise...my knee has been driving me mad, I've been having the odd day where I just haven't felt safe even walking around the house...

Anyways on to something much better...Kt our youngest (12 last week) comes to my craft class with me and absolutely loves it, and she has made some really fab cards the last few times we have been....last week we made a funny shaped card ot sure what to call it or what its called, but she did make a great job of it, so she decided to finish it off at home and change it into a Valentines Day card for Ryan her boyfriend (my baby is all grown up...its not fair lol)
She also decided to enter it in the challenge over at Little Hands Do Crafts as their topic this month is Valentines....

thanks for looking hugs KT xxxx
