Valentines card

I have just made this valentines card. It features the character 'Boofles' who I adore. I die cut him using my scalloped circle nestabilities from last years calendar, the images were too cute to bin! The papers were free from quick and easy cards many years ago but I thought they suited quite nicely.

- 8x8 scalloped cards from hobbycraft
- papers from quick and easy cards magazine
- red corrugated card from snippets box
- sentiment and 381 numbers also free with quick and easy cards
- image from calendar
- red stickles on boofles' heart
- gems from stash (actually for ironing on clothes!)

I would also like to enter this into Di's Snippet challenge as I used snippets!

Thanks for looking :-)

Ooh Laura . . . Boofles is simply ADORABLE.

In answer to your question about my die cuts. On my Kenny K card, the WHITE die cut (Curved Rectangles) is ONE die cut that I ran an embossing tool around the inside edge with the die still in place to give the embossed edge. The RED die cut behind the white one was made by drawing around the OUTSIDE EDGE of the SAME SIZE die cut in pencil and then cutting it out with scissors. HTH xxx

Sorry . . . that should say the SAME SIZE DIE (not die CUT). xxx

This is adorable! Love that image. I have no idea whatsoever what the 381 is all about but love this card anyways.

Such a super cutie card you have made here. I too love Boofles and Hubby even bought me some stamps but I have only used one or two of them. Now you have got me thinking.... watch this space. 10/10 for recycling your calender!
