HS:MS - Filigree & DCM - Love


Ornamental fine wire work.


I had 2 choices today, I could go up to the attic and route around for a couple of hours trying to find the filigree Christmas angel that is somewhere up there or I could use the lamp in the Living room and hope it passes as filigree. Guess which one I went for!!

I would like to thank everyone for their kind words about Pete, yesterday. He has just taken himself off to the hospital so should be feeling a lot better by lunch time. The fun will begin when he comes home at tea time full of bounce and energy and annoyingness. It's just like having a huge 5 year old in the house who can't sit still, fidgets, plays practical jokes and generally winds everyone up - it's great as he makes me laugh so much!

I made this card last night to fit in with the DCM midweek challenge.
So what Little Extra treat have we dreamed up for you to play with this week?
Well, there's a lot of wedding talk around on the design team with two weddings coming up soon. So inspired by this we'd like you to put some LOVE into your cards this week. Wedding, Anniversary, Engagement or simply to say "I love You" - there are lots of opportunities to get lovey-dovey and slushy, so get out all the romanti
c stash out and show us what you can do. After all, you know what they say;"All you need is Love, Love, Love"
I used red, white and brown card stock, black cotton, brown brads and some black and brown ink pads.
