Day trip to Coventry!

We have had a lovely weekend! Yesterday was the usual round of shopping, washing, cleaning etc and then a trip out to the largest indoor play area I have ever been to, which was great fun!  Today we went to Coventry to see one of my best friends and her family. The kids had a great time dressing up, playing Gormiti monsters and then had a great trip to the park, whilst Jules and I put the world to rights! It was a great day.
As a result I haven't had a lot of time for crafting this weekend, but did manage to join in with the Less is More challenge in the little amount of time I had yesterday.  The challenge was to have some sort of aperture on your card, so I cut out the heart shapes by hand (as I don't have a punch or die cut of the right size) and then coloured inside the card using distress ink (fired brick) and stamped the Crafty individuals music stamp over the top and finally added the red gems. I had to hold the card shut to photograph it, as it didn't photograph well otherwise!  As red is the only colour on this card I am entering it into Creative Card Crew 'seeing red', CCCB 'pretty inside and out' (most of the stamping is on the inside), Delightful challenge 'distressed/vintage' and Crafty Creations 'Valentine'.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.

the apertures down the border look great and I love the sentiment as well.
