Hi, and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

It's time for the start of another challenge over at 
Donna is our lovely host for this fortnight, and she would like to see a heart on your creations please.
The challenge runs from today till the 30th of January and closes at 6PM GMT.
Please go over to the challenge blog to see my lovely Team B friends, and there wonderful creations, and  we also have the lovely Christine on Team B now as she has changed teams.
Christine ,and I started our blogs the same week encouraged by a good blog friend of ours that no longer blogs.

So here is my card which I made for my Son's Anniversary in March.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card stock used is Hunkydory, and also the paper inside.
This card has a lovely gloss to it.
I die cut the heart aperture, and then added a die cut that looks like lace all around the inside of the Heart, this is a straight die cut, which I cut to fit the Heart.
The flower I made out of the same card and inked the edges.
The butterfly was up-cycled from a card given to me.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really appreciate every ones visit, and wonderful comments. 
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.
