always and forever.xx

good evening all, well i have had the most fantastic day as i have spent the day with my special friend and docrafts buddy lizzy.we had a fab time and lizzy made me the most beautiful present which you can see in my dc gallery.
now todays card is something a little different for me but i do love ripping and tearing paper so i`ve had a lot of fun making is for my hubby for valentines day, so i hope he will like it.

products used are square card blank used to make the easel old book from the charity shop which is catherine cooksons tilly trotter.i used distress ink in ancient page to age it and also used some red ink.lots of ripping and tearing and inking.heart cord.alphabet stamps and 2 decorative metal all in all a really cheap card to make.
