DT Post for Creative Inspirations: sent with love

Good morning all - and welcome to my newest and oldest followers - its great having you along for the journey! I hope you're okay? I'm good although my run yesterday was hard work - I'm hoping that todays won't be quite so tricky!

This week's challenge at Creative Inspirations is  Sent with Love! So we're looking for Valentines/love themed creations.

This week's prize is from CEDAR CHEST DESIGNS which is a $10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!






Winners will receive a free $10.00 Gift Certificate to purchase anything
they would like from the online store.


I used an image of theirs with two gold fish on it - I loved it as soon as I saw it and knew it would be perfect for my husband - we are Fishers you see - which sounds the same as fishes - it works for me anyway!!!! Lol - the sentiment comes from the fact that my girls love their daddy to pretend to be Captain Hook and chase them around - and of course anybody who knows Peter Pan will recognise that 'codfish' is the term Peter uses to call Captain Hook. It all makes sense to me - honest xx



I used the sketch from sketch and stash 106 - i've used papers that have been in my stash for a long time! The image is coloured with promarkers and I used salty ocean DI around the edges of the X cut heart die. The sentiment was printed on the computer and cut using a spellbinders die. Under the pearls on the original image the bubbles are heart shaped but I really liked this look.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

audsentimentschallengeblog: Adult valentines
