Piece of my heart

Hello one and all and I hope you are well today wherever you are.

 Thankfully the weather has settled down and we have dry weather. Monday was quite another story and during my lunch break found myself holding on to the ladder while Martin climbed up on the barn roof to secure some flapping panels, it was safe to say that I stood there feeling quite sick thanks to storm Imogen!! Although the gales were horrendous at least at that point it wasn't raining so the roof wasn't too slippery!! A bit of a Superhero is my chap, so I think this might well find it's way into his hand on Sunday.



I used one of the PB "Piece of my heart" stamps and coloured with Promarkers after die cutting with a Marianne die set. The trusty white pen added some spots and the ribbon came from my stash. I know, two CAS cards in a week but I just had the "need"!!

It would be rude not to play along at these Love inspired challenges!!

Yes, Imogen was a bit of a blazer wasn't it Sarah, but much calmer today thank goodness although the sky is looking ominous this afternoon.

This is a real beauty of a Valentines card. It would fit in perfectly at this months theme at Penny Black and More challenge.

I thought I left a comment Sarah but seemed to spirit away so just in case I was
saying what a beauty this is.

Wow he is a hero out in that wether. Such a gorgeous card, love the image

MaryH said...

These sweet PB Hedgies...of course I LOVE it! It's perfect with the reds & dots, and certainly expresses such a lovely feeling for your DH's Valentine. He certainly sounds a Superhero to get on the roof during some 'weather' to fix the shingles. I can just imagine your heart was in your mouth, while he was up there! Glad all got repaired with no damage to life or limb! Happy Valentine's Day. Glad you're getting some drying out. TFS

I love your stepper card, Sarah, but my eye caught this adorable Valentine for your brave hubby and I had to comment here! First of all, it is really the cutest card! I love puzzles so this really made me smile. Secondly, I am SO glad he didn't fall off the barn roof and you didn't fly away in the gale!!

I wonder if you could email me about something at darnell dot knauss at gmail dot com. Thank you! Hugs, Darnell
