 Hello everyone,

No nautical today from me today as it is Wednesday the 14th of Feb and Valentines Day, and I'm hostess over at  LITTLE RED WAGON  and we are celebrating this particular day as well with my theme...SHOW US SOME LOVE

I have had this beautiful picture for many years and it 
was time to turn it into a Valentine..

I needed gold music notes..

Look at that dress, I would have worn a dress like that 50 years ago..

Panesl sorted and die cuts done..

Love the spot, quite the contrast but it works..

On went the hearts and the love..
which was die cut at least 5 times for dimension..

The panel getting sorted and glued..

Needed wooden hearts...but greeny blue ones to match the dress..
so coloured them up with my markers..

And then she was done,,,

So do come on over  HERE  

and shoe us some love..

Thank you so much for stopping by
I'll see you tomorrow..
