Love is all around

Love and hearts are everywhere this week....I guess that means we're almost at Valentine's Day!!!
We don't especially celebrate it usually......but this year are actually going out with friends to a fairly 'upmarket' local establishment.......for a 3 course Valentine's meal.......followed by a disco......to dance off all those calories I should think.
I only make the one Valentine card........and was inspired by the gorgeous canvas on lynne's blog.......I love red and black for 'love' things......and nothing too cute for OH.
The music sheet was a free download.......torn and distressed.......a variety of hearts........cut ones,punched ones, a button and even a shrink plastic one.........the paper doll from Artchix.........and black Thickers letters to finish it off.
And there are sooooooooooo many 'love' challenges this week!!!
And if you'd like to look at a simply stunning art quilt entitled 'Why I Scrapbook' pop over to Emy's blog.

Sorry but a very irreverent thought just popped in to my head . . . . if music be the food of love then why don't rabbits play banjo's?!!!!!
Sorry for that - super duper card from you Jacky and I bet Mr Jacky will love it!
