Love Trio ....

It is the time for L O V E .... so to celebrate I made a trio of LOVE cards using some gorgeous goodies from My2Angels
All these cards use the same patterned papers, The Girls Paperie, Toil & Trouble – Writing on the Wall and Echo Park, Little Boy – Strawberry & Sky.  I have used Core-dinations Nightfall & Bazzill Kraft cardstocks. The white card I have used is some I managed to find in my stash! I am ALWAYS running out of Black & White cardstock!!

For J’taime I have have embossed the Echo Park paper with the Script Cuttlebug Embossing folder  and I have threaded some My2Angels White Hearts Satin Ribbon through a punched border between the 2 papers. The My2Angels Silver Self Adhesive Rhinestone Heart was stuck onto the Echo Park paper and then mounted onto black cardstock.
‘Love’ is Scrapware Chipboard Antique Lowercase Alphas, very lightly inked,  the ‘o’ though is a My2Angels Circle Pendant, covered with the embossed Echo Park paper and then a My2Angels Eiffel Tower charm (how gorgeous is this"!). To carry on with the French theme I have used my Dymo to punch out a j’taime’ label!!

Love Stitch
For this one I have used Kraft cardstock with the same papers. I’ve used a couple of die cut labels and stuck them on to look like they wrap around the whole card. I’ve used some red embroidery thread to ‘sew’ the labels together.
 The ‘Love’ title is a My2Angels Love Pin but I have chopped off the bottom of the pin (so sorry Tracy!!) and mounted it onto 2 die cut circles of black cardstock.  I’ve fake stitched around the inside label.

Lock & Key
For the final one I’ve used white cardstock with the same papers, I loved playing with all different coloured cardstocks with the same papers ... you can get such different results.
 I punched the edges of both papers and again used some My2Angels Black with White Hearts, satin ribbon. I then onto the ribbon a My2Angels Large Silver Heart Locket and Love Key charm.
The 2 tiny hearts are Maya Road Trinket Pins and for 'love' I've used my Dymo again!! just love it!!! I finished by applying some Inkssentials White Enamel to the holes made by the punching on the red paper.

... and to finish a couple of photos from my DS's football training session on the beach last week! It had been 36 degrees here in the day and the beach and water was just fabulous! But then I, ONLY went for a walk and a swim .... he did a 6km run up the beach and multiple sprints on the soft sand !!!! so it was a tad harder work for him than me LOL!!!

BTW this one is NOT my child thank goodness!!!

If anyone else is having problems with photos loading on their posts, can you tell me how to fix it! I've never had a problem previously but the last 2 posts I've had to play with the size of the picture so it loads when you open the page ... & please let me know if the photos are not loading when you open this post! Thanks :):)

TFL and for all your lovely comments .... makes my day that you take the time to leave some love .... thank you SO much!! 
.... still loving making these cards ....
Till next time .....
