Happy Valentines Day

Well as usual I didn't receive a card or present for Valentines Day.He reckons he doesn't need to buy a card one day a year to show that he loves me when he shows me all year long! Yeah right.
We did go to Selfridges Champagne bar in Birmingham for lunch though.We intended to have breakfast but when we got there we saw they'd got a set Valentine menu so we waited and had that. The food was amazing as usual and included was a glass of champagne each so has he hadn't sent me a card I drank he's as well (not that I hold a grudge).We had a look around the store while we were there I love looking in Paperchase and Pedlers.In Pedlers we saw a fab 1950's diner payphone so we got that to go in our newly decorated kitchen.

How cool is that!

I don't seem to have got a lot done this week crafting wise but here are a few cards I've managed to do with the PinkWhispers challenge.

I'm still loving the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set.

The chipboard square is the new glitttered journaling stickers from Prima.They are so pretty!

and finally a card very similar to one I've already done in a previous post but a different colour scheme.Once I get a design I like I can make a set of cards very quickly and by using different colours and embellishments they won't all look the same.

I'm hoping I can get a bit more crafting done this week.See you all soon!

oh my, these cards are just so beautiful. I wish I could match your creativity. They are totally stunning. I might have to copy a few of them if you don't mind.
The pinks are so lovely and soft. That one with the butterflies is particularly lovely and I really think I need that scalloped square. Super.
Love the vintage phone - very cool.
I didn't get a card or a present either (in fact I bought a present for myself and then gave it to him to give to me!) but I did get quite an amazing bouquet of flowers. But a Valentine lunch at Selfridges sounds pretty romantic. But whatever, we love them anyway, don't we???

Paperchase, then Pedlars, then Cath Kidston and a quick peek at The White Company, followed by coffee at Starbuck's - that's my route around Selfridges. Lucky you, lunch at the champagne bar - I've only been in there once, and that was to pick up a goodie bag... Love your phone, and your cards.

I had a bunch of flowers - bought when he went to get mushrooms for breakfast, which he did cook...
