Good morning folks.
After a couple of really crisp winter days we are back to grey and miserable, as well as windy. I suppose we are never satisfied and life would be boring if the weather was too predictable!
Anyway the saga of the track continues a pace. The heavy wagons on Friday managed to smash a field drain that was originally a good 12" under the verge on the side of the track. The result, a beautifully clear stream of water running down the edge of the track washing soil down to create a further mess at the bottom in the dip. The contractors have put down some granite lumps to fill in the dip higher up but the stream was still running mid afternoon yesterday. So much for them saying they would sort it at the weekend! Railtrack get your act together please!
The wagons continue to use the lane and erode the edges so I'm sure that more of the drain will be smashed before it gets sorted! It had lasted a good many years before Railtrack came.
Sorry, rant over and back to happier things. Love is in the air over at Cardz4Guyz where this
weeks theme is -
The scribbled heart die is from a Tim Holtz set by Sizzix which I cut from the top panel of my card. I then cut it again from some red funky foam and from a rectangle of white just a little smaller than the top panel. The background is a watercolour, Brusho and Inka Gold Platinum spritz experiment that has been sitting in my tray waiting for just this moment.
To assemble, I glued the red heart and white foam panel over the w/c panel and then glued the top panel complete with card heart onto the foam and then onto the base card.
The 'amazing' die is a new one from STAMPlorations and I love it so you will be seeing a lot of it, cut from a panel of shaded card made with a selection of red Copic markers blended together and the hearts were some of the same experimental panel. As with the heart I popped the 'always' up on some funky foam before gluing flat on the panel.

There are lots of Valentine/heart challenges around at the moment, all playing their part in influencing this card so I'd like to join in over at -
Inspired by the words
'Friends are connected heart to heart, distance and time can't break them apart'Heart was the link word to my card and my hubby is my best friend!
