Happy Valentine's Day

I am having a wonderful week. I had my CT scan last week and there were no tumours to be seen. I have been feeling much better except for a flu I developed. I am at the end of it now so was able to make a Valentine's Day card. Thank you so much everyone that has prayed for me. You are all so kind and caring.

This card was fun to make. I colored Tilda with my Promarkers and flexmarkers.
I will enter this card in the Magnolia-licious Highlites challenge Blog. Patti Jo has challenged us to make Vintage and Shabby Chic. I hope this qualifies.
I will also put it in the Promarkers Challenge Blog    They want Love is in the air.
 As you probably know I don't usually go into challenges very often so to go into two is a big deal for me LOL.

Good news Maz! So happy your scan came back with positive results but sorry to hear you are battling the flu.

I think your card is so lovely today! Love the blues you chose for your Valentines card. Beautiful embellishing and beautiful coloring! Have a great day! hugs, Angela

Hi Maz. Oh it's so good to hear good news about the outcome of your CT scan. Hope you get over the flu quickly. Gorgeous card. Love the clean look. I have not tried the flexmarkers. I imagine they made those to compete with the Copic markers. Are they easier to work with than the Promarkers?
PS. Did you make the white flowers? They look like carnations.

Karen said...

Your card is so beautiful! I love the flower arrangement and the fence is so cute. I am so happy to hear the good news about your CT scan. Hope you feel better soon!
