Creative Card Crew - Valentine

Happy Tuesday to you all ! Time today for another Creative Card Crew Challenge and this fortnight our theme is ' Valentines ' so for my DT project this time I made 2 cards for my children, my husband and I always send a valentine to each of them, so to save any arguments I made them both the same card just in different colourways, and it is surprising just how different they look.
This is the card for Sophie, she loves bright, vibrant colours and so these strong pinks and greens are perfect for her.
All of the products I have used for these cards are from Papertrey ink. I am completly hooked on their range since going to a make and take in november which used only their products.



And this is the card for Alfie, more muted tones but still effective.
As always we have a great prize on offer for the winner, so why not hop on over and join in with us again, we love seeing all your wonderful creations each challenge.
Well I hope you all have a lovely week, I will be back on friday with something a little different to share with you for the Crafty Calendar Challenge DT so be sure to check back and take a peek,
hugs,
Claire xx

Two lovely cards Claire Ellen, and you are so right - use different colours with the same design and they don't look the same. Your family will love to receive them - they're really neat! Liz x
