Love is in the air.............

Not in our house it's not!!  I've been like a bear with a sore head today, because I've had no internet for most of it. And then it's just taken me about 3 hours to post this because Blogger has been playing silly beggars again! 

All day I've had internet problems, there seems to be something wrong with our wireless thingy.  After finally speaking to tech support (aka .... hubby) he told me where to find an 'ethernet cable' so that I could actually plug my laptop into the internet (plug it in ......... how quaint!!)  Well. it worked.  I'm now connected again (yeah!) by a bright red cable that's running across Stephen's office floor - no blogging in the craft room then, the cable's not long enough.  He'll just have to put up with me taking over a desk for this evening.

It's the end of another busy week (still haven't got around to finishing those wedding invites - oops!).  I've got loads of other stuff done though, and even found time yesterday for a lovely chat with a friend, over coffee and cake in town.

It's Twinchie time again, and we're going all romantic for Challenge #2.  The girls over at Twinchie Towers have given us the theme ......
Love is in the air!

The DT have come up with some fabulous inspiration twinchies as always.  Here's my take on this month's theme ..........
I covered my twinchie with a leftover piece of paper from my bit box and then inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink (I think this is my favourite colour at the moment)
I covered another piece of card with the same paper then die cut the heart shapes using a Tim Holtz  Movers and Shapers die.  Again I used the same ink around the edges of the larger heart and coloured the whole of the smaller one.  I added a touch of faux stitching around the edges, some black ink for a bit of shading, then attached both hearts to my Twinchie.
The words are made up of one from the Tim Holtz Chit Chat pad (together) and the other's are a stamp from the stamp set 'Petite Pairs' from Stampin Up!  A bit more inking around the edges and a spot of matting and layering and the jobs a good un'! 
I think it says it all, don't you!?  I think this may just end up on a card for my someone special (so Stephen, when you open the envelope next Thursday, please act surprised - love you!!!)
Well. I think that's me done.  Looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend.  But first I'm off to check my emails, pop onto Facebook, and  then catch up with all your blogs that I follow.  Well I haven't been able to do it all day, I don't want to miss anything.

Before I go, a quick reminder that it's my day on the DT Blog over at Creative Studios (better late than never!)  Here's a little sneaky peek just to tease you ........

Thank you for popping by today.  It's always nice to know that you're with me.  I notice I have a couple of new followers too, it's nice to have you along.
Have a lovely weekend.  I hope the weather's kind to you.  I hear there's more snow forecast for the UK over the next couple of days.  Stay cosy and warm, and keep crafting!
Cheerio for now
