Love letters....

Hello lovely bloggers,  gosh I cant believe I have reached 150 followers!!! wow thats amazing, thank you to each and every one of you. I do get around to visit you all but blogger is playing up and not always letting me leave comments, I have spent many an evening shouting at my ipad!! I know its not the ipads fault, I love it dearly, truly I do! lol just ask any of my family. 
My hubby and Meghan are getting annoyed with me, especially if we are watching a film on a friday night, I start with good intentions, I put it on the side table like a good girl, and then to my utter amazement I find I am sitting with it browsing blogs and such, all the while getting disapproving looks from said hubby and daughter. I dont even know I am doing it sometimes. 
Thats bad isnt it? I will just need to find other things to occupy my hands, maybe I should start knitting again! Oh dear not a good solution, let me tell you why,  before my youngest niece was born i decided to knit her a popcorn bear, its still in a bag somewhere half finished. thats not bad I hear you say, erm it is she turned 6 there in dec!!!! 
Well enough of me blethering ( waffling for those dont understand scottish!) the real reason for this post is to share a card that I have been working on. 
When Krista gave us a free digi for valentines (mwah, thank you Krista) She also had a code to save some pennies, is there no end to this gals generosity? SO it would have been rude not to use it, wouldnt it now? 
So off I popped to her esty shop and bought a couple, aherm more like 5 or was it 6!!!! lol I have been sitting colouring them at night while watching tv (when Im not on the ipad!) And as I had a few coloured I thought id best get them onto cards, so here is the first one
