How fortuitous that the theme for Chocolate Baroque 'quintiles' this month was Valentines - here is my second heart offering. This time I used some Tim Holtz tissue which was scrunched up and added to a piece of card using Glue and Seal. Once dry it was spritzed with gold and red Glimmer mist. The heart is a CB stamp and the treble clef is a Marianne die. The quote (the first line from Twelfth Night, W.Shakespeare) was produced on the computer. You may recall I mentioned hating English literature at school and Shakespeare was no exception but somehow this useless piece of information has remained embedded in my brain for ?? years - I'm not saying how many!! Both tiles have now been posted off to the organiser and I wll receive two surprise ones in due course.
I hope the postman brought lots of lovely Valentine cards for you all today, but if not here is one from me.

No - not literally, I wouldn hurl stones at the two birds here (or any other birds for that matter)!! This week the challenge on Make My Monday is to 'add a charm' and as I also have two Quintiles to make on a Valentine theme for the Chocolate Baroque February swap I've managed to combine the two themes on this one. The background is a beautiful love letters download from CB printed onto gold lustre paper; the heart is a CB stamp which I embossed and then coloured with twinkling H2Os; the 'love' word is one of their stamps also. The bow was cut from some of the left over backing paper using a die-namics die; birdcage charm was from my stash and the little lovebirds were cut using a Memory Box die. Do take a look at the MMM challenge blog to see what their design team have offered us for inspiration. I'm now working on another Valentine themed quintile so that I can pop them both in the post to meet the deadline.
