Valentine

Morning all hope your well, I got on ok at the hospital, 
,they can help, I have problems with my pelvis and surrounding muscles, and believe it or not it all stems from childbirth, you could have knocked me down with a feather, I just couldn't believe what I was hearing, Jodie is 39 and nick is 36. it's hard to believe, I've got another appt next Tuesday to see what they can do.

Anyway I am sharing Rob's Valentines card I made him, I have used the New Heart Easel die and Sara's Love Collection, I really enjoyed making this, it's something a bit different.
It still looks a bit blurry to me, what do you think, I;m not sure if it's my eyes, shouldn't be though I have not long had new glasses.

Happy Crafting everyone
