Love is in the Air

February the month that brings the love out in everyone.
Time to get crafty and use up all those pretty trinkets and pretty papers and make a beautiful gift to give to love ones or a very special friend in your life.

Too get your all inspired to make a hand made gift I've made a couple of decorative pieces using digi's from My Besties designs.

I've really enjoyed getting into my years and years of  hoarding crafty goodies and making these beautiful fun pieces.

Get creating and make your love ones something special and unique , whether  it be a card, an embellished gift or something unique made from your creative imagination , and don't leave making loving gifts to just February share the love all year round and keep crafting.

Enjoy and happy crafting
