Did you know I love you more than Marmite?

You will be pleased to know (or not I suppose) that I am still alive!!! This flu bug has really done me in! I'm still far from right....but I'm getting there!
Well that time of year has come to make Mr Wonka his valentines card...... and I do indeed love him more than Marmite and by golly I luuuurrrrrrvvvvvvveeee Marmite so that is a GIANT compliment to Mr W!
Please don't think that I'm super organised I'm NOT! ........I am however due to be going into hospital soon and I want to get everything sorted before I go as I'm not sure when I'm going to be going in (2 ops cancelled in last 6 weeks!!!)
I have used a sketch by Tiets over on the new "The Sugar Bowl" challenge blog. this is their first challenge........go check it out it is fandabbiedozie! I have used my other new Sugar Nellie stamp which I love love love!!! and some Basic Grey paper. I have added chipboard elements from my stash and have decoupaged the flower in her hair. Finally the greeting is done with mini Doodlebug rub ons.
I hope you like it, ohhhhhhh I know lets have a little Marmite survey.......If you are leaving a message (which I hugely appreciate by the way) then put ether "LOVE IT" or "HATE IT" at the end of your message and we can see if Marmite wins the day!!!!!


  1. Fabulous card chick. It's a really cute image and you've coloured it so beautifully, but what I really love is the sentiments. It's so fab and funky, and I bet Mr W will love it as well. Ohh Marmite, well I LOVE it, but it has to be thinly spread, but Mr Piggy, well he loves it slapped on with a trowel (barf) xxx

  2. Glad to hear that you are starting to feel better hun! I love your card, the colours are gorgeous and I adore that image. Such a funky card.
