Another Valentine's card plus Buildings 4

"Anything goes with twine or string" at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week! You still have over two days to play in case you are inspired to use a piece of twine or string on your project! Here is mine:




And since I used snippets it also get's to play at Pixie's Snippets Playground


The woven piece behind the heart cutout I made a while ago when I had many red strips left over from a project. Of course, I couldn't throw them away! Stamped some of them and did a little paper weaving!  Hope, you like it!

Also wanted to share another card using buildings (since it's been a while). Made this a few months ago for a dear friend and promptly forgot to take a picture before I mailed it. She was kind enough to photograph it for me:


The cloud is embossed with swirls and the speech bubbles has stickles around the edge.

I always appreciate your visits and kind comments!

Be well,
Susanne

So much texture, Susanne! I just love that swirly texture folder, and this is a good reminder to pull it out and use it more often! Purple and red just go together, don't they?! Wonderful card. : ) Bev

Ooh, I love the colour combination and the paper weaving of your first card - it looks fab! I am also impressed by your colouring of the buildings on the second card to pick out the number '50' - very clever! :)

Fab cards. Your weaving looks terrific and it's such a striking colour combo.
Really love your idea on the 2nd - with the coloured numbers. Gonna file that idea away :-)

Two great cards! The paper weaving is a wonderful idea for your snippets, and the age stamped over the buildings is fab!

Zwei tolle Karten!! Zuerst haben mich das Blau-Rot auf der ersten etwas verwirrt aber je länger ich sie betrachte, desto besser gefällt sie mir!! Irgendwie hat sie eine magische Ausstrahlung!
Auch die zweite mit den vielen Hochhäusern finde ich sehr interessant!
Ich wünsch dir noch einen schönen Sonntag...
