Happy Valentine's Day - Snippets

Good Evening Peeps from, a very snowy Praha

Hubby and I have taken a short breaks to wonderful Praha to spend Valentine's Day.  So I thought I would show you the Valentine Day card which I made for my lovely man......

As you can see it has the theme of Praha, the medieval manuscript and illuminations were from a book which I bought some time ago, second hand for £1, as I knew it would come in handy for some Praha scrapbooking in the future, the cogs were to represent the clock tower in Old Town Hall (plus it also justified me spending money on the die!!), the hearts are kinda obvious and the heart punch border I actually borrowed from my friend Penny, and the image stamped on the bottom is Karlov most aka Charles Bridge, one of the most significant monuments of Praha after the castle of course.

All the pieces were from scraps which entitles me to entry into the Snippets Playground of the lovely Di.

And, just because I cannot get enough of Praha at the moment, here is a picture I took earlier today - please bear in mind that I have not yet edited this photo and we are on our way UP this hill with further to go til we get to the Monastery! 
 And as for Fergus - he has been a bit of a naughty boy not that he needed much encouragement from Simon!!!

Oh Sam - first of all, what a fabulous card! so many super elements all combined to make it a super Valentine and of course great use of snippets.

Secondly, thank you for sharing your trip - Praha looks such a beautiful place, I need to know more. Hope Fergus hasn't got a hangover tomorrow morning :)) Take care and have a lovely time - the swing is still swinging from where you leapt on very quickly and then raced back to Praha!!
