You Complete Me

Evening everyone,

Well we've had an interesting day at work today. I got to meet one of my comedy heroes, ex-pupil and non other than Edmund Blackadder himself - Mr Rowan Atkinson. Us lovely Dinner ladies got to serve him his lunch, what a nice man :) and what a nice car too lol :) .

Anyway onto tonight's card which has a quote from one of my favourite movies "Jerry Maguire", this is for my gorgeous other half for valentines day. I don't really believe in Valentines Day and often think it's all hype and overrated, and we have our own little anniversaries and dates to celebrate, but with getting engaged last August , this year it's quite special to us, so I've made this card. He doesn't look at my blog often so quite safe to show you.  I wanted to keep the design fairly clean and simple.

I used my cuttlebug heart die and then drew on the jigsaw shapes. I cut out one of the jigsaw shapes and hand wrote  the "You" and hand wrote "complete Me". I went over the heart and jigsaw piece with crackle glaze to add some texture and have just noticed the you is slightly smudged, will have to replace it :(.

Anyway thanks for looking.
