So its Feb the month of love & romance... and Katie has crafted up a dream using a wonderful bright colour which truly stands out......don't forgot to say from guess who?
I love the hearts, they look like little balloons and the heart filled with glitter is so cute. This would make a great gift to your special someone. 

Roses are red,
Violets are blue
