It's the weekend!

Good Morning everyone,  hope you are all having a good day. Yes, it is the weekend here in Dubai so that only means two things..... 1. even more crafting and 2. dragging hubby out somewhere (probably shops!).  Well, like it or not, Valentine's Day is around the corner (and along with it comes our 10th Wedding  Anniversary inshAllah!) so my card for this morning fits in with this theme.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
