Card Crafter's Circle/Challenge #9 Valentines/Hearts

Hello, and welcome!

We had a few snow flurries, today........didn't last, but was veeerrry cold....love it!

There's another great challenge at Card Crafter's Circle, and this week the challenge is 

VALENTINES/HEARTS 

Doesn't have to be a Valentine card, but we do need to see at least once heart on your creation......fun, eh?

We are back, this week, with one of our favourite sponsors


The randomly drawn winner will receive 3 images of their own choice, and there are sooooo many cute ones to choose from!

I used a very sweet digi called He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, and this is how it turned out.......

Yep, I chose to make a Valentine's card, and really enjoyed colouring this sweet little missy........

I had this freebie journaling card in my stash, and thought it would fit right in with this creation..........everything is coloured up with Promarkers, and the colour palette was based around the journal card....I really wanted to use that darn card....haa!

I cut the hearts with a very old Quikcutz heart die, sewed with dark brown thread, and grouped together.........

More hand stitching on the panel, and I added some toning Card Candi........done!

It amazes me that other parts of the world seem to send Valentines cards to just about anyone.....teachers, friends, their own children, grandparents, etc., while here in the UK, we generally make/buy one card, and give it to our own sweetheart....or whomever we would like to be our sweetheart...heehee.

But, as I said at the top of the post, this challenge doesn't have to be a Valentine....just add a heart, and submit it to the challenge.....easy!

Hugs,
Anne-Marie x
