Hearts/Valentine at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning. Yipppeeee it's the weekend and it's also the start of half-term for Jack. I think he's ready for a rest as he seems so tired all the time. Luckily next term is another short one too :o)

So I'm here today to share my DT project for

Words 'Hope'  'Love'  'Adore' doe cut using Cricut Expression and 'Home Decor Solutions' Cartridge

Butterflies: Martha Stewart and Marianne Createables
Flowers and Ribbons: Papermania 'Parkstone Pink' Accessories
