Hearts/Valentines - GDT at Crafty Boots

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was fairly quiet in comparison to recent ones - which meant I had lots of crafty playtime in my little crafty haven.

This card was recently picked as Top3 in the 

and I was very lucky to be invited to be Guest Designer for this month's challenge and today I am super thrilled to be sharing my GDT make for the theme


Here's what I came up with:

Here's what I did:

I cut 6 hearts using my Scan n Cut from some scrummy LOTV 'Heartfelt' DP's
I added some faux stitching to the centre of 3 of them and folded them in half.
I stamped a flower stem across another piece of LOTV 'Heartfelt' DP and adhered the 3 flat hearts to the top of the stem then adhered the folded hearts over the top - just adding glue to the centre fold.
Finished off with a fabulous Diamante Spacer and Acrylic Gem a couple of paper-pieced stamped leaves and sentiment tags from LOTV.

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Crafty Boots for inviting me to Guest Design for them - such an honour.

Debs, I had something to say about your card, but I've gone blank for a minute because all I can think about are those delicious Grandbabies of yours! Oh my goodness, they're all so cute!! Ruby Mae is too cute in her wee tutu and little Oliver snuggled up with Grandad, clearly has the best seat in the house! Lola looks so chuffed to be having grown up girl time at the coffee house. Three beautiful Grandbabies. Right, now I remember... Gorgeous card hunny, utterly inspired design idea using the hearts as petals for the flower. Love the handmade paper effect too, with the heart petals. Love it! Thanks for joining in the fun at Fab ‘n’ Funky for our ‘Hearts & Flowers’ challenge. Hugs, Wends x Fab ‘n’ Funky DT
