With a Heart at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

The Lord of the Dance was amazing - thoroughly enjoyed it!!!
But the best thing about my weekend was the biggest hug I got from my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver - I think he missed me as much as I missed him :o)

So today I have my DT make for the new challenge over at


and this week the theme is


Here's what I did:

And here's how I did it:

I started by creating a heart shaped mask from a piece of paper and then inked through onto some white card with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
Before removing the mask I also stamped the Penny Black Letter Background - 1999L.
I outlined the heart shape with a fineliner.
Then I embossed the card with Embossalicious Recency Swirls and added a little more Spun Sugar Distress Ink to the edges.
Pink pearl bead string added around the heart and finished with a satin bow and a few paper roses - all from The Ribbon Girls.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Challenges I would like to enter:


Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
