With A Heart….




Good morning crafters, did you get spoiled yesterday for Valentines day?

We don’t usually do anything special, we used to go out in the old days but now we just send each other a card. Keith is quite good and he buys me flowers regularly, and if he doesn’t I just buy my own because I love having them around


Because we’re feeling all romantic the challenge at Papertake this week is

With A Heart

You just need to include a heart somewhere on your card or project, as always there is a fabby prize up for grabs and some lovely inspiration from the design team




I chose this little image from the new Bunnies art pad, it’s one of 5 new pads from Lili of the Valley 

Did you see them on Create and Craft? It was a fab show but they had to pull the scheduled afternoon show because most of the items sold out. We’re hoping there will be a repeat so I’ll let you know – otherwise you’ll have to wait until the 24th February to get them as they were exclusive to C&C until then



PTW 45 - With A Heart


 PTW 45 - With A Heart 2


This little image is so cute, perfect for Mothers Day or a Mum’s birthday   ….or just to say I love you Mum

I made a little circle easel card, I used to enjoy making these shaped cards and haven’t done one for a while

I also used some of the gorgeous new Lili of the Valley heartfelt papers

After I’d taken the picture I put some glossy accents on the hearts and the jar for a nice finishing touch


Here’s a list of the other supplies;

Lili of the Valley scroll sentiments


Spot organza ribbon

Sweetheart blossoms and rosebuds

Nellies circle dies

Spellbinders classic circle dies




Hope you like it, thanks for all your comments I love to read them and will get round your blogs soon to see what you’ve been up to

I’m at the stitches show tomorrow and then it’s the craft awards tomorrow night, both at the NEC. We’re not going for the full day, my hip is a bit better but I don’t know how much walking I’ll be able to do and don’t want to push myself. It should be good, Lili of the Valley are nominated for a couple of awards for best blog and favourite stamp range and my lovely mate Dawny is up for best designer   …fingers crossed that we’ll win!


Have a great weekend all
