Oldie But A Goodie #12 - Have A Heart

Well I would love to say the past two weeks have flown by, but I had a rotten head cold inbetween times so the past two weeks have seemed long, miserable and wintery! But never mind ... I'm feeling much perkier now so I really felt in the mood to make my second DT card for this fortnight's Oldie But A Goodie Challenge.

This fortnight it is Debs' turn to choose the challenge, and she has picked the theme

Have A Heart

So if you haven't started on your Valentine's card yet, now's the time!! But if (like me) you've got that sorted already, there are all sort of ways you can incorporate hearts into your creation - the other ladies on the DT have made some fabulous examples to inspire you.

Debs has also provided the gorgeous prize for this challenge - a yummy set of "Messy Rabbits" goodies - aww!

Don't forget that in order to be eligible for the prize you should submit a new piece of work and use a stamped image (not a digi) that is at least 6 months old ... so put your newest releases aside and have a little riffle through your stamp box to find an old but loved stamp ... and of course have fun!! :-)

Here's my card.

I decided to go with this adorable WOJ image of Belinda blowing kisses ... those little hearts are just flying through the air ... aww!! Since I last used this image I have also bought the LotV circle sentiments, and I thought this "With Much Love" one seemed perfect!!

Main image: Whiff of Joy "Melinda blowing kisses", coloured with Promarkers and Copics and decorated with glamour dust;
Sentiments: Woodware "happy birthday" and LotV sentiment circle; Papers: Pink Petticoat "Vintage Rose" (free with Quick Cards Made Easy magazine);
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts covered in Stickles; pearls from The Hobby house;
Tools: small circles and lacy circles nestabilties; Marianne D Creatables doily die embossed with Cuttlebug "birds and swirls" folder; Leone Em "ash Family" leaf punch; Martha Stewart small monarch butterfly punch.


I followed the fantastic sketch from this week's Creative Inspirations #97:

Incy Wincy #80 - Love
Magical Monday #15 - LoveStamp With Fun #97 - Love
