Good morning everyone - hope you're all well and coping with whatever weather extremes you're having in your part of the world. It's freezing cold here again, though at least where I am we haven't got snow at the moment!
I was really thrilled and excited when Sharon asked me if I would like to do a Guest DT spot on Papertake Weekly for the months of February and March ... woo hoo yes please!! I love PTW, it really is one of my favourites and I enter it most weeks when I can. Indeed the only downside I can see is that i won't be able to enter for any of the yummy prizes for the next 8 weeks lol!
This week our theme is
Hearts &/or Flowers
Pretty easy peasy methinks with Valentine's Day just around the corner, and hopefully we should get loooooads of entries !
Don't forget to check out the main blog for details of this week's sponsor, and to see all the gorgeous creations by the rest of the DT - here's mine for this week.
I think it's probably fairly self-evident that I majored on the hearts lol!! Indeed I shouldn't really be posting this yet at all as it is my husband's Valentine card ... but I know he doesn't look on here and in any case I don't have multiple husbands to make multiple cards for!!
This card is quite unusual for me in a couple of ways ... firstly the fact it is a stepper card (I recently bought a pack of 5 pre-cut ones, and so enjoyed making my first one here that I thought I'd have another go). Also there is the fact that the main image is not stamped but is decoupaged with cute teddies that were free in a craft magazine :-). I rather like the fact that stepper cards allow you to showcase intricate border punches - this is especially true with the extravagant Memory Box ones.
Image & Valentine sentiment: decoupage from kit free with craft magazine;
Sentiment: Penny Black transparent set
Papers: Craft Creations;
Supplies: papermania heart gems; ribbon and heart-shaped doily from my stash;
Tools: classic hearts nestabilities; Memory Box "Cherish" border die.
