Crafting For All Seasons Challenge 95

Hi everyone,
 
We have had another sprinkle of snow this morning.
Nothing like we had on Saturday morning. That was a lot more and
even covered the road.
Sadly, my class was postponed. People were concerned about driving to
The Craft Barn, as the snow was coming down quite hard.
By lunchtime it had all gone!! Ugh!!

We have another challenge starting today, at Crafting For All Seasons.

The theme for the next fortnight is,
Have a Heart.

Our brilliant sponsor is:
   
with a very generous prize of 7 images!!
 
 
My card is using the Bugaboo Digi, Girlz Celebrate.
I love this image and so useful to have, as it can be used for any occasion.
 
I coloured her with Distress Inks, with Glossy Accents on the balloons.
The papers are very old Hot Of The Press.

 

I printed her onto 300gsm watercolour paper. I sketched a heart shape around the image and just cut it out with scissors.
I then layered it onto a scrap of Bazill Burgundy card and cut around.
 
I sprinkled a little Antique Pink Frantage around the image.
Finished with a touch of Stickles on her.


 
The heart I cut from Balsa wood and covered it with Frantage.
The metal heart, was from my fave shop, where every thing is one price!!


 
There is some amazing inspiration here, on Crafting For All Seasons blog.
My lovely DT teamies, have made some stunning cards.
 
I also recommend a visit to the Bugaboo shop. I just love their images.
They have great funny images, that are very difficult to find.
 
I am looking forward to seeing all your entries. Lots of hearts this time!
 
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me lovely messages. I just love to read them and then I know you have been and I could visit you too!
 
Hugs,
Carolxx
