You make my heart happy!


Another entry for this month's Hero Arts Love and Friendship Challenge.  I had fun creating this.  I actually envisaged it in my waking moments very early a few mornings ago and kept a snapshot in my brain until I managed to create it with stamps and paper.

I stamped the HA Heart Flourish (K5153) onto kraft and then cut the craft and machine stitched it to the black cardstock which I had punched with a scallop border punch.  I machine stitched them together with black thread.  I then stamped the heart part of the image repeatedly in red on white cardstock, cut out and popped on top with foam dots.  I added glossy accents to the bottom hearts and stickles to the red hearts when they were in situ.

Added the pearls at the end to finish it off!  Matted and layered and finished.  One of my little guys has been home sick since the weekend - on the mend but it is restricting my time leaving comments on all my blogland friends blogs..... I will be back!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a good day.
