House Mouse Challenge
The challenge at House Mouse this fortnight is 'Hearts' and the DT have made some fabulous cards.
My first thoughts were that I didn't have any 'love/heart' images to use for this one, but then thought about this image from crafty buddy Diane.
I have a Cuttlebug Heart die and 2 small X-cut heart punches and that's it! So I made my own heart 'border' with the small punch and used the cut outs around the card. I punched out a 'country heart' in red card, poked 2 holes in and used a VersaMark Dazzle 'Frost' pad and heat embossed with UTEE to make my 'shiny button'. I attached this to my ribbon bow with gold thread. I used Sardust stickles around the image and Cuttlebug heart.
Considering I didn't think I had anything suitable to use, its not bad!
Nearly forgot to tell you, after the last HM challenge one of my 'comments' was
from Barry Percy, inviting me to upload my HM cards on the the official House Mouse website in the - 'Handmade by Me' section!!!
I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Challenge - 'Love'
Stamping for the Weekend - Valentine
Die Cut Dreams - Lots of Hearts - No Sentiment
Wild Orchid Challenge - Love is
Sir Stampalot - All Creatures Great & Small.
