Hi All,

Don't know where last week went!  and the fact that I started this card on Tuesday, but needed to put the sewing machine up just to stitch round '2' papers - can't believe it has taken till now to do it!!!

There are a few challenged around asking for Love and hearts, so a good opportunity for me to use one of my old favourite stamps, which was stamped onto white card, coloured with chalks for the background and Promarkers for her skin, rose and butterfly.  I then stamped onto acetate with Stazon.  The papers are MME Wild Asparagus.

Do you like the heart?

Although it looks a bit dull in the photo - it has a gorgeous sheen.  Lisa, at My Makes'n'Me made one or two last week and gave the link here.  They really are quite easy to make and this was my first try!  I added a heart brad (after cutting the pins off)

I am entering this card in the following challenges
  Try it on Tuesdays - For a True Love
  Everybody Art - Love
  Heart2Heart - For the one you love
  Make My Monday - Romance  (script on the bottom of the image)
  Simon Says Stamp - Love
  Sisterhood of Crafters - Valentine
  Our Craft Lounge - Vintage Love
  4 Crafty Chicks - Love is in the Air
  Fussy & Fancy - With All my Heart
  Divas By Design - Love
  Rainbow Lady's - Have a Heart

I said there were a few challenges - didn't I!

Thats it for me, and thanks for looking.
