A Grateful Heart

It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project for this months Challenge. I have gone a little shabby chic with this project and i really enjoyed getting out all those left over bits of lace and die cuts i have been saving for a long time and using some of them up on this pretty project .

I have used a pretty resin heart as the focal point and i added some glitter to make it sparkle .

I handmade the paper and Foamiran flowers again adding some glitter and stormy sky distress ink to the edges.

I made a double layer string bow and a double layer thin ribbon bow on my CraftDee Bowz bow maker and tucked them in under the flower..The papers are from crafters companion shabby chic range and the  edges were distressed with a Tim Holtz distress tool.. The sentiment is also from Tim Holtz  ideaology sticker pad.and says Start Each Day With A Grateful Heart.
 I love the softness and dimension on this card .

I hope you like mu project and that you will join us in this onths challenge
Happy Crafting

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello and Kathy here, it's my Tuesday to post for some inspiration.  

For my hosting project, I created this Inlay Style design, using a die from Memory Box.  The theme for this card is of course Valentine's Day since it is just a couple days away.  I love this little holiday because we do so much preparation for Christmas and then it is all over so quickly we need another little holiday to brighten up everything once again.  

Here is an image of the card I created just using all dies and of course my handmade bow.

Here is a photo of the triple loop bow that I created with my Craft-Dee BowZ tool..

I hope I have inspired you and I hope that you will join in on all the fun during this challenge.  Our sponsor for the this month is Imagine That DigiStamps.  

They have some really adorable images so please pay her a visit, I'm sure you will find something in her shop that you will enjoy.  Up next is Tracey.

Until next time,
