I can still remember ...

I am participating in the Heart Journal 2012 blog challenge ... creating 12 hearts for 12 months using different techniques.  This month's technique is to use painter's tape for texture and wire to embellish.  I am enjoying this challenge very much and looking forward to the next 11 hearts.

Thanks so much for visiting.

You Mean So Much to Me

You mean so much to me ... this is more of a masculine/romantic card using the map design paper from Tim Holts, a torn page from an old book and Hero Arts stamps.

* I've entered this card in  MOXIE FAB WORLD'S  The Map to Your Heart Challenge. I hope that you will join in on the fun *

 We have more snow here and it's been bitter cold and windy ... it might mean another weekend of crafting  ;)  

Enjoy your day and keep safe.

to love and be loved

The little fox was cut from a photograph. He is one of the five babies that were living in the fox den behind our home last year.  He had just come out of the den and raised his nose for a breath of air when I was fortunate enough to take his picture.  The family wasn't too bothered by me and at times ignored me.

... just sharing

Keep safe and a have a great day!

... you've captured my heart

This card seemed to create itself while I listened to Valentina Igoshina perform the Fantasie Impromtu by Chopin .

I so appreciate your visit. Enjoy your day and keep safe.

untitled heart

...untitled heart ... I love the name of Hero Art's new stamp set.  Sometimes it's a good idea not to have a title as it lets the imagination flow.
All stamps used here are Hero Arts.
The weather this weekend has been freezing cold here! It forced me to stay inside and get a little creative ... ;)
So nice of you to visit. Have a safe and warm week!

forever friends

  This little vintage card came together quite easily while I was listening to one of the prettiest songs written by Gordon Lightfoot The Last Time I Saw Her Face and feeling quite nostolgic .  All the stamps used on this card are from Hero Arts.
Thank you for visiting. Wishing you a wonderful day!

sending hugs

All stamps are from Hero Arts. This is my first time using the newspaper tulips stamp ... I think that I was inspired by the recent warm weather ... it's been feeling a lot like Spring! 

Sending hugs and wishing you a great week!

Love Letter

Hero Arts Stamps La Letter, the Simple Frame, which I fell in love with the first time I saw Jacqueline use it and the Watercolour Coneflower, a precious gift from my daughter.
Wishing you a happy new year filled with love and joy.
