A heart full of joy

Happy Sunday everyone. Well, the Birthday celebrations are over, as my waistband can testify!! We enjoyed a delicious family lunch out yesterday and I still have treats to come by way of Beauty/Hair Treatment and Shopping Gift Cards, so I shall save those for now. Thank you for your good wishes, cards and pressies, you are such a lovely lot!!

Anyway, I managed a bit of crafty time last night and as I have deviated a little from my Christmas Card Plan decided to rectify that by making this...


This is my first Your Next Stamp stamp set, I was so impressed with the quality it definitely won't be my last. I have looked at fabulous examples of colouring on Kraft so decided to have a go myself using my SN pencils, without blending solution this time. I was relatively pleased with the effect and will be having another play in the future. I made a sparkly heart to give a bit of life to the flat CAS style, using a long forgotten MB die.

Here are some challenges

ABC Christmas - D = Don't overdo it!!
Sweet Stampin - Glitter and Sparkle
ABC challenge - B...you pick (Bunny, bow, bird)

Enjoy your Sunday and if you haven't already left a comment on my Birthday Post below please remember to do so for the chance of  a "spend" at dies to die for!!

Take Care xx

  18. You always manage to have the cutest & huggable images on your cards. Love this fluffy bunny and of course the fab little bird. Obviously they are sharing secrets. Your pencils look fantastic on the kraft...wish I could do that well with pencils. Very smooth work on this technique. Really love the glittering little heart...just adds to the total feeling of Happy. And so pleased you had a fabulous birthday. You deserve it! TFS & hugs
