Blue hearts.

Hi everyone. Happy Friday!

I'm so excited, my friend and I have booked our tickets to go see Eclipse tomorrow! We wanted to go last weekend for the midnight launch but we she was visiting family so couldn't make it.

I feel like such a big kid! Have you seen it/booked to see it?
Let me know what you think about it, I've read all the books anyway so know what happens :)

Right, moving onto something craft related. Here is a card I made with the intention of giving to Stu 'just because' although, he always makes a dig at me for making his anniversary and valentine cards 'too girlie' ! The cheek, maybe it's just him being 'too manly' haha and I think this is still not manly enough for him so I'll have to do another (any excuse to spend time crafting - Procraftination-itis! Anyone else got this? There's no cure, just medication in the form of stash to ease the symptoms!)

For the 'Designer Series Paper' element I used the little motif from Framed with Love and stamped it in a continuous pattern using the Stamp a ma jig (I was inspired by a card made by my lovely upline Bekka, you can see it here)

I used the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set and hand cut the bigger hearts but used the Heart to Heart punch for the smaller ones then finished it off with some Bashful Blue double stitched grosgrain ribbon. The love you sentiment is handwritten using my Signo White Gel pen along with the faux stitching.

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.

I am thrilled that my card inspired you - thank you.
