A little bit of love

Hello lovely people,

I hope you are all well and not wilting too much in the heat!  It has been a little uncomfortable at times especially when working but I absolutely will not complain that it is too hot as it seems waaaay too long since we had a decent sunny summer here in the UK :-)

Now I've done the British thing and discussed the weather I can move on to our new challenge at In The Pink where our theme this month is...


Cue James bear!  I'm sure I have other cute critters in my stash but I really only have eyes for James :-)

It's a cleaner looking card from me today with no inky or distressed edges, just a little sprinkling of Frantage and sparkly edges (Stardust Stickles) to the little heart stems.
The big heart has been paper pieced.

Card recipe;
Image: James - big heart - LOTV
DP: Yours truly & Special delivery (girl) - Pebbles (available at Hey Little Magpie)
Tag: Sentiment tags - LOTV
Seam binding/twine: The Ribbon Girl
Dies: heart stems - Impression Obsession

Copic colours;

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

Challenges I am playing along with;
1.  Simon Says Stamp (emboss it - I used Frantage embossing powder)
2.  As You Like It (fave sentiment = 'with love' because it works for a range of occasions and is just a lovely thing to say to someone to make them feel special!)


  1. Gorgeous card, as usual, Kat!! Love the twine and ruffled seam binding it looks so pretty. And now the weather!! I don't actually mind being at work at the mo simply because of the air conditioning!! xx

  2. Fabulous teddy bear colouring Kat... and I love the paper piecing of the heart and even the patch on the heart too! Love your CAS layout too.... those hearts look so good and are such a perfect touch to complete your fabbie card!
