It's Officially Summer!

Yes! It is officially summer!! And not yet the end of January! No, I'm not loosing my marbles - I've just heard the chimes of an ice-cream van. So it must be summer, right?!

And Valentine's Day has not yet been! This is my entry into the current CRAFT challenge which is a colour challenge of:


Which currently equals Valentines! I've made this (please excuse the very dodgy photo - it was early this morning and I had to use the halogen lights in the kitchen - don't know what happened with the card being lop-sided but I will blame me being tired!) from odds and ends from my stash.

The two red felt hearts are cut with a Sizzix die, there is a red fimo sparkly heart made by me, a punched heart and general buttons, beads and another fab Asda earring just right of centre! The musical heart is punched from music printed vellum.

I think it needs a sentiment, but don't yet know so will add it later. I have Jacob to thank for the buttons on this as he sorted them out for me and picked his favourites! Watch out Lynsey!!!
  • Dies: Sizzix Primitive Hearts
  • Fimo heart: Made by me
  • Everything else: My stash
