Simply Create Too Challenge 6 - Red Hot

Welcome to another Simply Create Too challenge! Following on from last fortnights theme, we have another similar one for you:

Red Hot

But keep it clean!

I've used some wonderful Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers (I just can't get enough of these!!) and an equally wonderful laser cut wooden heart with cupid! I bought a pack of these (tree decorations - what else?!) from Matalan a few years ago in a sale and I think I got 9 for £2 - bargain!! Plus they are light enough to be attached to cards. Ribbon is from Meiflower.

Good luck with the challenge - pop over to the blog for details of how to enter!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Creative Belli: Hearts / Valentines
Little Red Wagon: Valentines Day / Love
Papercraft Star: Photo Inspiration and Rustic
Penny's Papercrafty Challenges: Love Is In The Air
Craft Room Challenge: Valentines
Use It Tuesday: Love (wooden heart is the hoarded supply)
Paper Pretties: Ribbon or Twine

  • Papers: Cosmo Cricket - Circa 1934 digi papers
  • Embellishment: Matalan
  • Ribbon: Meiflower
