Hello I hope you are well today :)
Another Wednesday has rolled around which means that it is time to tell you about the new challenge over at MMCS challenges.
This week we want to see projects with hearts and flowers on them. We are sponsored by 
For my card I have used digi papers from the Thrifty finds digital kit by Mari Koegelenberg available at
I  must confess to being thrifty myself as the ribbon I used came from an old pair of PJ's !

The text image, which I used as a sort of tag, is a freebie but I cannot remember where from - I am sorry - if anyone knows email me and I will update this post x

*Top tip* The die cut border was white (I did not have any red cardstock - it is now on my shopping list !) so I used the boys crayola crayon to colour it in - I love how it brings the texture out and almost looks like woodgrain. I also used the same crayon to edge the sentiment strip so it "popped" a little more against the kraft heart.

The heart was die cut with a Nellie Snellen die and embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder. Flowers, ric rac and pins are all from my stash.

Here's a closer look at some of the details

I am really pleased at how the crayon looks - I'll def' use this technique again :) 

I hope you'll play along with us at MMCS challenges this week - don't forget to hop over to the blog and check out all the fab DT creations and get all the details of the challenge.
