Hanging Hearts

Helloo from a very snowy Yorkshire,

We are thick in snow this morning - it snowed all afternoon and all evening yesterday and we have lots of it! My little doggies love it - Lacey keeps sitting by the back door wanting to go and play; she thinks she is a snow plough - she comes back in with a cute little pile of snow on her nose where she has been sniffing! Lol.

I have been working on some DT projects, but can't show you them just yet (one coming up tomorrow) - so I thought I would post a little project I made for my daughter's bedroom (which as you may have guessed, is decorated in purple!)  Here's what I made ...

I made the wall hanging using two chipboard hearts which I bought at a craft fair last summer.  I covered them with lush purple paper from the Tim Holtz Vintage paper stack and inked around the edges with distress ink.  I then went to town with the embellishments and added a bit of whatever I could find - there is a complete mixture of some stamped elements, some die-cut elements, some Frantage embossing powder, a gorgeous Tim Holtz key and a few other bits and bobs from my stash.  I was really pleased with the outcome, and so was my daughter!  Here's a couple of close-ups ...

I would like to enter this into the 'Stampin' for the Weekend' challenge which is 'Something Girly' - think this works, well it was made for my 'girly'. 

Stay safe if you have to go out in the snow, or why not stay in and craft like me ;)  Hugz, Jan xx
