In A Word

Friday's challenge from Daring CardMakers is.........

'This week I dare you to use a Word as the main focal point to your card. It can be a name, a greeting or just a word that inspires you. You can use other text but only one word as a main embellishment. So dig out your dictionaries, die cutters, alphabet stamps, rubons or download a funky font and show us what you can do! The design team have come up with some fabulous creations to inpsire you.'

Papers are Basic Grey (yet again!!!) which I have used in a patchwork effect with hand drawn stitching. I then randomly applied rub-ons, epoxy, metal and ribbon and suspended the heart from ribbon using brads and eyelets.

Thanks DCM for another great challenge and for taking my mind off the fact that my eldest DS is leaving for university tomorrow and I am feeling really sad, even though I am happy for him, if you know what I mean. Anyway tomorrow holds a trip
to Birmingham and lots of tearful goodbyes!

Anyway, I am going to console myself by buying some of the new Heidi Grace papers which should be showing on Charmed website very soon as Karen has announced their arrival today. These papers are absolutely lush itself and I dare anyone not to love them. Hurry up and get them uploaded - please, beautiful, wonderful, darling Karen!

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Leeds United just scored again.......well, that cheered me up! We are rockin', c'mon Leeds!
