Sewn with love


   The theme for the first Send A Smile 4 Kids challenge of 2020 is valentine or love cards.
   I printed a decoupage sheet using a House Mouse Design CD ROM and matted it onto blue card. The backgound paper was also printed using a House Mouse Design CD ROM and before matting it onto the same blue coloured card I wrapped dark crimson ribbon round it. I added some unused decoupage pieces to the bottom corner of the main image and also a sentiment which I matted onto crimson card.

Heron's rest



   Like many people I was tempted by the sale of craft goodies. This card was made using on of those purchases.
   The frame was made using Tattered Lace's notched rectangle dies and behind it I attached a charisma image cut using Beverley Eden's heron's rest die (the new purchase) and trimmed the edges. This was backed by cloud paper printed using the second Illustrious Illusions CD ROM from My Craft Studio.
   I cut a strip from a background pad accompanying the die and matted this and the framed image onto as near a matching coloured card that I had and then matted the whole onto cream card. I added die cut words to the strip and a gold peel off sentiment to the side of the card.

Christmas tree lights



   I began by attaching a strip of Christmas tree dphorizontally to red card which was then matted onto white card. I coloured the image from LeAnn's World called Daisy using Promarkers and then cut it out using a circle die. After adhering it to the card background I edged the circle with strips of silver open star chain peel off. Using various coloured stars from other peel off sheets I filled the centre of each star in the chain, Finally I added a silver peel off sentiment.
