It's a Heart!!!

Hello Everyone,
I have joined in with many of you and constructed a card with a heart, I do not celebrate Valentines day per se, for me the original idea has been lost amongst the commercialism, but the idea of sending a card to a person you are lusting after anonymously appeals to my sense of humour!  I have never sent a card, as I don't believe I have ever lusted after someone, I have just turned 63years old so I may have forgotten this feeling....Ha.

Anyway to my card, that I think will be suitable for a wedding celebration and this is the last one using the Dylusions Ink pad, as my Dt sample for Scottie Crafts.

  I have used watercolour paper to make my substrate, with the usual culprits of stitching and lace for my embellishments.
There is of course a step by step on how this was put together over on the Scotties Blog here.
Mixed media is messy but it is so much fun, thank you for all the positive comments on my cards using this pad, I know the girls at Scotties have been thrilled.
Pop over and say hello, they are a great bunch of girls that support and encourage all the  crafters here in NZ, a small country with a huge Heart!
This is also for CJS 2014  at Nat*Studio -to use a household item; mine is the corrugated cardboard.

I have had a fantastic week I hope you all have a great weekend.

Scrummy mixed media card - love that corrugated heart and the beautiful leafy textures in the background.

Completely completely agree about Valentine's Day... it's not meant to be for people who are already together!!

Love this card Sue, the colours are delightful and the textured heart sets it off a treat. I still do my hubbie a valentine card and he sends me one too.

Love the colors & the corrugated heart is fabulous, Sue! Beautiful work, my friend! Didn't realize we're the same age (within a couple weeks)--one more connection!

Stunning Sue. As usual, you have added just the right amount of texture and colour to make a card that really stands out. Beautifully done.

The flowers caught my eye immediately and when I read you used corrugated cardboard to make them, my heart jumped for joy. That's a brilliant and beautiful idea. This not a Valentine card is sensational!!

That deep purple caught my eye! So pretty! love it!

I do send cards for Valentine's Day but we got married that day. It's deep winter here in Feb. so it was a great reason to have a fun party in the middle of a pretty boring month! Just like Christmas, there is too much crazy with the holiday I agree!

Hi Sue, this is fabulous, I love the colours you have chosen.
Thank you for asking but I'm afraid that the water has not subsided and there is talk that the road will be closed for many more weeks to come. We actually made it onto the national news I'm told as they have had to flood an underpass in the next town in order to keep the water treatment works near us open.
I know that there are areas of the country that are so much worse off than us so we should be grateful but it is still horrid when you are having to deal with it.
