This card is for:-
1. Just Magnolia - week 38 - sketch
2. Roses On Paper - challenge 28 - use favourite colour medium
3. Creative InspirationsWednesday - challenge 41 - Thank you
4. Fussy and Fancy Friday - challenge 1 - "new"
5. Stamp Something - New Somethings

I love how this card has turned out, I've made it for my kids to give it to my Mum as she took all three of them to her house and spent the morning baking buns and scones, last Sunday. I'll put some choccies with this card to say thank you as the kids had lots of fun. I bake and cook with them but I think they enjoy the change sometimes.
I don't hardly have any fabric flowers or not many flower punches, so i'm always looking for new ways to do flowers and I thought I've done alot of handmade roses, so this is what I've come up with. I punched my flowers and cut some hearts on the Cricut, inked the edges, then using Versafine, stamped the hearts and flowers with a detailed flourish stamp. Then heat embossed them with gold powder. They may not be everybody's taste but I love how they've turned out. I also used 3D gloss on her shoes the end of the wooden spoon and the broken egg, but it doesn't show on the photo.

Just Magnolia gave us a great sketch to use, whilst Roses on Paper asked us to colour in our favourite mediums, and mine is Distress Inks and H20's. Creative Inspiration Wednesday has the theme of "Thank you" so this is my Thank you card to my Mum. Both Fussy & Fancy Friday and Stamp Something have the theme of "New" which includes using new products, well everything has ben cut using my new Purple Cow paper trimmer and guillotine combined that my lovely Hubby bought me. Also the image I've never used before and it was won as a prize at Die Cut Dreams for a Card I made, these flowers are a new idea too so that might count aswell.

Hope every one copes with the bad weather and the cold
Keep safe
Happy crafting

Hi Tracy I just love this card and your hearts and flowers are fab, what cartridge did you use? Got to say I have the purple cow, it is the best cutter ever, I have tried a few a nothing compares its the most accurate I have used.

By the way did Fiona answer you about the LOTV stamps? I have a few of the new ones and I have them on U mount and they stamp lovely, I find that unmounted rubber is a bit iffy to stamp with but when cushioned they are great. I can stamp you a few if you want, let me know if you want some, you can see the print quality for yourself then, I have some old style and some of the new.
