Good Morning from a bright and sunny Lancashire though we have had a little snow this morning which has now gone though it is still very cold.
The challenge this week at My Time to Craft is "Hearts and Kisses". For my DT card I used a Hanglar and Stanglar image which was kindly sent to me by a lovely blogging friend in the USA. I coloured her with Copics and added a tiny red heart in the centre of the large heart which reads LOVE. The papers are all Bo Bunny, the striped one was cut with a Fiskars heart border punch. I wasn't sure what to use for the kisses and I found some lips in my stash so added these with three peel off x's. I finished with a ribbon, red rose and a Cherish sentiment found in my stash.
