Creating from the heart
is the way I try to create!
It's certainly why I just love to
purchase these adorable metal hearts
I always look around for these when I see
Christmas decorations starting to appear at our
wonderful local nursery and gift shop.
I do love the plumpness and smoothness of this particular shape
as well as its shiny silver tone.
It really puts me in the right frame of mind
as I start to create some Christmas Cards for friends,
family and a few orders too.
I don't see myself as a religous type of person, however,
I am very drawn to images of the Madonna and Child
at Christmas time or any other time for that matter!
I love the images used here from these (Holy) cards
where they sit amongst a few gifted pieces like these
vintage watch faces, brown embroidered lace and
rhinestone pieces which were recently given to me from
Lisa (Tarnished and Tattered Blog) as part of a
recent swap - more about that in a later post!
Besides using some favorite images, I included stamping
but I do love the no fuss - simplicity of these finished cards.
as well as Washi tape which I rarely use at other times.
On the cards below I used some tiny scraps of
some special vintage laces
that will be going off to some special friends.
These last three I created as part of an order
for a local shop. I just love the combination
of the blue/grey and browns
in these ones.
I'm linking my post to Grey Dey Thursdey
over at Petite Michelle Louise Blog where you will see
some stunning Winter greys of Christmas.
Thank you always for your lovely comments - they truly
are always appreciated!
