Creative Craft - It's only Words

Hey Guys

Been a bit quiet on here, had a big clearout and decorated my bedroom over the October week and then had vomiting kids and a busy week including a visit to SECC Craft Show.

Had less money than usual to spend but feel like I maybe got more 'cause I was being more canny. 
I got the staples - tape and card blanks then some dies and stamps but 
only a few bits of miscellaneous tat/embellishments and I normally get lots of stuff I hardly use.
Plus usually go a bit mad and get some sort of kit (beaded snowflakes, Home wall hanging etc)
and never ever make it. Resisted some strong temptation.
My New Years resolution is to make all these things.

Anyway I used a stamp from one of my purchases for my card for 
Creative Craft Challenges new theme - It's Only Words.
Make Words the focus of the card for a chance to win the prize from our sponsor 

The sweet sentiment is from a set by Lili of the Valley - Quotables - Celebrate

Die cut with a Nestie then inked with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink,
backed with an inked doillie over an embossed and inked background and a bit of ribbon from my stash and topped with a wooden heart I picked up last week.

Your card is really lovely, Sandra. Such a sweet quote!
I know what you mean about Craft shows, it's too tempting to run round like headless chicken , grabbing everything in sight! At the time you really 'need' it, then it just ends up decorating the inside of a drawer! Sometimes less definitely is more!:)

I am so glad I popped into your blog today and saw this card. I have had that embossing folder for more than 5 years and haven't used it. Shhh...did I say that? This card reminds me of what I can do with it....and not just on Valentine's Day!!! This is gorgeous. I love how you shaded it, the doily, the sentiment....and sometimes it's the little things that just make a card the little heart. I'm saving your card on my remind me: USE THE HEART FOLDER..... :) Last night I worked on a card for SS and looked in my folders...I have over 60 folders, never use them, and this card is a good kick in the butt to me. Hugs, Gail
