BOUQUET OF LOVE ... {DS4J}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: DT Project Challenge #85}

Another design team project for our  challenge over at DS4J's challenge blog.  The theme for Challenge No.85 is HEARTS.  Our talented design team member, Karin is hosting this challenge.  Thanks Karin for choosing this awesome theme for us.

Another centre step design.  I have used the following image from DigiStamps4Joy:
  1. Mini Misteri - Arms full of Love
Another centre step design.  The images have been coloured with H2O pencils.  The bling is from my stash. The sentiment is from Create with TLC .

Looking forward to seeing your creations. So hop on over to DS4J's challenge blog and link your Creations to Challenge #85.


Here is a tutorial for the weaved hearts on my card, using two arch shapes:







Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:
A big welcome to my new Followers, hope you will enjoy your visits here.  Also thank you to my loyal and faithful followers who always leave such wonderful inspiration here for me to feast on. Leaving you with a photo I took of my beautiful niece Liesl on her wedding day in 2012.

  8. Wonderful card desiré, and how fun to see, that the rest of the world have found out to make these cute woven hearts, that we´ve been making for christmas here for hundreds of years, but nobody knew just a few years ago, but now you see them all over the world ha ha ha. Here our kids learn to make them, when they´re 3 or something like that. It´s probably some of the first christmasdecorations all kids learn to make here, so it´s really fun to see them soo used everywhere now.
