BBTB2 HEARTS CHALLENGE AND BLOGHOP!




























Hello everyone
Well it's the end of January already and time for another BBTB2 bloghop!
The challenge this week has been set by the wonderfully talented Maria who asked us to use the Lovestruck 2010 Cricut cartridge and to create a scrapbook page or card which had to include two hearts. I have this cart so was good to go but if you don't have this cart there is an array of hearts to be found on lots of other carts!
My card is 6X6 and the polka dot paper is from MME Lush collection. I took the gorgeous heart and into  DS, framed it with a square from Plantin School cart and then used hide contour to hide the outer line of the heart and welded the two together. I like this effect as the heart is then cut out either straight in to you card or layer as I have done. I used a corner rounder to soften the corners and pop dotted the layer on to my card and then cut a small red heart again from Lovestruck which I embossed with one of the little Cuttlebug folders from the Heart 3x3 cut and emboss set. My little border of red felt boys and girls with hearts is from Hobbycraft and I tied a little black and white gingham bow to the top of the heart with a little felt heart. The sentiment is computer generated , font is Gigi.
Now on to the bloghop! You should have reached my blog from the super talented Krista and now it's time to hop over and feast your eyes on the gorgeous card Susan has to show you! Don't forget to leave a comment to  let me know you've visited to be in with the chance to win some candy. Please leave me contact details and I will make a random draw on Saturday 5th February!
