Have a Heart - Daring Cardmaker's

It’s been a busy week one way and another because my good friend Nicki has been staring with me for a couple of nights while she’s over from Switzerland.
It’s an even busier week from her thought because she’s crammed so many meetings with different people into the week and she’s had quite a bit of travelling around to do too. She spent the first two nights with me here in Loughton and then three with her friend in Kew while she visits various offices and schools connected with the charity Kids Company that we stitch the cushions and quilts for. (that reminds me, I have a few new panels that I want to share with you so I’ll do that in a separate post)
Today she’s on her way down to Bournemouth to visit family and then she will be heading back up to Bristol to stay with our friend Sharon and family before flying home again Monday.
Think she’s going to need another holiday after that lot!

Unfortunately we didn’t really have a lot of time together but what time we did have we managed to have a good natter and Lythan even managed to pop in for cupper….it must be three years since they’ve seen each other.

Anyway, once I had seen Nicki safely on the train on Tuesday morning I decided to get on and make my card ready for the The Daring Cardmakers challenge this week and the theme of Hearts fitted in perfectly with a Wedding card that I needed to make.
I decided to dust down my old light box and brass stencils for this one!
I’ve embossed and over stamped large heart, which is the main focal point of the card and added a sprinkling of tiny little diamantes.
The panel was then cut with my Nesties and I’ve added little Blue Pearls to the scallops.
