Heartfelt Creations entry.

Dear lovely Bloggers from the lovely blogland...

Sometimes I really wonder if at 43 I am like this, what just what will I be like in 10,20,30 years time haha probably a whole lot inkier and wrinklier I'd say lol...

Anywho, You all know I entered the Design Team call for Heartfelt Creations in the US well I thought I would post my creations today and let you all see what I have been making while quiet this last couple weeks, of course I had all my own DT commitments to make up and I had a lovely package arrive from Stamp addicts and it seems I made it to the semi's for their DT too so have some making to do this week.
The first  Item I made was a card. 
 Below is the inside of my card.

Close up on the dimension of the beautiful vintage floret flowers.
I do have all the instructions how I put these projects together but for today I thought I'd just show what I made, if anyone would like the instructions please just say and I will do another blog post with all the instructions included.

Next item... Think secret Garden.
 Even inside There is flowers and a heart, bling and all matching.
 This really shows the stunning paper , what you can't see is the gold guilding on the edges and the 3 layers of ribbon around the body of the box, it has metal embellie's too.

and lastly Heartfelt creations sent me a want to scrap album to decorate which took a while, with lots of pages so here it is...

I have used all sorts for this one, Air dry clay made the words and heart here with added gold gilt once dry.
Inside front covers.
Next there is room for some photo's , note the lovely cracks... 
Here with have some inspirational sayings on show and in small envelopes for interest plus of course more photo room. Coloured here with Sakura pens.
I am so in love with these papers, and all the dies and stamps match everything so beautifully. 
My last additions to this was some ribbons to help pretty up the rings holding it together and a charm that I made from my beady stash.
The little hand on the chain actually says hand made too which is nice. and it has little bells. The ribbons match well too.

Anyway guys I didn't realise there was lots of voting going on over on the Heartfelt blog or I would have said earlier especially as there was a prize but it has actually closed now and my entry has all been sent and the digital pics have been received so Please keep your fingers crossed for me and hope I get in.. I find out on May 1st so of course I will let you all know..  I would love to see what you think of my entry so feel free to leave me a comment and let me know. I really do read everything written here for me.
Have a great Wednesday and feel free to add my on facebook 
or Twitter 
or come see my Pintrest I have lots on there from My gorgeous DT Craftwork cards 

This weekend of course saw the Brrrilliant Alexandra Palace stamping and scrapbooking show that I first went to six months ago and what fun it was,  on Saturday I went and had company with my son and his young lady who is rapidly becoming a crafter.
It seems, the addiction is definitely a catching hobby haha.. then I went back again Sunday alone for a wander round and ended up on The Craftwork cards stand having a lovely chat with the gorgeous and special Julie Hickey (best hugs ever) and equally lovely Sue Taylor, Plotting the next things for you all to feast your eyes upon.
I ended up  giving an impromptu drawing session to show that 'YES' I can draw yay' haha I absolutely love it and still haven't given up on the dream of producing my own stamps one day.
Anyway this post has turned int  a mahusssive one so don't forget guys I need all that luck for the DT calls.

Big ol crafty hugs
