A Perfect End to A Perfect Week and my SCD

Well as I said on my Friday blog I have had a fabulous week off work and this weekend continued the same way, apart from the news about my Aunties wee dog Ben passing away he was a dear little chap and they will have some wonderful memories to cherish big hugs to AN & UJ. I beavered away this afternoon on my SCD challenge (Hearts; lovely subject this week). I first inked the card with TH antique and dried marigold then edged with bundled sage, I stamped with a floral swirl in grey and I cut out some hearts from a lovely piece of paper I had been cherishing to use at the right moment and inked the edges and stuck them on. I made a wire heart (I say I, but actually the Diamond did this bit for me XX), I then covered it with raffia and silk ribbon. The leaves, flowers, and butterfly I made from grunge paper and  inked and also beaded the butterfly. I must say I really love this piece and I will put it on my workroom wall. Hope you all enjoyed this weeks challenge as much as I did, seeing everyone,s work is really inspiring, keep it up everyone.

Absolutley gorgeous Sandra!!!

The wired heart is fab, well done. Sounds like you've had a perfect week off work and your wall hanging is beautiful and well worth the inky fingers and broken nails *snigger*
