'FFFC!!! YeY!!!' - Layered Heart Wreath

Hi there blogging friends x
Hope you have all had a lovely Easter - filled with yummy choccie eggs and plenty of  crafty fun!

I'm soooo sorry for my absence from my blog for a little while - hence no new posts (so sorry again x ) but all sorts on the go - life is one big merry-go-round for me at the moment (all exciting stuff - spring is deffo in the air!!!)


The snow is melting over here in my neck of the woods - but Leo (our big handsome Leonberger) is still happily frolicking in the remains of the drifts - oh how he loVes the snow, oh how he makes us all laugh at him so.  Leo and snow were made for each other!   

Leo last week just soaking up all the white stuff!!!

Can't not show you this piccy of Sammy the very cold pug too!!!
His ears look so irresistible - all pointy 'n' brrrr!!!

This is how cute Sammy normally looks
-effortlessly adorable like his big bro Leo x

Thought I'd share this gorgeous and appropriately V V Very PINK card.
So kindly sent to me from our lovely friend Ali Wiseman x
Thank you too!!! Ali xoxo
Gorgeous as always - you and your creations!!!

I'm crafting away as usual (have 3 or 4 little numbers on the go at once!) nothing to show 'n' tell about as yet though. 

But I am using my new Copic pens and air bush starter up system (SUCH FUN - Tee Hee) bought for me by my lovely hubby.

And I have a confession of the buying variety tooo!!!  

Fab new stash from Sarah Hurley designs -A-Few-of-My-Favourite-Things-Kit-Club.  

And oh my I loVes this months new kit from Sarah - she's soooo clever!!!!  It's all about moustaches!!!!  Sooooo on trend and up my street X
And there is this fab little wooden house!!! you must pop over and peep at for £6.99 (out of stock at the moment - not surprised as it's soooooo natty - but keep your eyes peeled as it's a must have) can't wait to decorate mine!!!!

Oh and i can't not tell you about the Vintage-Wooden-Spools!!!! - soooo darling again can't wait to get going with those too! A snip at £1.50 each and they are as tall as my thumb at least!!!

More extravagance!!!! (well not at Sarah's great prices - and her quality is second to none!!!)  
 Cos i purchased Sarah's adorable Girl Stamps!!!! all 3 sets -  the possibilities with these are endless - I fancy a little altered look for my first play session!!!

SO.....'s offering from me is something i designed and created last year and have never shown you so here goes x 

4 hearts (primitive shape) each decreasing in size nest on top of one another

I have distressed and inked the edges of all the hearts

I loVe to use different fabrics/ribbons/lace to add texture and visual excitment 

There is a mix of kraft card/patterned paper/glitter card and tissue paper that create all the different tiered hearts

My fav - a heart with wings

How different the wreath looks on a lighter background!

Hope you have enjoyed - I have a couple more wreaths that i designed and created to show you in my next couple of posts.........coming sooon (promise tee hee!)
