LIM challenge week 36

 I must first just say how shocked & pleased
I was to be chosen as the September winner
at 'Less is More'. So many talented LIMettes
there now I am most humbled! A big thankyou
to Chrissie & Mandi,I am most grateful.
I hope to show you the goodies I get & cards
I make with them  at a later date :O)

It's week 36 now over at 'Less is More',
and this week it's the dreaded one layer card.
The theme is to use a  heart/hearts.

The can be singular, multiple, any colour,
but, MUST be a one layer card, with no
additional layers stuck on, apart from the
odd embellishment or ribbon!
( Do I get an extra LIMy point for noticing
the missing d in additional?).....maybe not....
might just be a slap eh !!!!!

I decided to revisit an idea I used a while ago.
I used a stamp I had scanned ages ago ( can't
find it now so lucky I scanned it). I often scan
them as they are easier to use sometimes.That
was before I got happy with stamping too.So I
printed the word stamp then added a sentiment
above the heart so it looks as if it is hanging. It
says ' True Love never fails' btw. if you can't
make it out. I liked the font as it was a bit
ribbon like I thought. I then sponged distress ink
over a nestie heart using it as a template. I
then used two bits of scrap card to make a
template to sponge a line over the sentiment also.
I added the pink heart as I felt it needed something
to add a little interest......still not sure about it
though & wish it was a tad smaller too.
Sorry for the long post I was rambling today I think!!

ps. I have more baby seems we are
expecting not one but two grandbaby boys :O) As
they are expected to be born only about 4 weeks
apart I think they will be such great friends & cousins.
Lots of blue knitting now for me!!!!

Computer generated font ( top bit) Albermarle End Swash

  6. Crikey I really must have more heart stamps than I thought... I was just commenting to Lynne how many I had and now I see your card I realise that I have the rubber stamp of your heart shaped sentiment too... I'd forgotten about that one!
