It's all hearts

Hi there. Well between my wife and my daughter hogging the computer I have hardly got a look in today!
But I kept myself busy with a wall hanging that I picked up at The Range the other weekend. Nice and inexpensive and just crying out for attention! And since the Stamp man Challenge is hearts  and The Artistic Stamper is LOVE IS IN THE AIR it all worked out well.
So here is my entry; it started out life like this
In the end it looks like this!
I used Crafty Individuals papers, Forest moss and aged mahogany distress inks, embossed letter tiles, gold paint and  n old piece of jewellery. I kept it simple as the papers are just so beautiful, I just overstamped a script and flourish  stamp.
Sometimes I think we just need to remind ourselves to be joyful  to appreciate and enjoy the blessngs we have so this hanging will hang there to remind me to


Be blessed.... I'll be back later to draw the winner of my 100 follower gift...... so see you later!

Neil this is a wonderful piece of art with a beautiful sentiment. It's so easy to get bogged down with life and sometimes we just need to be reminded how very fortunate we are. A truly beautiful way to do just that!
