Hearts Galore!

Over the next week I have a feeling hearts are going to become ever more popular! It is the theme for Gothic Arches this week, and I have created this arch using stamps from Magnolia, Prima, & B Line, punches form Woodware, Distress inks, chalk eyes and markers to colour images. The hearts are cut out and curled to make them 3D then added with foam pads to raise them off the surface, black cotton being added as the balloon strings.

I would like the thank everyone for their thoughts of well wishes over the last few days, I have my house secure and am now waiting for the insurance to be finalised and quotes for new items. I am feeling more settled again, after having a great weekend - Saturday spent in the company of some great friends, and today spent chilling out and getting a bit of crafting in. Here's to a good week ahead!
