Anyone who had a Heart !

Hi, hope everyone in the UK is enjoying the fab weather, oooh I hope it lasts....have had enough of gloomy skies and rain this year.


I made this pendant attached by black ribbon to an ATC for the July challenge at Smudger which is Hearts.

Products used:  Tim Holtz Fragment, Glossy Accents and Acrylic Paints.  The image Helmet Girl was supplied by Andrea of Smudgemastic and printed on Canvas which I stamped with a couple of Hearts.  The ATC has been embossed and smeared with Black Stazon.


My second piece for the same challenge is an ATC, again the background has been embossed and swiped.  The Diecut was a gift (so don't know the name or make)  and the image is Heart Fairy also supplied by Andrea which I coloured and added Stickles.  Thank you Andrea for some great digi's.

Am also entering Helmet Girl into the new challenge blog The Vintage Artisans - Vintage Steampunk

To my total joy my Mother (87) is at long last out of Hospital, she will have to have a day nurse visit her each day and Mum is staying with Jill and Mike (my sister in law and brother) for the rest of the week.  This is a picture of her taken a little while ago before going into hospital and wanted to share her with you.


Hoping you all have a terrific week, am feeling so much happier now Mum is OK.  Take care of yourselves and each other, hugs Annette x
