Give us a Cuddle ...

Today is the launch of the new challenge over at 
this time round the title is 'Give Us A Cuddle' simple!

I have had this stamp by Penny Black for sometime and it was great
to colour in again for this challenge.  I have an old fashioned wooden version of this stamp
but it is available as a cling stamp HERE
This is my first complete card using my new Silhouette machine, pretty simply just
cut the heart jigsaw in this case, stamp the image and colour with Promarkers
and then carefully peel of the mat and assemble onto the card.
I have learnt so much with this machine, plenty of cutting and playing,
very impressed indeed.  Overall verdict, I love it!
Anyways I have also used papers, sentiment, flowers, more flowers, daisybrads
border, berries, crystal beads, jute and all hand stitched as always.
This turned out to be a large card 8x8 in fact because I needed to fit the 
ducks onto the heart and go from there.

This is a close up of the image and you might just work out
the glossy accents on the little duckies beaks?

The sentiment was easy 'You complete me' as this is something my Husband
has always said to me, awww bless.

I hope I have inspired you to come and play along with us, this week up for grabs
for one lucky winner is two gorgeous digi stamps from the lovely Krista
at the Saturated Canary, so what are you waiting for?

That is it for me today, I look forward to seeing all your creations
and don't forget you need to use a Letraset product and follow the 
theme to enter, good luck. x

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
Cutie Pie Challenge - Valentines (I won Top 3)!
Heck of a Challenge - Love is all around us ... (I won DT Fav)!
