Well. today is the last day of the current paperblooms design team. i have been so fortunate to have worked along side ann jacque tina and cassie. they are just the sweetest caring ladies and so bursting with talent. each week i was amazed at their work. i will miss them on PB.
on a bright note.. i was asked if id like to stay on with the new DT and of course i said YES!!! how lucky am i! i just adore leah , a living angel, and so love her crocheted embellies.
there are 2 new ladies, rose miller and christi bryant. i now roses' work quite well and have been fortunate to have her as a friend. christie is new to me, after checking out her blog i KNOW why leah chose her... be sure to check out both of these ladies fantastic work!
also be sure to come play along with us. we are now a bi~weekly challenge. that gives you more time to create AND each month we're having guest design spots.. so you could be our featured player! woo hoo!!!! how fun would that be!
this week our project was just make anything that inspires us. well as you can tell by most of my cards i have this pathetic sappy sappy side to me ( i keep my evil twin locked inside most of the time ;) ) so love, caring and warmness inspire me. i have received all of that a hundred times over in my life so my project reflects that feeling. plus.... a couple of pics of my handsome sweetieboy were right in front of me as i was creating so hearts and that girlie looooooong sigh was on my mind ( do ya still get that feeling over your partner? over 4 years and i still do every single time i look at him.. yep even when id like to kick him that love shines through lol )
so what i did to make this... i found some twig stuff at a craft store and shaped it into a heart...i have bought some of these hearts pre~made before but always like to recreate those finds.. yay me i did it!
i added these sweet blooms leah crocheted, added a couple of buttons, some pins, lace ribbon ( i love this stuff!!) a cuttlebug butterfly that i cut using mulberry paper. i also used my cricut and opposites attract cartridge for the word love..
i hope you have a great day and dont forget to hop on over to paperblooms and give a sweet farewell to the ladies. hugs shelly

Shelly this is the most gorgeous project EVER! Paper Blooms are the perfect embellishment for such a romantic and beautiful heart! Congrats on remaining on the DT. I can't imagine it without you. Yes, the incurable romantic side of you is what we usually see but I get quite a kick out of the evil twin too. LOL Hugs, D
