All we need is love...

Good day everyone! Hope you´re enjoying the weekend. Now when I´m working part time I really do enjoy my weekend mornings, I can have my morning cup of coffee and read the papers in my bed. Today I also had a crispy cookie with safron and almonds, mmm. The joy of not needing to rush to work!

I struggled with this card a few days, I wanted to make an image with a tree with heartshaped leaves, but it went straight to the bin. So the card ended up without no image at all!

Decorpapers: computer printed notes on vellum, you can find free notes on the web to print out. Let the vellum dry for a day, it smears awfully the first day.
I made the other paper with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls. All paper distressing is also made with Distress Inks.
Paper pieces from a dictionary.
Stamps: flourish, sentiment and frame are Tim Holtz.
Tools: unstitch tool for distressing, QK photo corner die, flower and heart punch are Panduro.
Embellies: Rangers Liquid Pearls, ribbon and gems are from a blogfriend (thanks Yvonne!)

A Spoon Full of Sugar: lots of layers.

Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Chellenges: no image.

Cupcake Craft Challenges: the lovely sketch to follow, thanks Kathrin, it´s fab!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: punch it!

Warm hugs,
