Sweetie Pie & Historic Day xxx

LOVE these hearts xxx
This is one of the cards I did for the next Making Hand Made Cards launch - the new e-kit, which is coming out soon, is called Sweetie Pie.

It is really sweet, I have to say, and there are loads of colours included. This one is made using the more traditional Valentine colours, and the hearts and sentiments are included in the kit.

I cut some of the hearts out and stuck them onto a strip of acetate, then raised the whole thing up on foam pads. I doodled dots round the outside using a white gel pen to match the gorgeous spotty ribbon which I got from the ever so fabulous Poppicrafts.

You can maybe see better from the skew wifty angle here lol xx

I am posting early today cos I have been glued to the telly and I am just waiting for the Inauguration of President Obama. There are events that have happened in my lifetime which have massive historical interest, such as the deaths of Kennedy and Diana, a new millenium, and now this.


I really believe that this man can bring hope to us all, and not just to the American people. He has such charisma and is one of the most skillful communicators I think I have ever heard.

The Reverend Martyn Luther King had a dream.
Maybe today we are all seeing that dream beginning to come true.

Awesome xxxx

Lovely card for valentines Dawny....I love the hearts to.

Like you I am placing a lot of my hopes and dreams in Obama.....have you seen his eyes, he seems an honest man who is focused. In his speech he mentioned the heating up of our planet....please let him be the man to put things on track.......
