Natalie & Amy's 'Love Is All Around' Challenge

Good morning all, I hope today finds you well and you are all keeping warm. I also hope Mr Blogger has played nicely and posted this for me while I am away visiting my daughter and getting lots of Mia cuddles, I cannot believe she is 2 months old already. 

Anyhow today see's a new challenge at Natalie & Amy's which is 'Love Is All Around' and you must use at least one heart on your creation. I thought I would have a go and see how I got on with colouring an image for this challenge but it was not the best idea, I am still finding it hard to hold the pens for any time and got quite frustrated with it. I will be seeing a new Neurology consultant on Saturday and hope he can shed some light on the matter.

So for my card I used a stamp I have had for a while from DoCrafts Me To You range called 'Loving Company', coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers and paired this with First Editions J'Adore patterned papers. I used a Kaisercraft stamp set called Just Believe for the calendar sentiment and coloured in the date with a Promarker. I added this really pretty hanging hearts style border which I cut on my Silhouette Cameo but it doesn't show up too well as I should have chose a solid coloured paper for it, I didn't have time to change it. Then just a couple of gems to finish it off. All supplies used are linked below to the Natalie & Amy Craft Shop
