Felt inspiration

Aah, don't you just love Saturday mornings!! This is the first weekend this year I've been at home and it just feels like such a luxury to have a whole weekend stretched ahead of me - now I just need to fill it productively!!

In spite of a very busy week I did manage a bit of crafting a few days ago - I've been SO excited about Papertrey Ink's big countdown as part of their 3rd Anniversary. So many exciting new products!

I'm particularly excited about the felt - so in anticipation of getting my mitts on some PTI felt (Aqua Mist felt... ooh, my heart's all a flutter!!), I reached for my felt collection and used my heart nestabilities to create an embellishment for a card based on this Card Positioning System's current sketch challenge:

Mmmm, don't you just LOVE those Jenni Bowlin mini papers!! I bought them about a year ago and have finally made myself cut into them.... doing my best to break my hoarding tendency!!


Card - Stamper's Select White/Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Paper - Jenni Bowlin
Other - Felt/heart Nestabilities/Dark Chocolate ribbon and button (PTI)

I hope you have a fun and productive weekend!!

Hugs Kate xx

Oh Kate this is fantastic, those papers are gorgeous and your little felt hearts look stunning (might case this card with those little felt hearts you sent me !!!). I haven't made a valentines card yet so this is the perfect design!!
Enjoy your free weekend.

Now be careful not to drool over your Aqua Mist Felt when it reaches you! LOL!
Glad you finally cut into that paper, it looks fabulous as does your embellishment! Such a sweet card!
Have a fab weekend, hun!
