First post of 2011

A Happy New year to you, it's a bit late I know, but I hope you all had a good beginning to the year.

We had a death on New Year's Day in our family so I haven't felt like blogging over the last few weeks. Things should return to normal soon and I plan to be involved in blogland again hope to draw many more freebies for you to download during 2011.

In the mean time I want to share some cards I have made for Valentine's day using a fantastic tutorial I saw on Valita's Designs & fresh folds blog... using hearts. I will show my cards to you first and give you a link at the bottom of this post otherwise you will go there and not want to come back Lol!!.. her blog is addictive heheh Lol!... so here is a taster of how she inspired me..
I used some mini mosaics on her dress because I thougth they looked just like little sequins.. I used the Tim Holtz floral alteration die cutting red organza for the flowers.

Valita show us how to shade the heart like this.. it's great fun!

This is a simple wedding card using the heart idea... I used some lovely holographic card for her dress and drew squiggles with a glue pen and added glitter for a wonderful sparkle.. it looks like a diamonte encrusted bodice.

Well, as promised here is the link to Valita's fantastic inspiring blog with her own video tutorial for these hearts... Thanks for visiting today.. remember to leave me a comment if you are going to before to get hooked on her blog... LOL!!
Hugs to you all
