Hanging Hearts


It's Mother's Day tomorrow and our little one will be four weeks old. It's been a roller coaster of emotions for us. It started with hospital and midwife visits which didn't seem to end. My recovery took longer than I had anticipated. Luckily, my in-laws and a family friend visited us two weeks ago for which I will be forever grateful. They taught us everything we need to know as new parents.

I haven't been crafting for myself lately but managed to squeeze in a few commissions for Becky and Lee from Papercraft Essentials. Before Ellie was born, I started making cards to say Thank You for the baby gifts we would receive. I only finished three of them. Not sure if I'll continue with the same design or come up with something different.

To make the hearts, I dabbled distress inks on a clear sheet, then pressed white cardstock onto it, spritzed it with water and dried it with the heat gun. I like using hearts in my designs and stamped some sentiments from a Stampin Up! set onto them. The "Thanks" sentiment is also from Stampin Up! The hearts are attached to an acetate window which I embossed with hearts.

Happy Mother's Day!
