Say it with Words

I hope you week has been as invigorating as mine. Busy, busy,, parents evening, pattern designing and of course card-making.
I might have to ban birthdays for a couple of weeks....exhausting 😁 

So we have a fabulous challenge for you this week over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.

Our challenge this week is  

Valentines - "Say it with Words"
(your project must contain words or a sentiment)

Our Fabulous sponsor is

Bio about this relatively young company:
Mama Makes is all about preserving memories and sending positivity through crafting. These stamps are perfect for cardmaking, journaling and scrapbooks. They are a perfect combination of modern, quirky and the perfect size for a multitude of projects. Mama Makes originally started as a craft blog in 2014, while Loti was on maternity leave. On Mother’s Day 2017, Mama Makes opened as a store selling Loti’s designs as photopolymer stamps. You might have seen the stamps as part of Katie Skilton and Paula Pascual’s demos on Hochanda or maybe in Papercrafter and Die Cutting Essentials magazine!
Loti Maria has been creative ever since she was a small girl watching Art Attack in her bedroom! This passion evolved over the years and was reignited when she was on maternity leave with her son, Charlie and found herself watching craft shopping television.
She then went onto work in craft shopping television and one day was offered something she couldn’t refuse, a chance to make her doodles, into photopolymer stamps, to sell. The rest is history!

 Now for the sharing part, I have gone for a simply understated look.
The image and text are from Mama Makes, I used foampads on the figures but simply glued the sentiment to the ribbon. 
The background paper I discovered in the back of my understair cupboard only the other day (no idea where I got it or how long ago). 
The flower is a few die-cuts, differing sizes, which I coloured using Promarkers (Satin & Blush). 
The stripy ribbon I found in the bottom of my ribbon bag, seemed almost made for this paper so I just had to use it. 
Of course not forgetting the little wooden Dove.

I have made myself a promise to start using up some of my older stash at every opportunity...not sure how long that will last 😉

 Back soon with more sharing
Don't forget to visit our lovely design team and leave some love.

Hugs & happy thoughts
