Hearts A-Flutter

 DSC02357_edited-2

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see a silhouette—especially during Valentine season—my heart goes all pittery-pattery…

…so I had lots of fun with this one!  Simple to make, but it really makes me happy.

A little bit of ribbon & some vintage “cherry” buttons finish it off—easy peasy!

If you visit me very often, you know that I’m always inspired by my wonderful Mother…

…and here she is, inspiring me again!  While I was looking through a bunch of old family photos the other day, this sweet little school days photo just jumped out at me—young Karen with HEARTS on her adorable jumper…perfect!

So, a little card was made with Mom as the focal point—not sure if I’ll be able to part with it or not!

Wishing you a day filled with glittery Valentines,  sweet flowers…and a heart all a-flutter.
