Hearts

I have been working on quite a few things today, but only managed to get one totally finished. These are the cards I made for a hearts swap over at Artsnthemail. Usually for a postcard swap I tend to come up with one design and run with it for the whole swap sometime varying colours slightly. This time round I decided to go with totally different designs all round.

The only thing I had decided on before I started was that my colour was going to be red. I decided to make the backgrounds from my own dyed fabric which is what started me off playing with the microwave yesterday. A while back I sorted most of my stash of embellishments into boxes by colour so I grabbed the red box went rummaging and these are the results. When I sit down and think about it it really is quite scary the amount of stuff that I have managed to accumulate in such a short time, I probably have enough stuff to keep me going for a couple of years without ever needing to buy another thing. Still there is always some new 'must have' out there tempting me to buy, lol.Some of these cards I like better than others but on the whole I think they have turned out quite well considering I didn't have any set ideas when I started out and just went with whatever appealed to me as I came across it in the 'box of red'.I'm feeling a bit better today than I have been so I might venture out and about to get some fresh air for the first time since Wednesday. Hopefully I will get time to finish up some of the other things I started today. I'm particularly excited about the pages I have been working on for the last round of the fabric book swap that I have been taking part in and hope to them finished up tomorrow.

Love all your valentine cards. It is fun sometimes to just 'go with the flow' when creating. Love all your microwave fabrics too :)

What a terrific collection - I really like all of them! That was an excellent exercise in creativity - to come up with that many ideas for one theme.
