Here we are with another fabulous challenge at


The challenge is "Have A Heart"

We are sponsored by

Prize: 3 single digital images

Prize: $25 gift certificate

Prize: 3 images

I received this image from Lemon Shortbread.  She is called "Heart of Roses".  When I saw the image I knew I had to do a shaker card.  I had the perfect little hearts to go inside it too.  I have had these so long I don't even know where I got them.  

After I colored her and fussy cut the image, I decided the card needed to be CAS.  I have never left this much white space on a card before and it is only one layer.  I took the picture on a red background and it kind of looks like the card is red but it's entirely a white card.

I am a nanny for some kids on a job I took recently.  There are five kids but only three young ones.  The two younger girls are 11 and 9.  They like crafts too so I showed them the card and they just begged me to make a card with them too.  Since I'm only there for about three hours a day it has taken quite a while for them to finish their cards.  They are just about done.  I was hoping to add their cards to this post but we have one more day of crafting to finish them.  I will put their cards up when they are done.

I hope you will join us in the challenge this fortnight and don't forget to stop by the DT and give them some love.
