Happy New Year and a New Flowers challenge at MAWTT

Good morning all

A belated Happy New Year from me!
it hasn't got off to a good start so far - I've had an ear infection since New Years Eve
 - so I'm feeling a bit of a misery at the moment!

But it's not all bad- New Year - New Start and all that and I'm feeling positive : )

It's time for our first challenge of the year over at

Moving along with the Times

and our theme for this challenge is


Always one of my favourite themes - a card for every occasion- and I have loads of flower dies!!

I made this card for my Mother in law's birthday - she was 89 years young on Boxing Day so definitely a special card was called for!

I used the Poppy Collection from Heartfelt Creations to make this card - so pretty and as with all the Heartfelt collections everything goes together so easily to make a card.

I also used the new basic floral shaping mold  from heartfelt (the ones that came out just before Christmas)  - this is a fab tool - you could use it with most die cut flowers to give some depth and dimension to your flowers without the time and effort that most flower shaping tools take - i love it!

and the inside also matches

This is what I did......

Papers, dies and stamps from the Heartfelt Poppy collection
Flowers shaped with the new Heartfelt floral basics shaping mold
Poppy and leaves coloured with distress inks
MAM- cut with Tim Holtz alphabet dies from Sizzix 
8x8 inch card 
Sentiment stamp inside from Anna Griffin

Hope you can play along with us this time
over at the Moving along with the Times Challenge blog
see you soon

A beautiful card and I love all the matching elements. I get regular emails from Heartfelt but haven't yet ordered from them. I have enough stuff to last me a lifetime and I keep thinking, no more. I might be tempted now. Hazel x
