Sweet Love

Happy Monday.  It's time for a new challenge over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  Our lovely Jane has chosen the theme and she's asking that we all use some felt this week.

I've used  Swings and Slides - Sweet Love Set on my card.  Aren't these little kids just the cutest?  This image is one of the newest releases and you can find it over in the Pollycraft shop today.  I colored this cute couple with copics and colored pencils and added a little Glamour Dust to their ice cream.  I used a die to cut out my clouds, sponged a little ink around the edges, and then stitched them with some embroidery floss.  The sentiment is also included in this set and I've added a little heart brad.  Please be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the DT.

I hope you play along in our challenge this week.  We're being sponsored by Crimson Cloud. 

And the winner of the Swings and Slides Lil Monster from the Pollycraft blog hop we had last week is
