For once I made I creation without coloring. I think not all of you love to color and so I wanted to show you how to make a lovely project, a great little gift, with one of the sweet stamps from Whiff of Joy made in not much time and without coloring...

I used this sweet little owl, stamped it with brown ink and only paper pieced the heart with some red cardstock. The lovely doily is a new Die-Light available very soon.

Another new Die-Light are the cutlery. Love them!! The have a little die cutted heart at the holders and so great to add them into a ribbon or twine as I did how you can see on my photo below... The sentiment I used here is from the 'Kalorienreich' set.

Your next stop is COLLEEN's blog.

Now we look very much forward seeing you joinin us. Wish you a...

Wish you a happy day now! Thank you for your visit here.

I also used some Die-Light for my card; the 'Notebook Border', the flower is made with the 'Nested Flowers II' and I also used one of the new 'Nested Tags'. I also embellished my card with some snowwhite Half-Pearls.
