Something Special :)

This is my 100th post!! A bit of a milestone for me lol !

Ive been really struggling with my card making mojo this past week, which is extremely annoying as I have four cards to make for birthdays next week!!!

So I decided to make something a bit different.

 I bought a load of wooden hearts from ebay last October and hadn't really used them so thought I'd make something special for my Gran who had an operation last Friday.

I covered it in white acrylic paint as it was quite a dark colour then used pearl paint on the back and the sides. I then cut round the heart with my craft knife (very carefully!) and stuck the paper to the front.

I printed the sentiment off the computer and cut up each individual word then glazed them with Diamond Glaze as I thought it made the words look a bit interesting.

(Just to show the size)

What I have used:
Wooden heart
Paper no 9 from 'Cute As A Button' set from Raspberry Road
Diamond Glaze
Computer generated sentiment
WOC small rose
Double Daisies
White and Pearl Paint   
Pearl Mist
Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
Small pearls

I'm yet to give it to Gran as every time Ive tried to go up shes not been up to having visitors bless her but I'm hoping to 'pop in' this afternoon as I'm at work all weekend.

I have a few ideas for more of these as I really enjoyed making it!

Back to the grind I go lol.
Oh and if anyone sees my mojo kicking about please send it my way - thanks in advance! Lol.
