I hope you are all having a lovely weekend .. .. a real mixed bag of weather here but a nice day for crafting.
My card is my festive make for this week and is for taking over to Jo's "Christmas Kickstart Challenge #5" and is one for the serious heart searchers. Its not quite so easy to spot today .. .. or am I wrong?!!?.
The theme for Jo's challenge this fortnight is "Have a Very Bear-y Christmas" and there are still two days left to enter. I was running out of time for my make this week so went for a lovely pre-coloured image from Polkadoodles.
I always feel I am cheating when I use a pre-coloured image but need to stop feeling like that because everything in this collection was of such a high quality that it was a real pleasure to play with. The backing papers in the set and the sentiments are gorgeous!! They are so lovely I am going to have to investigate what else is available. There was no needing to print in "high quality" either .. .. they printed perfectly just on a standard setting.
So this is my offering:
Image, Sentiment and Backing Paper is all from Polkadoodles "Winne Winterland - Big Kahuna" digital download. I bought mine whilst it was on offer just after Christmas.

Many thanks for all your lovely comments yesterday regarding the stitching on my cards. You are all very kind.
These days no card feels right without some form of stitching on it .. .. and it has even crept into my wedding work now .. .. and is proving to be very popular. I have just finished a wedding where all the place names, table names and even the table plan was stitched. I was really pleased with it .. .. as was the bride and her Mum (I never did meet the groom LOL!!).
Anyway, best go and link my card up and put Christmas Card number 12 into my stock box.
So did you find the heart? I do think there have been harder ones to find!
