L.O.V.E.... What's That Spell?

Happy Monday! We have a new challenge for you up on the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner We've got love letters on our minds. Will you make a card with heart? Create a journal entry about someone (or something) you love? Perhaps use vintage postage as your latest inspiration… whatever inspires you – we can’t wait to see your love letters!

With the arrival of our fourth girl in just a matter of weeks, we are getting things ready around here. And that includes her name too, of course. While it remains a secret until her arrival, it will start with an “O,” which combined with the initials of her sisters we have four little ladies that spell “LOVE.”

So, with that in mind... let's create a little home decor piece!

First up, I have some basic white muslin that I have sketched some hearts on and splattered and spritzed with all sorts of fun things:
 With that dry, it's time for some stencil action...
 And some stamping...
Then, I simply cut and stitched around my sketched hearts, making sure to leave an opening for stuffing...
 There may or may not have been an old teddy bear sacrificed for the cause of this art...

Now that these hearts are all stuffed and stitched... it's time to add some more color! First, just some simple watercolor. Then, lots of little bits and cut-outs added...
...until I had all my hearts ready to go! Wondering about those letters? Simple Grunge board... I wrote the letters, cut them out and painted them. Easy peasy!
A lovely little stick from the back yard...
LOVEly little hearts...
Baby "O," we can't wait to meet you!
So, how will you interpret this fun "love" challenge? Can't wait to see what you make!

Go get crafty and link-up with us!

  24. Hello i am Mark Rebecca am from United Kingdom I am so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage. Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr. ONIHA, she said he uses white magic spells to solve spiritual problems. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 to 3 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 to 3 days of the spell, my husband was confessing different names of woman he has slept with. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. And am so happy to have him for myself alone. The spell caster’s contact is:

I had a problem with my Ex husband 2years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not my self again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine Lucy told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr kume at . I email Dr kume the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr kume for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is you are the best among all the spell caster online I hope you see my testimonies and also pray for my family too.
