Showing My Heart! Ruth's Turn

The weeks are certainly flying by and we are very nearly are at the end of February, and its also my turn to hopefully inspire you with the current challenge set by Jules which is

Show Us Your Heart!

Don't forget that you must include a Funky Hand element somewhere on your creation - this could be from one of the papercrafting cd's or a download or even one of the very new Our Betty stamps! For all the details on how to enter - click HERE for Jules original post which kicked the Funky Fifteenth off.

I've used papers from Craft The Year Away, which matched perfectly with the Funky Freebie for February - I've managed to work the freebie papers in too - can you spot where?!

I've used one of my own templates to make the bag which comes complete with its own Queen & Co fastener and a random brad I found in my stash. The seed beads are also from my stash and I've made the layered flower with a New Year sale purchase of a Sizzix layered flower die and glossy accents added to the hearts.

If you don't own any Funky Hand products there is always a freebie which will complement the month's theme - you can find this month's HERE.

Good luck with the challenge!


  1. Glossy Accents..they have made the heart look fantastic! A fantastic card as always Ruth. I always look forward to seeing what great creations you make.

  3. A gorgeous card! Love the detailing of the seed beads and that flower die is fab! :) Ni

  4. Hello Ruth,
    This is my first visit to your lovely blog but not the last as I am now following you. I am a crafter too and have decided to do a bit of crafty blog hopping to meet other people just like me. I love these cards linked up they are really beautiful, I don't think I am up to this standard though!
    If you have a few minutes spare I would be delighted if you could pop by and say hello.
