Spotty, dotty CBS Love Hearts... :)

Hello there folks!! :)

How are you all doing? Hope everyone's well and enjoying the lovely weather we've been having?! I have very much enjoyed it but the heat does ramp up the M.E. symptoms a bit so my body's been on even more of a go-slow lately and I have just had to take it easy... hence my lack of posts!!lol But... I'm here at last with a quick last-minute card for the second Clearly Besotted challenge, which is 'Seeing Spots'...

I played with the fab Love Hearts set and matching dies for this one and made another coloured blank with my Papermill cardstock :) I've never been the world's biggest fan of red in any area of life/aesthetics but I am definitely coming around to it in crafting and think a pop of red with black & white is a fairly firm favourite colour-combo for me these days :)

I die cut the negatives first then fixed the two separately stamped hearts behind the panel with foam pads, then added a bit of Xmas Red Stickles for a bit of interest and sparkle!! :)

{The List}
A6 top-fold card blank and white card - Black Smooth and White Linen from Papermill Direct
Stamps - Clearly Besotted Stamps - Love Hearts and matching dies
Inks - Memento - Tuxedo Black, London Fog, Ladybug
Twine form The Ribbon Girl
Xmas Red Stickles

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges: Clearly Besotted Challenge #2 - Seeing Spots :) ; ATSM - Addicted to CAS :) ; Addicted to CAS - Glitter :)

Well, I did say it would be a quick post and I'm in need of a rest as I've been as busy as the heat's allowed the last few days with a wedding card order- which I have had on my to-do list for what feels like forever but have been totally creatively-blocked on as the colours were so far out of my comfort zone (bright pink, yellow and orange!!lol)- and I finally finished it last night (Yay!!) but it has worn me out so I'm off to my bed!! Would've been there already but I have been attempting to show my mum how to use her new mobile- which is actually my old one as she dropped hers and broke it last week and I was ready for an upgrade... this way we're both getting 'New' phones- though mum's done better out of the deal on the price front having the hand-me-down!!lol So... thanks for stopping by and I'll hopefully be back before too long!! :)
