Heartfelt Greetings

The Sunday Stamper - TIME.
Simon Says Stamp and Show - some EMBOSSING.
Compendium of Curiosities -RUSTED ENAMEL, page 41 of the book.
The Play Date Cafe - Inspiration photo below.
A combination of challenges this week just to fit everything in once again.  I have created three pieces this time around as I had a little more time to play.
The rusted enamel technique has been applied to my small heart at the top, subtle I know but I have used the technique LOL.  My time element is Tim's Idea-ology clock piece at the top and I added the text TIME FOR LOVE to fit in with The Sunday Stamper theme and Simon Says Stamp and Show some embossing and I have embossed both hearts, the one with the button added and the one at the top of the page again very subtle, but sometimes less is more and I have used the colour challenge for The Play Date Cafe.
I also created a second card for The Play Date Cafe challenge.
I attended one of Sarah Anderson's workshops at the weekend and we worked on texture in our pieces so I thought I would use one of the techniques to add texture to my heart shaped box.
I just need some chocolates to add to the box and this would make an ideal small gift for my son on Valentine's.  Thanks for stopping by.  Tracy x x

What gorgeous art, Tracy! The rusted enamel heart looks gorgeous, and the card you designed around it is am amazing work of valentine art! I love the stitching, and the splatter pattern is so cool!

You second card is great as well. The crackled heart is such a great embellishment. And, that sweet, heart-shaped treasure box is precious!
