Hearts, Hearts and Hearts

Thought I would try something a little different this week for The Play Date Cafe and had a go at needle felting, great fun apart from stabbing my hands with the needle several times, that's what comes from being an amateur LOL.  I am also adding the heart pieces to The Stampman Challenge which this time around is a HEARTS THEME.
I needle felted a heart and my background is sprayed with Memories Mists using a Prima mask.
I also created this heart gift tag to add to a gift bag.
Along with this simple bracelet for my 10 year old daughter Laura.
Our inspiration are the colours above in this wonderful picture, very shabby chic.  Just a quick post from me today as it is time for me to dig over the allotment and I think it's going to take every ounce of energy I have left LOL.  Enjoy your weekend, Tracy xx

Very different Tracy and I love these pieces. I haven't used felt like this so I am interested in finding out more. The texture of the heart is fabulous.

Love how you can turn your hand to such diverse things. Hope you are working up an appetite on your allotment - spring must be on the way - besides, our postman was back in his shorts today!
