My entry for the 'Moving' Challenge over at Floral Fantasies

Hello to all my wonderful followers!

Over at Floral Fantasies there is a fun Sir Stampalot challenge and blog hop with fantastic prizes up for grabs!! Why not pop over and take a look? 

The challenge is to make a project of your choice and to incorporate 'MOVING'.  Your project can be a card, box, scrapbook page, and the theme is open to interpretation, moving home, kinetic card, vehicle or as simple as a dangling charm as long as it represents movement.  You could win a Sizzix Big Shot! WOW!

The blog hop consists of 10 beautiful blogs to visit, and you can even win prizes along the way!

Here is my entry for the Moving Challenge:




I was making a card for my OH for Valentines Day and thought I would add some movement in order for me to enter this challenge!! I got my inspiration from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine which had a feature on Valentine cards and I just made it into my own design.  The heart, which spins around, is made up of 3 hearts folded in half and stuck together with a piece of silver thread running through the middle.  I got my backing papers for free from Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine.  They always give away the best selection of papers!  All in all, i'm quite pleased with the end result, considering it was my first ever movement card of its kind!

Hope you all like it, and if you enter this challenge, (which you really should!!) lots of luck!

Best wishes,
