Allsorts Challenge 60 - July Love

Hey it's me again.....I think my little away day trip to Simply Create yesterday has done the trick.....time to share another card I made for the challenge this week over at Allsorts....just because I felt like it....not a deadline in sight...does this mean that the crafty mojo is coming back.
And for this week's challenge - show your love by having a HEART on your project....and not a teeny tiny piece in one corner....let the heart be the focus point....let your love show

Stampin Up Kraft Paper over stamped with two of my favourite stamps
Hero Arts: Heart Flourish stamped with Versamark and embossed with Detail White
Old Letter Writing stamped with TH Distress Ink....Brushed Corduroy
Hearts cut from Coredinations..Whitewash Collection
overstamped with Hero Arts: Floral Brocade
Lace and Pearl Pins from Stash
Prima Flowers
Sentiment: TH Adage Ticket
TH Idea-ology Snaps

and talking of LOVE.....oh boy did I have the loveliest day yesterday with two of the nicest girls from craftyland.....my lovely buddie Anne who will be keeping me stocked up with Stampin Up goodies and the Queen of All Things Promarkers Debbi...

coffee...cake...chat... lots of laughter...lunch (thanks Anne)...more coffee and chat and boy did we get the giggles when one of the customers who had attended one of Debbi's classes thought that I was Debbi's MUM... "excuse me" was my first reaction and then shock horror when we did the maths it turns out I could be.  As the afternoon wore on I'm sure Anne was beginning to think we were staying overnight and you can't spend 5 hours in a craft shop without having a bit of a spend.....well you know the feeling folks....it would have been rude not to...that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Thank you girls for your wonderful company.....luvs you lots and can't wait until the next time.....and if you want to meet up with some lovely crafty folks and live within driving distance of Simply Create....why don't you come along to 

on Wednesday 28th July 1-3pm or 7-9pm

give the shop a call on 019755 64010 to guarantee getting your bum on a seat because places are limited and join in some Simply Create fun....now I don't want to scare anybody away.....but I'm going and would love to see you there.
Must dash.... I have a deadline to meet....yes that altered box that is still sitting untouched on my desk...can't let my buddies over at WOYWW down....so it's going to be a Tim Holtz inky and alterations kind of a day.....catch up with you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: Need your help today folks.....just had a plea from Lily....she is having trouble finding Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Alteration.....I have had a quick skoot around but out of stock everywhere....if you know where it can be found....please leave a comment here and put poor Lily out of her misery
