The Heart is like a treasure chest

I made this card using one of my scrummy stamps from
second time I've used this adorable 'lost aussie' stamp, it makes me smile each time I use her..
the journaling reads
The heart is like a treasure chest that's filled with souvenirs
It's there we keep the memories we gather through the years
- author unknown.

other bit's I've used are - Chipboard twin frame, Crate Paper, Vintage Lace, dotty ribbon, Plastic flower & glass pearl beads, American Crafts mini marks rub-on, some more of my poor old copy of 'around the world in 80 days', and some other scraps of pp for the back of the frame & the little butterfly's dress, Versa Fine black ink, maria george crystal, and my sewing machine

Hello Gillian

I really love the journaling and would love to use it sometime, if you don't mind? It has inspired me to do a canvas about my mother.

Your work is fantastic. This has to be one of my very favourite blogs. :)
