Hearts and Roses

Good morning to all my friends and  followers and  a special welcome today to  my latest follower Kelly thank you for following my blog,
Its that Wednesday again today so its the start of a new monthly Anything Goes Challenge over at Crafting by Designs,
We have a couple of great sponsors this time;

Prize - choice of 1 bundle, b/w or colored

Fred She Said 

Prize - $10 gift certificate to store

I decided to use a lovely stamp called Hearts and Roses from Fred She Said for my Design Team card, I also made a heart shape card using a Dutch Doobadoo stencil I got at Christmas. The stamp is the whole heart shape not just the flowers so it fit really well on the stencil
