F with a twist

It is time for the Craft Barn alpha/dictionary challenge. I’m sneaking this one in only a smidgeon ahead of the deadline! We had to come up with something beginning with the letter ‘F’ but there had to be a heart in the mix somewhere. My first heart didn’t show up as a proper defined heart so had to add a small line of green hearts at the top right corner.

I was also able to use up a few things from my craft stash that have been hanging around for more years than I care to think about! The three fans and the gold string beads have been lurking in a drawer for too long.

Stamp – Stamp Addict and small heart was a free stamp from Craft Stamper magazine.

Q & L #8

Here I am skimming in by the skin of my teeth! Broadband connection has not been playing well lately so words will need to be had with someone.

Thank you to everyone who commented on Q&L #7, so many lovely comments which were much appreciated. I don’t think I am going to get the chance to comment on many this time.

Okay enough drivel – the words over on the Craft Barn challenge are Hurt and/or Knowledge. For the song lyrics I chose Love hurts by the Everly Brothers although many people sang this including Jim Capaldi, Cher, Nazareth and Roy Orbison, I think we have three versions of this song and like all of them.

The actual card isn’t as pale as the photo shows and you may just be able to see the little bird’s tears.
