A card caught my eye this morning, doing exactly the job it was intended to do! It was a DT card for the challenge at The Card Concept
Here is the challenge     
 and this was the card which inspired me! 
I didn't have any heart dies with 'stitching' so I used a stitched strip die to emboss the marks on both the card and the hearts.
I believe that the friend die can be obtained from Aliexpress.
Well speaking of friends... there's a friend of many out there called Di, of the famous Pixie's Playground where snippets are the focus of everything!
She has been running her challenge now for many a year and encourages us all to use up all those bits and bobs which would otherwise be tossed! I always have heaps as I never like to throw anything away.. hence the clutter in my craft room. All the little die cuts are from my snippets drawer!
I was lucky enough to meet Di IRL some time ago when Darnell was over this side of the pond for her famous English Tour! It was such fun actually meeting people face to face whom we have only known via the internet. 
Darnell is doing a tribute Blog Hop for Di hereso do take a peek and join in the fun!
Long may your challenge continue Di!

  4. How beautiful, great design with the heart flowers and embossing!

  5. I just love how you added the stitching to your background as well as all those colorful hearts! This is a perfect card to honor Di and I know she'll love it :)

  6. What a cool design, Chrissie! A perfect CASE and a winning take on the challenge! You know I have one of those straight line stitched dies and I would never have thought to do this with it. Now I can't think how ELSE one would use it! Thank you, as always, for the inspiration! And thank you so much for joining in this Hop to thank Di for all she does! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Oh Chrissie, it means so much that you joined in. I loved the time we spent in Southampton, before and after then learned about Less is More cards from you - ha, you once slapped my wrists for not grounding an image! And am paranoid about getting music the right way up. You were and still are one of my greatest inspirations - and I thank YOU in return! Again, thank you so, so much for joining in the blog hop organised by dear Darnell and also for your really kind words! I'm still quite overcome here! (Shares in Kleenex would be good right now!)
