Cupid Wall Hanger

Happy Monday,hope you had a great weekend.
Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our really lovely and talented Brenda has asked us to use a cricut heart or cupid this week.
Now,I was on a sorting mission and decided to empty and reorganise my walk in cupboard in my craft room. I have decided to sell or give to charity any older or unused craft items which I have collected over the last 11 years or so. Also to get rid of some of the packaging I keep to recycle.
Apparently I had managed to stow(read hoard) more stuff in that cupboard than we have in the loft!! So yesterday hubby painted the cupboard and this week is going to put shelving and a light in for me.
So when finished I can sort out and then eventually move onto my craft room drawers. It seemed such a good idea at the read chaos in my room!!
Also did my first ever craft fair at the weekend and it went really well...but more mess in my room!!
So Sunday afternoon and after eventually locating my cricut this is what I came up with.
I used Artiste for all cuts,hearts at 4.5" and 4",cupid at 2.5".
A little embossing,inking,enamelling and painting et voila!
My Creative Time for banner die and sentiment.
Just added a sparkly heart and lots of 3d foam.
This was so quick and easy to make(under 20 minutes) and I really like it!
Some of my lovely followers have asked for tutorials on certain techniques or projects and I promise to try and do some as soon as my craft room is sorted. (I am slightly OCD about mess!!! so this really should be sooner than later!!) can't promise it will be a video though!! I also plan to catch up with all my friends this week.
My talented DT sisters have some amazing projects to share with you so do check them out and come and join in our fun challenge.
Thanks for visiting and listening to my rambles!!
