Wooden Heart

The current challenge on the Ready Steady Stamp blog is to create something using at least three of the specified ingredients as shown in their scroll below.

Ooh a wooden heart - "Can't you see I love you, please don't break my heart in two, that's not hard to do, 'cause I don't have a wooden heart"   Well, Elvis may not have had one but luckily I did and it measures approx 4" x 4" just the right size for a little wall hanging.  The angel is printed paper, the hanger is ribbon, the two beads on the hanger are black and there is lace around the edge of the wooden heart.  The stamped wording was embossed with white/silver embossing powder.  The background of the heart is a mixture of acrylic paint and mica powders so it is quite shimmery although it doesn't show up very well in the photos.  The colours white and turquoise are in there somewhere under the layers!

I've now got Elvis in my head (never a bad thing!) so here's some more

"There's no strings upon this love of mine
It was always you from the start
Treat me nice, Treat me good
Treat me like you really should

'Cause I'm not made of wood

And I don't have a wooden heart"
Hope you have a lovely day wherever you are!

Number forty-seven said to number three:
"You're the cutest craft bird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
come on and do Sherry's Simplebloghouse Rock with me."
Let's rock, everybody, let's rock.
Everybody in the whole blog block
was dancin' to Sherry's Simplebloghouse Rock.

It very nearly scans right and I like it!

Hope your very pretty angel won't mind Elvis's new song!
