My Crafty Heart DT Card - Look no image

Hello peeps how are you all today? Well as you can see from the title I have a card with 'No Image' today, yeah I know unusual for me!
Todays card is for My Crafty Heart using a few of Teresa's yummy things that she has in her fabulous store.
Yes I've done 'No Stamping' what so ever, even the sentiment is digital lol. I just fancied doing something different for a change.

The oh so gorgeous papers are indeed Prima 'Romance Novel' & splashed acrylic paint on all the edges. 

The plaster corner is Melissa Frances, these are so so pretty.

Here is a closer look at this beautiful flower. I have used the Cheery Lynn 'Stacker Die 2' & tbh I wasnt sure what the flowers would look like but I thought why not lol. They are fabulous I think I've put about 4 layers on this & then clipped together with a brad. Expect to see more of these peeps lol.
Lace & doily are from my stash.

1 layer I put through the notebook punch. Both hearts have been heat embossed & then cracked & inked a bit to distress them. I'm actually quite pleased with this considering it has no image......

Ingredients used...........
Sentiment - Whimsy
Prima 'Romance Novel' - MCH
Pearls & pearl hearts - MCH
Melissa Frances Resin Corner - MCH
Cheery Lynn Stacker Flower - MCH
Marianne Corner die - MCH

Well why not pop along to My Crafty Heart to treat yourself, go on cus 'your worth it' mmwah lol.
Well I'm slowly catching up with you, I will be there lol. Thank you so much for all your lovely sweet comments you all totally rock mmwah.

Altho if you are lonely why not email me & I will have a chat with you.

By the way Natalie is absolutely fine, as you can see below, she just doesn't like bedtime lol, never has done for 20 years bless her lol.
Doesn't she look sooooooooo comfy, I tell ya this chair is so squishy soft, she loves it!!! Its also finally nice that they make disabled aids more fashionable & not ugly now lol.
So thank you again to the person who left the comment, they say if you dont have anything nice to say...........then dont say anything at all!!!

If you dislike something on a blog well.....just stay away but zipp it please!!!!My dear friend in Holland suffers from severe astma and writes about it on her blog, she got remarks like "I thought it's all about cards, what do I care how often you are in/out a hospital" can you believe something like that???

cebelica said...

I didn't see the message you were refering to in this message, but I gather it wasn't anything nice. I'm really sorry that someone would leave bad messages to you. You are a truly amazing, kind and sweet person. Just don't pay attention to such people. They are not worth even a second of your time. Sending biiiiiiiig hugs to you and Natalie!!!

And as for your card, it's probably one of the most beautiful cards I've ever seen. Really! Absolutely stunning! Hugs! xx

KraftyKoolKat said...

Oh sweetie I am near to tears that someone could be so awful to you. Please do not stop speaking about your lovely family. The person who was so awful doesn't have to come and visit and read. They are probably jealous of your creativity and also you having a lovely family around you.
Your card today is very different to your usual style but proves how versatile you are. Full of loveliness!!!

Give Natalie a big gentle kiss from me. She looks so comfy in her new chair.

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Fabulous card. It is such fun to try smething different isn't it. Love all the gorgeous layers. As for the anonymous blogger, how dare they. When you write a blog you can write about what you want. I am stunned that people can be so horrible but too afraid to say who they are. Well I think Natalie is gorgeous too and my word, she does look comfy. You write about your family all you want. I wish I knew who these awful people are cos they would get a piece of my mind. Have a great weekend xxx

Eileen said...

What a gorgeous card. Well it has to be it's a Vicky creation :)
Love the sentiment.
As for the idiot who left an offensive comment... some people just look at blogs to upset others.
After 30 years as a health visitor I know the LOVE and sheer hard work that Natalie creates and the drain on your time and energy but all worth every minute of it.
Don't change a thing we all love hearing about Natalie and the rest of your lovely family.

Wishcraft said...

Oh hun, I'm really sorry someone upset you! I don't know what they said, but whatever it was - you just carry on as you are, and don't pay them any attention. Think how bad their lives must be, that they have to try and make lovely people miserable xxx

Trish and Treasure said...

Hi Vicky,
Wonderful papers and great card design you have a beautiful design eye and this is so lovely to look at! I love the comfy chair for Natalie she looks happy. Have a nice weekend.

Unknown said...

Oh sweetie, your post went straight to my heart... I simply cannot understand that there are people out there who know nothing of life and the people in it... your words gave me shivers all over... Please simply ignore such people, actually they're not even worth giving attention to. You know that there are lots of blog buddies out here who are happy to listen to you and your stories and I'm happy to hear that Natalie is looking so comfy, please give her an extra big hug from me, will you hun? Now on to your gorgeous creation without the image ;-) Really love that quote and how you craquelured it (have I just invented a new word here, lol!) Sending lots of hugs, Ira xox

Deb said...

your card is totally gorgeous, I am in awe that you made such a beautiful card without an image!
I think you dealt with that mean-spirited person perfectly hun, your regular readers know very well how much love and attention you give to all your family. I think if people are leaving anonymous comments they are obviously ashamed of what they have to say!
Love your parting words on this blog post, perfect!
have a great weekend, Debxx

Eileen Ng said...

Awww, sorry to hear of such awful things...I don't see how any of that is their business. Someone obviously doesn't surround themselves with enough love and beauty. In your message I see that you're taking a different approach--"kill them with kindness!" You're such a sweetheart and it is clear that you have a lot of love to offer be it family or your beautifully crafted cards! It's a piece of art and I'm so delighted that you could join us this week at Tuesday Alchemy! Have a sweet, sweet day!


Unknown said...

I am so sorry you had to suffer the nastiness of someone who doesn't have anything better to do :(

Your card is totally gorgeous! I really love the shabby chic feel of it.
Thank you for sharing with us at Tuesday Alchemy
*hugs* Shell x

Shelby said...

This is so pretty! Really love the cracked glass look and all of the gorgeous embellies are awesome. Sorry there are whimpy people in this world who obviously have nothing better to do. However, your daughter is so sweet and the chair looks sooo comfortable.


Heidi said...

Your card is gorgeous Vicky!
Absolutely stunning:)
Natalie look very comfy in her new chair.
I'm sorry that you got that nasty comment. I don't know what's wrong with some people! Don't change a thing my friend, I love visiting your blog and there is a reason for that;)
Take care and have a lovely Sunday, hugs:)

Ally said...

there are actually no words for some anonymous blogger with nasty comments... you have said all that should be said, Vicky. It's your blog and you can write something about your lovely and happy daughter whenever you want and no normal person would ever think that you seek for attention of her.
She is a wonderful young lady and we can all see that you all love her to death and will do everything to protect her and make her life wonderful!

Your card is lovely, Hun. I like the effect of the crackle part and the fact that there is no image on the card. Beautiful, just as aou are!!!

Tons of love,

xxxtglxxx said...

Please ignore that some mean and mealy mouthed people are obviously jealous of your talent, blog and boundless love and affection :)

I always believed that blogging was about sharing thoughts, ideas and bits of your life with others, and I always enjoy catching up with your posts hun!

That chair looks awful comfy! ;)

Beautiful card, its hard sometimes to leave an image off, its usually my starting point, so can be a real challenge for me, this is gorgeous!



PS - I never liked bedtimes either, and still think there are other, better things I could do with my time! lol :D

Pop's Cards said...

Hi sweetie this is just gorgeous, fabulous colours too, huggles Pops x x x

I got a few last week to, my work is utter shite, I use my kids to get freebies and just nasty stuff like that, I was on the point of giving up completely, I cropped it and posted it to facebook, then got another one saying how sad I was posting it to facebook, so that means it is someone i know and that makes it even worse in my opinion...

I have decided to keep blogging like you it is my blog, my work and if they don't like it they can fuk off, chin up there are some sad people about x

Dona said...

I love, love, love your blog and visit it often. Your talent is an inspiration and I get many ideas from you sharing your talent. Natalie looks beautiful and comfy in her new chair. You are proud of your family and love them and this is your space to be proud. You go Girl and keep it up. You Rock!! Thank you again for sharing your talent.
