The Heart Desires #8

The Heart Desires continues to pique my interest with their fabulous Mood Board #8 this month ... take a look for yourself:


I am a huge blueberry fan, so I couldn't resist choosing that frozen gorgeousness in the corner ... this time. 


Clear embossed for a bit of frozen-shine, these are cute little blooms chosen from the Altenew set called Simple Flowers - another beauty from May Parks. 

Thanks for stopping by today ... you've all been very quiet, but I do notice if you've stopped by, and appreciate the visit very much!  Hope you're well, and just snuggled in to wait for Spring!

=]  Michele

Supplies:
Altenew:  Simple Flowers & Winter Cardinal [the branch]
MFT Die-namics dies: Stitched Strip [hearts], Wonky Ovals; Blueprints Tag Bldr. #3
Paper: Pinkfresh Studios: Indigo Hills
Distress Inks:  Broken China, and Chipped Sapphire

Hey girl! Funny thing. I made a blueberry coffee cake for company yesterday! Talking great minds thinking alike!! This is sooo pretty. I love how you've captured those icy blueberries in the inspiration photo. And those spatters... Perfect little echoes!! Hope your 2017 has started off fantastically, and that it's not toooo cold by you! Bev
