This Old Heart of Mine

Well over on The Sunday Stampers this week's challenge is to create something with a heart as the theme is This Old Heart of Mine! I spent hours in my craft room last night and it was a complete disaster - I knocked over a whole new pot of white embossing powder all over my dark blue carpet - what a nightmare!!!! Everything I tried to do went wrong - grrrrr! Anyway, I found a jigsaw piece that I had started to alter a few months ago so I decided to have a go at that instead! I covered it with various papers, stamped one of the sayings that I've got from my Cats Life stamp collection. Then I roughed up an old heart I had and stamped on that with a Paper Artsy stamp, added some gems and a paper flower and then finally used a dabber on one of my grungeboard flourishes! Hope you like it, I was quite pleased with it considering the nightmare I was having!!!!
