April 26-Heartstrings

Happy Monday everyone. Although today I am a little blue. I dropped off my sweetpea at school today only to have him leave for Nature's classroom. Yes, a whole week without Curtiss. I'm going to go nuts. I thought it would be good practice for the dreaded day he leaves for college, wrong. I miss him already and it's only been 2 hours. UUgghhh, I guess I am a softie.
Despite having dirty hands and no fingernails left from cleaning the flowerbeds I did manage to finish Straight through the heart Tilda in time for the challange. I hope you like it. I decided to make it suitable for an engagement or wedding card rather than another Valentine (have about 20 already). Cutting her out was a bit of a challenge but not impossible. This was a fun one to make because I was determined to use red, white and black! So romantic. Sorry I can be a bit corney in that way. I have to add as well a BIG Thank You to all of you who have left comments on this post today. All I can do is think of C and smile. Only 4 more days to go I guess. Oh, I will be redesigning this blog soon. Time for a change.
Have a great week, Carpe Diem!
