Lasting Hearts Card Drive

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing with you four cards that I made for the Lasting Hearts Card Drive. If you are not familiar with it, or have heard "something" about it but would like to have more details - please check Jennifer McGuire's post here. I think it is an absolutely wonderful  and worthy cause, and therefore did my best to find a little bit of spare time to make these. I hope they make their recipients feel a bit better. 

Be prepared for a lot of photos in this post -  four cards means four times more pictures LOL. There's also a short YouTube video, where you can get more information on the products I used.

I have been recently quite obsessed with the canvas sketch pads that I bought in Lidl - I used them for the first time on these cards, and soon after making these I ran to the shop to get a few extra pads - one cannot be sure when (and IF) these will ever be back for sale (at least in Lidl)! Making these backgrounds with my Distress Inks was easy-peasy, and thanks to some Perfect Pearls in the water I used for painting - the cards all have a lovely shimmer. 

Ans now sit back, relax, and get scrolling! :o) I am very pleased with the end result and I hope that you like the cards too! 

And here's the YouTube video I mentioned:

I am entering the cards into the following challenges:
QKR Stampede - Pile it on
Crafty Friends - Girly (The card I am entering is the one with the butterfly)

Have a great weekend!
