February FTHS Blog Hop

Hi!
Welcome to the From The Heart Stamps February Blog Hop.
We have a Love and Friendship Theme this month. 
Our designers are each showing a project created with this theme.
If you have arrived from Cammy's Blog , you are in the right place,
if not why don’t you start on the From The Heart Stamps Blog so you don’t miss anything.
Here is my project, using Conversation Hearts.

I used this sketch :
 
I had a printed copy of this sketch in my " Junk  pile" on my desk,
so I figured I'll take my inspiration where I can find it!
For some texture on the background I used a Stampin'Up 
embossing folder.
Next I went searching for a print that had pink and grey in it...
pink or red for valentine's and grey for the mouse.
I hand cut the banners , positioning them like in the sketch.
I tried three hearts in the bottom left like the sketch, but it didn't look right to me .
I liked it better with just one and the three littler ones scattered up above.
To cut these hearts I used the Simon Says Stamp Die called Holiday Shapes.
For the circle I used the MFT Die-namics pierced circle stax die.

Now head over to Imke's Blog.
and see what she has created. As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. 
We will select a random winner from the comments
on each blog to win one image of your choice.
Our hop will end on Sunday February 5th 2017 at 6 am, 
and the winners will be posted on Wednesday February 8th.
                                                       Thanks for hopping with us today.

'till next time,
Doni
