I love you more than cherry pie

Over at Simply Create there is currently a challenge based around this pretty inspiration board. The challenge? Make anything you like from fabric or paper using the colours and board as inspiration......The bonus? Well the best entry will win £100 of stash.  

......and so on a miserable wet and windy January morning I was inspired to make this.....

The 'I love you more than cherry pie' was handstamped onto the linen fabric with fabric ink and heat set. The inspiration really came from some hand felted balls I made for a Christmas project which I carefully dissected in half to make the cherries. On the inspiration board I loved the touches of soft pale blue so I thought I'd make a pretty label to finish.

As well as entering the challenge I think this heart is perfect as my January Monthly Make being hosted by Annie the Felt Fairy because as well as the felted cherries the leaves are also made of felt. (Can I just point out that you don't have to make something from felt to take part that is just my little homage to the Felt Fairy)

So if you would like to take part in either challenge the links are over in my sidebar. You never know you might get some inspiration too. Have fun.
