Laugh, love & live.....

Last year a friend gave me a lovely set of wall art, with the words Laugh, Love & Live on, I have always liked the wording and last night started out making my own little version, I hope you like it as much as I do!!

I have used the fabulous 'crumbcake' and 'topnote' die as the base. and stamped around the top edge of each, with the swirl from the 'Simply Said' stamp set.

The letters were cut with the 'Timeless type' alphabet dies, Birds cut with the 'Two step bird punch' in 'Rich razzleberry' & 'Old Olive', you may be able to see that they were over stamped in co-ordinating ink, with the 'Fine flourish' stamp, the branches were cut out of chocolate chip, using the branch, from the same punch.I added some hearts stamped from the 'I heart hearts' stamp set and punched out with the hearts punch, some were dangled from linen thread, for the centre love panel.

To finish it was tied together using some of the 'Linen thread' to give it a rustic look.
In a hurry today as I have my class and a chocolate treat yet to get!! xx
