Cheating Hearts

While I've been trying to catch up on blog hopping I noticed there are quite a few Less is More Heart cards going around and in my head I thought of a card I could make. Then I noticed that all these cards had one thing in common, they were flat.
So I checked out the challenge blog and yes its One Layer card week so that put paid to my idea. I wanted to make a least one card yesterday and I couldn't think of a heart stamp to use (I probably do have some). So while checking out my stamp drawers these little Penny Black critters were sitting on the top of the pile and I could see hearts even though they're tiny ones.
A quick and easy card was made although I was hyperventalating while colouring in case I would go over the lines even slightly cos that would mean it the card would find itself in the bin.
The sentiment is Hobby Art and I've worked out you stamp it before you colour cos if the sentiment stamp goes belly up you haven't taken time to colour the image yet.

Thank you for the lovely Birthday Wishes for my Birthday that s coming up soon (next week), so if you haven't enter yet check out my Birthday Candy.
