Little Chipboard Heart

This was my first attempt at making a little chipboard heart inspired by Nancy Maxwell-James for her 14 heARTs tutorial project.  Nancy has generously shared many of her sweet Valentine's projects and how to create them on her blog, Sugarlump Studios.  I made the heart too small and discovered that the Paper Whimsy images I wanted to use were too large to fit, so I had to settle for another image.  I love this image of the sweet angel girls, but the heart came out looking more like a Christmas ornament than a Valentine's heart!  Oh, and my skills with a glue gun are practically non-existent, so I had a lot of trouble applying the tinsel around the heart, but it was good practice for me.  Despite that little glitch, it truly was fun to get busy creating again!  I made another heart later on, and had a much easier time with the dreaded glue gun!
