More inspiration for February!!!

A reminder firstly of our challenge! This month is a ‘Love’ quote, and of course we would like to see a handmade item on your page (can be handmade by somebody else!)!
The quote…
SUYS feb
And our Sponsor this month is Lovelybug Bits n Bobs!!
Lovelybug Bits n Bobs is run by our own DT member Sue Plumb. Sue was forced to take a break from scrapping and Lovelybug after the premature arrival of her twin boys and the year that followed. She has recently begun creating again and has assured me that whilst progress has been slow with two demanding toddlers underfoot, she definitely has the bug again! Sue plans to relaunch Lovelybug Bits n Bobs with a new storefront in the near future. In the meantime, you can find Lovelybug Bits n Bobs on Facebook to keep up with any news.
Now for some new DT inspiration..
handmade item is the expanding heart
Handmade embellies by Burdys' handmade and Rainbow Splendour

Handmade items - Lovelybug Bits n Bobs felt flower and Burdy's Handmade Embellies chippie heart button

Handmade chippie heart from Burdy’s Handmade Embellies and love flair from D-Lish Scraps

We hope you will have a go at this challenge! Remember you don’t have to hand make the item yourself, it can be a handmade item that you have purchased.

Also, if you don’t have your own blog to link your entry here (link is top right of blog page), please let us know, and you can upload to our Facebook page! Smile
