Heart Shaped Home Decor

Hi friends my country has begun a 21 day lock-down to combat the  Corona virus situation and for me personally these are very trying times as not only am I an ENT Surgeon but so is my husband ; and my mom, who turned 73 recently, is an anesthetist. We are statistically in the  high risk category for contracting the disease .
I know many of you across the  world are in difficult situations and I can only imagine the  challenges each of you must be facing in these unprecedented times.
In this post I am not going to post any advice.......I am sure you are getting enough of that from face-book and other social media.
I am just giving you a few seconds of diversion!

This is the gift I made for my mom for her 73rd birthday . My mom loves flowers and bright cheerful colours and loves decorating her home.
I made it using an MDF heart from  Crealies . Covered the  MDF with thin pattern paper

Stenciled bricks using crackle paste and the  Crealies brick stencil .

Added lots of flowers made with Crealies  dies and foamiran

I added one of my favourite sentiments " Celebrate"  which may seem difficult  in the  present scenario but maybe we can "celebrate" life itself and remember to count our blessings in these trying times.

Added dark pink shadows in areas for highlighting 

And added tiny pearls for texture

And here is how it looks

I made the  matching  card using the  Crealies  Cardzz Love die

Layered the  "Love" shape  using glitter foam and pattern paper and added heart shaped lock and key from the  new " Mix and Match " die set.

I hope you liked my project .
Stay safe.

  20. Thank you for sharing this beauties!
    I hope you are well and safe!
    All the best and inspiring days!

  21. Your mom's gift and present are absolutely gorgeous, I'm glad you had a bit of time to create. I was wondering about you with the coronavirus, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  22. Wonderful creation. Hope you are keeping safe and well.

  23. Such amazing works full of love, Dr. Sonya, any sweet detail is a joy for the eyes and I'm sure your mum loves them so very much! Happy Birthday to her!!
    Hope that in your country doctors aren't doing the same italian error: don't pump oxygen in with mechanical ventilation, because there are pulmonary thrombi and so this fact makes people die. Here in Italy we have not more emergency (even if government keeps all us still in emergency with fear, to seize absolute power... we are having a very bad politics, social and economical time... our republic is at risk)
    These are the treatments from the light to the strong, that work to win Covid-19. Step 1: Chlorchina. Step 2: Antivirals and anti-inflammatories. Step 3: Heparin and plasma.
    Stay safe and well, and take care of your loved ones.
    Big hugs

  24. The details and the colors are stunning. Stay safe doc.
    Love from Canada

  25. Two absolutely gorgeous creations, Sonia. The colours are so beautiful and my favorites.

    I hope you and your family are in good health and spirits. Take care.
