I don't have a wooden heart

 I'm discovering that making art expressing something personal is often the best kind of art and of course I enjoy expressing my love for my best friend Poppy, you may have noticed that Poppy is black and yet on all the things I make with her featured she is white, this is purely because if I coloured her black I'm certain she would turn into a black blob, so yes, I'm cheating!
I'm loving working on wood and these chunky ATC's measuring 3.5 x 2.5 x 1.5 inches are a wonderful size. (You can get them from Happy Daze). 
My most favourite stamps of the moment are by Suzi Blu.

 Here's the top, Poppy does hold the key to my heart.
The whole thing was coated in beeswax and has gold stars embedded and it smells gorgeous.
Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
