Delicate Peony Card

Hello my crafty friends,  I felt so inspired this evening that I had to draw this peony.  It reminds me of the beautiful peonies that grow out in front of my house, mine are a deep pink with double blooms.   All the flowers are spent now, but now I have a way to remember their beauty.   I didn't really have a reason to make this only that I was also remembering my mother, and how much she loved these flowers. 

If you would like to follow me at my other blog, its:

For this design I used the following:

Image: Delicate Peony - hand drawn by me :)

Prisma pencils

Flowered background paper from Kaisercraft - Rosabella Collection

And the base card is from PaperTemptress

Hugs, Mary

Shop is closed

 It's sad to have to start out this post on the negative, but my shop is now closed.   I was hoping to be on Etsy for a long time.   Honestly my team and I were looking forward to the Christmas time challenge, and continue into the new year with confidence.    Over time this blog will begin to look and "feel" different.    No longer a challenge blog.   I do thank everyone that entered our challenges.   It was a lot of fun.

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Hettie's Christmas Box

 Christmas is just around the corner.... and looks like Hettie might be looking to see what she would like to place on her tree.    I created this image in 2020.  And it's one that never found its way into my online shop.    This card is very basic.    Card base is Blue Yonder Card Stock from My Favorite Things, and the colorful plaid paper is from MFT.    I am in love with this online shop.  My first order from them came so nicely wrapped, everything placed in tissue paper folded with great care.     Now I am just rambling.  

Btw I do appreciate my followers to this blog, leave a comment I read each one.

Thank you, Mary

Regretfully I must close.....

 Hello,  It's with much regret that I must close my Createful Heart Design etsy shop, effective January 2022.   I have received some news about new regulations that will go into effect on this date.   Tax requirements that will be imposed upon me.    Actually, I will have to close my shop before this date, cause if I don't my shop will be suspended.   

We will no longer have any kind of card challenges.   I would like to thank all of you that have entered our challenges on a regular basis.   And have kept Createful Heart Design as a favorite.    And I appreciate all that have made purchases from my shop.   

   I have for the most part enjoyed every minute of creating new images over the years, since this business started in 2017.    This step isn't an easy one to do, as I thought Etsy was going to be my home for many years to come.   My heart is sad.    And there have been many commitments made, as I have been a sponsor over a the years as well.    

Even though my shop will close I have decided to keep my blog up, and I have decided to keep blogging about my images, and what inspired me to do these images.   I want to do this as memory of the years that I have been in business.      And if you would still like to follow me as I transition into just a regular blog again,  I would really appreciate it.     

 The news about these new regulations was just announced in an email to me, just yesterday.   And so I am telling you all as quickly as I have heard about it.     

To say that I'm not upset would be a lie.   So, as I write this post, my heart is very sad.   

You might be asking, will you consider getting back into business at some point in the future?    Well, that may be a possibility.   But as for now, I must move on.
