Hello wednesday - say it with a heart

Don't you just LOVE wednesday's? Say hello to wednesday "hello wednesday" It's all downhill from now on to the weekend - yippee!!!

 Need an idea for a quick fathers day prezzie?  Then this may be just the thing for you.


I used an old chart from our sailing days, but you could use a map.  If you have a favourite place you like to visit, or a special holiday then it would be perfect to use that map.  I drew a heart shape on to paper and then cut it out.  I laid it on top of my chart to get the position correct.  Stuck it with a few bits of tape and then cut round my heart.

The box canvas I have had for ages and came from The Works.  I used décopatch glue to stick the heart to the frame, covering it with the glue.  Once dry I used our new Navy buttons here to stick around the heart shape.

It looks brill on a brick wall - maybe in a garage, perfect for Dad.

Le Havre holds a special place for Tony and I, mainly fear of being run over and sunk by the massive channel boats. 

Quite scary but it was fun!

  1. Great idea! We've got quite a lot of road maps from France - the holiday company we used to go with gave us a new set each year so they're just stockpiled! Will have to look at everything in the study with fresh and crafty eyes! :o)
