The Way To A Mans Heart !!!

Oh isn't that just the truest saying ever, men love their food and I'm sure all you girls will be cooking up something yummy for your man this valentines day.
Well I think Tilda has cooked up these heart shape cookies for the love of her life "Edwin" for Valentines don't you !!? lol This is an old Magnolia stamp but I still love her.
I have coloured Tilda with Prisma Pencil this time just for a change and highlighted with a little pale grey Copic marker to add a shadow, the flourish stamp is from Hero Arts Stamped with Tim Holtz distress ink which I also used to distress the papers.
I used my Heidi Swapp distress tool to rough up and distress the edges of the old DCWV paper from the Kitchen stack that I have had for some time now but was saving them for ...well you know how it is !!! lol .
I also punched the flowers and leaves from the same paper
The little wooden button was given to my by a lady on eBay who I bought some other bits from.
Other tools I used were an MS boarder punch and of course as my Sewing machine
There are so many lovely Valentine theme challenges running this week so I am entering this in to the following;
