Heart Stealer 8

Hello All,

And here concludes yet another delightful week of quilling............I am amazed at the amount of creativity that quillers display! It is such a visual treat to go through the creations of quillers form around the world. The creations drip passion and I revel in the thoroughness, the perfection, the beauty of the creations....

For this week's heart stealer, the choice really was tough! All the more because I could feel the pressure of not being able to post Heart Stealer 9 for a long time. After my move is complete, I will get back to scouring the Internet for wonderful patterns for my heart stealer badge :)

So, here are the winners this week.......................

The first winner is capable of making my eyes want to pop out and roll under the table! She is perfection defined! Her creations are always so fairy tale like and when she took up the challenge of making two merging hearts, she gave it such a twist! And here goes..........this week's Heart stealer......Congratulations Larissa!

The second winner this week is someone who came to the quilling scene and wowed everyone with her intricate work! The attention to the tiniest of details makes her work so this week's second winner is Nupur whose explosion box is sure to make everyone whistle out loud!!!! Check those little balloons and the strips that go around the cake to gather at the top! WONDERFUL work Nupur and congratulations!

Some other terrific creations this week were:

Baukje's wonderful quilled hen
Sarah's lovely birthday card
Philippa's lovely 'inside the box' thinking
Suganthi's neat and wonderful Pongal wish

This has been one of the toughest weeks for me in deciding who wins the Heart Stealer 7!!!!

My Goodness, quilling world is on a roll! But well, here are my picks for this week..............

Anastasia has the knack for taking up the most unusual projects! And every time she picks up the quilling tool, I go WOW!
