Whiff of Joy sneak peak..............................


Hello,
Well here we are at the weekend! Yesterday I spent the day in the hospital with my Daughter and her husband because my Grandson was having his 7th operation in 3 years on his eyes. Thankfully everything went ok so I can now relax and enjoy this beautiful weekend. My Daughter deserves an extra special Mothers Day tomorrow as she is the best Mother in the world to her son and I am so proud of her. Especially as she is very unwell and on steroids with her asthma at the moment plus being 33 weeks pregnant. So I would like to take this opportunity to wish every Mother all over the world a very Happy Mothers Day tomorrow you all do so much with your love and nurture for our future generations.
Here is a card I made and I am so in love with this sweet, sweet boy. I have coloured him in with distress inks. I have distressed the background with antique linen. I have used glimmer mist on the flowers and leaves. I have also added glitter glue around the sentiment and the wings. Not long now until the release of these beautiful stamps by Elisabeth Bell for Whiff of Joy. The release date is Sunday 22nd 0:00GMT + 1. How exciting is that!
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for looking. Can I also say how very much I love your sweet comments thank you so much.
love kim x
