Happy Monday....................


Hello,

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I had a lovely day yesterday lots of cuddles with my Grandchildren. I have made a card today using the new Whiff of Joy Summer collection.  I have coloured my images with distress inks. I masked Willow and stamped the orange tree next to her. I used my circle and scalloped edge nesties for my shape. I have distressed background and papers with vintage photo and spiced marmalade. I have glimmer misted my flowers. 

Wishing you all a great week and thank you so much for looking!

love
kim x
