Splendid Tuesday..................


Hello,

I have made a card today using an image from the WOJ summer kit. I have coloured her with distress inks. I have distressed the background with shabby shutters and dried marigold. I have added some liquid pearls to the swirls. 

I was so happy as I won Vanessa's blog candy. How brilliant is that. Thank you so much Vanessa. Vanessa is just the sweetest girl and I love to visit her blog so then to win the candy was a real bonus.

I have been given this award by the gorgeous and talented Vikki. Thank you so much Vikki I am so happy that you would think of me I am very humbled.

I hope you are are keeping well and if you had a Bank Holiday it was a good one.  Thank you so much for looking and a big thank you for all your lovely comments they mean so much to me. You are just the best!

love
kim x
