Enjoying the Journey........


Hello,

Well the weather is just fantastic at the moment I am talking hot, hot, hot! If you are experiencing the same take care out there. Oh now is the time when I wish I had a pool.

I have made a card today using the images sent to me in my Magnolia dt kit. I have coloured them with distress inks. I then masked the car and sprayed my background with ivory lace glimmer mist. I have distressed the edge with fired brick and frayed burlap. I have also added some stickle glue. The butterfly I have 3d and also stickled it.

I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for looking!

love
kim x

Wow Kim - this is amazing. I love the scene you have created ... and I never thought to spritz glimmer mist over my background, I must give that one a go!!
Know what you mean about a pool - got three little ones squealing and splashing away in the paddling pool - just wish there was room for me!
Have a great day.

Wow Kim what a scene you have created here!! That is fabulous! I just never know where to start with them so I don't do them! (LOL) This is so pretty ~ love the colors and that dp paper is perfect!!

Isn't that awful about George!! I was so mad and now you see why I had to right and get it off my chest!! I have read somewhere that he is off the show for sure!! He was one of my favorites. But his character was not that active this season so they were preparing us I guess!! Will have to wait til Sept. to see what else happens!!

Have a great day Kim!!
