Magnolia DT Card........................


I am posting my first ever DT Magnolia card (yikes). This is one of the new Animals collection soon to be released and I just love them. Tilda is just so sweet and the face of the kitten is adorable. I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have distressed the background with antique linen. The heart and leaves have been quickutzed and sprayed with glimmer mist old lace. The paper and flowers and gorgeous crocheted flower were in my dt kit.

Luca's play was a raving success and he said his lines so clearly and beautifully (Grandma's biased view). Here is a piece of my heart with drooping ears as he just couldn't stay still bribery came into play just to get this shot!

Thank you so much for looking. Have a great Saturday!
