Just Magnolia week 12 - So Charming.....


Hello,

I hope everyone is well. Boy oh boy how hot was it last night. So not used to this crazy heat and my poor dogs they are panting for Britian!

Today we have the start of a new challenge at Just Magnolia. The theme this week is So Charming. The dt have made the most fabulous cards so please go and see you will be totally inspired. I have coloured my image with distress inks. The background is distressed with weathered wood and frayed burlap. I have die cut my image using my nesties.

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

love

Hey Kim, this is just so stunning! I am really going to have to try this distressing that you do, it looks so soft and pretty. Do you guys have air conditioning?
