Tremendous Thursday!


I had such a lovely day yesterday teaching a box and card class at Crafts U Love. I was joined by the most fabulous ladies thank you it was such a pleasure.

This was the card we made.

crafts u love card

This was the box.


I coloured my image with distress inks. I have used glimmer mist for the flowers and some of the paper. I have distressed the paper and flowers with brushed corduroy and added stickle glue.



I would like to say thank you to Susan and Lynn for all your help.


Thank you so much for looking and take care.

Hello my darling girl,
How gorgeous is your card? The box is just amazing!!!
The details are out of this world and you made me want to get things altered now.
I love the way you've coloured the pixie.. and the background too!! something I struggle with sometimes.
Hope you gave the girls at CUL a big wave from me??? lol
Have a gorgeous day sweetie,
Hugs, Marlene x

I never tire of viewing your fabulous work, Kim, and as usual this is stunning! To be honest I was not a fan of these images with the oversized heads but you have made her look brilliant and the box is divine. Can you tell me what colours of distress ink you use for your faces? The one I tried to do is much paler. Warmest wishes, Lesley
