A card for Christmas.....


Hello,

I hope you had a great weekend. I am in full swing Christmas card making mode. Next year I am definitely going to start early. I have so many more to make. My Magnolia image has been coloured with distress inks. I have added some stickle glue and the background is distressed with old paper and edged with walnut stain.


I have mounted the stamped sentiment onto a nestie shape and added liquid pearls. The flowers have been stickled.

Thank you so very much for looking. I would like to say a big, big, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your comments. You are so very lovely, huge hugs and kisses.

love
