A card for Tuesday....


Well, we are nearly there now. Hope you are all well and taking life a bit easier!

I have coloured my card with distress inks. I have distressed the background, sentiment and papers with vintage photo. Added loads of stickles and a velvet ribbon. The stars are quickutz and stickled.

Here is a card that my four year old Grandson Luca made. He painted this at his nursery and a company made it into a Christmas card. Isn't it sweet. I hope you don't mind me sharing it with you.

Thank you all so much for looking and take care.

Evening Kim.
I'm so glad Isabella is on the mend, it's horrible when children are so poorly and especially worse at this time of year. I hope she continues to make a good recovery.
Your card is stunning as always and Luca's is gorgeous, he obviously takes after his very talented Grandma.
If I don't get to visit again I'd just like to wish you and your family a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

Chris said...

Hi Kim! WOW your card is amazing and such a sweet stamp with your fabulous colouring but as I'm sure you would want it, Luca's Christmas card steals the show :D! A little artist in the making, I love his tree. I haven't managed any blog hopping for ages and I was sorry to read that Isabella has been so ill but very happy that she's on the mend, a huge relief, you all must have been so worried. Well done to Claire for nursing her through it, she's an amazing Mummy. Will email you, big hugs to you Chris xx
