It’s beginning to feel and lot like Christmas……..

skating couple 

Hello,

Well I hope everyone is ok. I have been dying to use this sweet image and now I have. I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. The flowers are EK success punched. I have distressed the edge with vintage photo and  added stickles. The small dots are liquid pearls.

Thank you so very much for looking. I would like to send a big hug to my amazing daughter who has nursed and cared for baby Isabella while she has been so poorly with German measles and a dreadful ear infection.  My heart goes out to all you wonderful, selfless Mothers who love and care for your babies and children when they need you the most. You are all absolutely 100% phenomenally wonderful!

love
