Thinking of you.....


I was so very lucky to win this beautiful stamp from  Elaine's Quixotic Cards  blog hop on the amazingly talented Judy's blog. Thank you so much girls I was so thrilled to have won her.

I have coloured my image with distress inks. The background is distressed with weathered wood. I have distressed the papers, flowers and leaves with walnut stain and added stickle glue.

I have also been given these awards by these gorgeous sweeties!

This is from Lisbeth and Nancy.

These are from Tineke

Thank you so very much ladies! I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits me as a big thank you for all your wonderful support!

Thank you so very much for looking! I have tried using blogger again to upload my post,  as when I use live writer I have been told that not all of my card can be seen. What do you think. Is it better this way or with live writer?

Chris said...

WOW Kim, I could sit here looking at your gorgeous card all day, it's so beautiful! Congrats on winning that gorgeous stamp and you're colouring is breathtaking. Stunning paper and design, the flowers you made are so pretty too. I use livewriter too and I do like the fact that you can make your pictures bigger. I found that it lost my background settings after I added my Magnolia blog so now I press the preview button and can kind of guess how much to pull the photo's so that they fit the posting space, bit of a pain but it's handy for posting to both the blogs at once, I think it has some quirks though :) Hugs, Chris xx

Britt-Inger said...

Lovely cards you do.. :)
