Fabulous Friday...


Hope you have had a great week and are looking forward to the May Bank Holiday weekend!

I would like to share with you today a card I have made. I have coloured my Magnolia images with distress ink pads and stamped them onto Waterford 300gsm watercolour paper using versafine black onyx.

I have distressed the background with antique linen I have distressed the edges of this and everything else with walnut stain. The sparkle is stickle glue Stardust. The leaves are a martha stewart punch and the labels are a quickutz die. I have sprayed the doily with old lace glimmer mist.

I have been given this award by the lovely Astrid.

Thank you so much Astrid you are so very sweet to send me this.

Well, I wish you all a most wonderful weekend and I hope the weather is great for you too.

Thank you so very much for visiting me and for your comments I am so very grateful you are so kind and  lovely and I really appreciate each and every one.
