Super Saturday.....


I hope you are all well and life is being good to you. Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. I had a fantastic time and got the most amazing cards from my friends boy your talent is incredible I can't stop looking at them  and some scrummy crafting goodies too thank you!

I would like to show you a card I made for a sweet friend who has just celebrated her birthday.

I have stamped my Magnolia image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm water colour paper. I have coloured her with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with antique linen and that and everything else has been edged with vintage photo. The punched flowers are ek success. The leaves are  Magnolia. The heart border is Martha Stewart. The stickles I have added are Star Dust.

I have been given this award from the wonderfully talented Suze, Broceliane and Tineke.

Thank you so much Suze and Tineke you are so lovely to think of me I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits me as a big thank you for your amazing support to me.

Thank you so much for visiting me. I wish you all a most wonderful weekend. The weather here is looking mighty fine so I am going to be out there enjoying this marvellous sunshine I hope you can too!

Another beautiful creation Kim, I must tell you it's my Bday this week, if I give you my addy fancy sending me one...

Just kidding sweety...

I still have to make time to have a good go at watercolouring with the new papers and inks I got from Hubby, the decorating is taking over at the moment...but I am so itching to sit and play...I have moved onto the kitchen now so it might be some time before I sit down with all my new stash

Stunning card Kim, the magnolia papers look lush, and your image is devine, not had a chance to do anything with my papers yet, they are too nice to cut up...

So Sorry I think I missed your Bday....So belated hugs and best wishes...I hope you had a fantastic time....
