Terrific Thursday.....


I hope you are all well and are starting to see signs of summer coming your way.

Today I have a card to show you using a sketch from the most amazingly talented Hanna.  Here is Hanna's sketch.

Hanna's cards are just out of this world and I love  every single sketch that she so very kindly puts on her blog to share. So thank you Hanna this was such a dream to use I really loved making this card.

I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. My image has been stamped with versafine onyx black onto Waterford water colour paper. I have edged this and all my edges with walnut stain. I have embossed in silver the swirl on the base paper. The doily, butterflies, martha stewart flowers have been distressed with vintage photo. The stickle glue I have used is star dust. The leaf punch is ek success.

I have also had the honour of being given this award by three gorgeous bloggers Sheila Sandra and Sarpreet.


Thank you so much girls you are so very lovely to think of passing this onto me. I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits me as a huge thank you for all your support of me and for leaving such sweet comments thank you!

Well I will say goodbye now and thank you so much for popping by and visiting my blog.

Dear Kim ! Today we not only see signs of summer , it´s here. Today more than 25 degrees C. and it´s hot.I love it. This morning I made a card for an exam, but after that I have been outside in the garden all day.
I love the card you show today.It´s fun making cards out of sketches.But sometimes hard. You make it excellent.
