Motivet DT card......


I hope you are all well. I have some very happy news to share. I have been invited to join the Motivet DT and of course I said yes! I am so thrilled to be working with such a talented team of gorgeous girls.  So here is my first Motivet dt card.

I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. Which I stamped with archival coffee onto Waterford 300gsm water colour paper. The background is distressed with one of the new distress ink colours stormy sky and I just love it. The stickles I have used are star dust and tiara. I have distressed everything with walnut stain. The flowers are EK success punched and the leaves are Martha Stewart punched.

I have been given this award by the amazingly, stunningly talented Hanna.

Thank you so much Hanna I am truly thrilled to receive this award from you! I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits my blog as a huge thank you for all your wonderful support. You are all so sweet and lovely!

Well, thank you so very much for looking. I hope like me you are enjoying this amazing summer weather. I am really trying to make the most of it by going in the garden as much as I can. Plus having to make the most of my Grandbabies as school is looming in September. I am so dreading it. Went with Claire to choose Luca's uniform and couldn't stop crying. How embarrassing is that poor Claire but he is still such a baby to me and he looked so darn cute. It was his little knees that did it for me and seeing how proud his little face was!

Lisa said...

Hi Kim, Wow gorgeous card! Such a sweet image and I love the sparkle. Congrats on being chosen for the Motivet DT :o)

I bet your little GS looked so smart and proud in his new school uniform. I am always really sad when the summer holidays come to an end because it means a new year at school. In September my daughter will go up to year 6 and it will be her last year at junior before the next big step to high School. At the same time my son will go up to junior school. I already feel sad and it's over a year away ~ whatever will I be like when the time comes :o(
