Happy Everything Sunday.....


Hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Thank you so much for all your lovely get well wishes for Luca. He was so happy when I told him of all your lovely messages. He is feeling so much better now so lets hope that we can have a break now from baby germs for the summer. I was so very touched by your kindness and am so thankful for all your support you are wonderful!

Today I would like to share with you a card I have made using the new dies by Magnolia. They are absolutely gorgeous! I received the Lace border die in my dt kit and I loved it so much I had to buy the Tag die from Crafts U Love it is so Magnolia can't wait to get more now. I will be demoing them at Crafts U Love on the 24th of this month so I can play with them all then :)

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. Tilda has been stamped with Archival coffee onto Waterford 300 gsm water colour paper. I have distressed the background with Tumbled Glass and I have edged and distressed this and everything on my card with Brushed Corduroy. I have sprayed the tag and heart with iridescent gold glimmer mist. The sprinkly spronkly is Stardust stickle glue. The leaves are quickutzed.

Thank you so very much for looking and for all your kind comments big hugs!

Have a wonderful Sunday and a good week ahead!

craftimamma said...

So glad to hear Luca is well on the mend. We have a little invalid too. My 28 month old Granddaughter broke the metatarsal to her big toe in her left foot a couple of weeks ago but if you saw the pot you would think she has a quite bad break of her leg. The pot goes from the tips of her toes right to the top of her thigh. Talk about overdoing things, Lol! I'm going to try and blog a photo next week.

Love the beautiful card Kim, and those pretty dies look like must haves.
