Ladybugandfriends DT card.......

Hello,

Hope you are all well. What has happened to the weather! Where has our summer gone. Hopefully, it will be back soon!

I am so very pleased to share with you today my first DT card for Ladybugandfriends. Thank you so much Linda for the invitation to join you and your amazing team. We are celebrating Christmas in July and there is the most stunning freebie on offer for you to celebrate with us on the Ladybugandfriends Blog. I have used one of the gorgeous images from the freebie.


I have distressed the Ladybugandfriends papers with Tim Holtz distressing edging tool. They are totally gorgeous and wonderful quality. I have used Ladybugandfriends beautiful flowers.  Everything has been distressed with vintage photo. The stickles are Star Dust. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.

I wish you all a most wonderful weekend!

Thank you so very much for looking!

love
kim x
