Anniversary wishes.....


I hope life is good with you and that you have had a great week. I have a card to share with you today using one of the new Motivet images.

I have stamped my image with versafine black onyx onto waterford 300 gsm water colour paper. I have coloured this with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with spun sugar and the edge of this and everything else is distressed with walnut stain.

The hearts are a nestie die and the leaf punch is a martha stewart. The added stickles are tiara.

Thank you so much for your visit and I wish you all a most wonderful weekend. Before I go I must show you a photo of the fairy ring down the bottom of my garden. This part is just the bit of the garden where we keep our recycling bin and logs for the fire etc., and then one morning we woke to find the ring. Luca absolutely loves it and when he visits has to stand in the middle and make wishes. He wants to have a sleep over with me so he can catch the fairies dancing around it!

Hi Kim
love your card, very pretty.
We have a fairy ring at the bottom of our garden, but unlike yours (sshh don't tell the children) it is made by Nanny's hands. The children love it, (although we had to make the eldest grandson promise, that he wouldn't tell the girls that it wasn't real) lol, Oh to be a child again.

Kimmi said...

Gorgeous card. I love the hearts and the image is simply adorable. That Fairy estate is amazing! We went for a walk today up to the top of one of the local hills. Took about 20 mins to climb. We kept looking for fairy houses for Poppy to look at cos she is mad on tinker bell and the films Ferngully. Unfortunately we couldn't see any, but we did have fun flying the kite we took.

Hope you've had a lovely weekend and that your week ahead is an easy one!
