Made with love Sunday....

Hello,

How are you I hope your weekend is going well and that the weather is being kind to you.

I have made a card today which is going to a store in Norway in Kjopsvik. They are selling Magnolia stamps there and they asked for a sample card.


I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. I have stamped sweet Tilda with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with walnut stain. The stickles I have used are star dust and I have also used a sakura stardust pen. I have sprayed the hearts and flowers with glimmer mist.


Thank you so very much for looking!

Have a lovely day.

Ahoy There!

Hello,

Well here we are at Friday and another Bank Holiday Weekend to enjoy! I have made my card for my Grandson Luca. As he has been very poorly with Tonsillitis and he loves the Magnolia pirate images.


I have coloured my Magnolia images with distress ink pads. I have stamped them onto Waterford water colour paper with versafine onyx. The background has been distressed with weathered wood and the edges have been distressed with walnut stain.


I have added stickle glue in gold and star dust. I have also used a clear star dust sakura pen to different elements for added shine. The letters are quickutz.


Well thank you so very much for visiting me and for all your wonderful comments I really appreciate each and every one of them,  and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Pink Tuesday.....

Hello,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. How hot was it so gorgeous in that sunshine. Today I have made a card using one of the hAnglar & stAnglar images my beautiful son Tom bought me for my birthday.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads stamped with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. I have distressed the background and everything on my card with walnut stain. I glimmer misted the paper doily with iridescent gold. The stickle glue I have used is star dust. The die cut behind my image is a nestie. The leaves and butterflies are martha stewart. The border is punched with a fiskars punch.


I wish you all a fabulous day and thank you so much for visiting me.

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.

Happy First Birthday Isabella!!!

Hello,

I hope you are all well today and your weekend is going well.

Today is a very special day for me as it is the 1st birthday of my beautiful Granddaughter Isabella!



It was the most special day for me the day she was born as I was my daughter Claire's birthing partner and that amazing memory will stay with me forever!

Claire had some photographs taken of Isabella and Luca at Hamilton Studios in East Grinstead and Lisa the photographer worked her wonderful magic and took the most stunning pictures. Lisa very kindly said that I could show this one on my blog. Thank you Lisa I am eternally grateful to you for giving me these wonderful memories to hold onto forever!

Thank you so much for your visit. We are going this afternoon to Isabella's birthday party and can't wait to give Isabella and Luca a big squish! Have a great day whatever you are doing!
