Happy Friday....

Hello,

I feel a lot more energized now with the signs of spring on the way. So wonderful to see buds on trees and spring bulbs shooting up through the ground. It really cheers me. I hope that life is good with you too.


I have made a wedding acceptance card for a wedding that Phillip and I have been invited to this year.

I have coloured my image with distress ink pads.

I have distressed this and everything on the card with walnut stain.

The stickles are star dust. The butterflies a Martha Stewart punch. The lace border a Magnolia Doohickey die.


Thank you so much for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

love
