New Arrival..........

Hello,

I hope you are all well and have had a wonderful weekend! The weather here has been amazing. So lovely and sunny, I can really feel spring is on it's way!


I have made this card for a lovely blogging friend who has become a Grandmother again to the most beautiful baby boy. Such a wonderful time for her and her family.

I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with stormy sky and the edges of this and everything on the card have been distressed with walnut stain.

The stickles I have used are star dust.



A very big thank you for your visit, and I wish you all a wonderful week ahead!

love
