Sending happiness......

Hello,

Here we are another Holiday weekend. I hope you have lots of great things planned. I am going to be in my garden and enjoy the beautiful weather. Yesterday I was glued to the television from 8am to 11.30pm watching the Royal Wedding and then all the footage again. I ate up every last minute of it and loved every magical moment! Huge congratulations to such a beautiful couple!


I have made a card with celebration in mind using Magnolia's Tilda with Balloon from the You are so Special collection.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads onto 300gsm watercolour paper.

I have distressed the background with pumice stone and edged this and everything on the card with walnut stain.

I have die cut the tag and fence using Magnolia's Doohickey dies. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.


I have added some gauze around my card and the stickle glue I have added is star dust.


I have decorated the inside of my card.


The two little tags are quickutz.


The oval die cuts are nestablities. The button was a gift from my sweet friend Serena thank you!


Thank you so very much for your visit and I wish you a most fabulous weekend!

A quick update on Luca. Thank you all so much for all of your support. It means so much and I am very happy to report that the operation went very well and we are keeping everything crossed that he will respond well to this last procedure.

This card will be on Ebay later tonight if anyone is interested.

I would like to enter my card into the Sukkersott challenge which is to include butterflies.

love
