Sending love.......


First I would like to wish you all a very Happy Easter. It is so wonderful to have the long weekend start here and I hope you have lots of happy times!

Today I have made a card using this sweet Tilda from Magnolia's You are so Special Collection.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads. The edges on this and all my papers has been distressed with walnut stain. The oval dies are nesties. The stickles I have added are Star Dust.

I have decorated the inside too.

Here I have used the Doohickey Magnolia Tag die. To get the border. I embossed the die only onto some bazzill and cut around the edge. Then I die cut the tag using some of this delicious Prima paper to go inside the border.

Here I used a nestie for you to write your message on and punched the flowers using the tiny EK Success punch.

Here you can see some of the flower detail I have used Wild Orchid flowers and stamens. Then added some of my trusty sprinkly spronkly Star Dust.

Here you can see a bit more dimension. I have added 3d cushions under my two layers of card to get depth to my card.

This card will be on Ebay later tonight if you are interested.

Well thank you so very much for visiting with me. I hope you have a good Easter. I have my family coming over some of the time. Lots of cuddles for Nanma! Luca is going for another operation on his eyes at GOSH on Tuesday so I need all the cuddles I can to keep me going until he comes home. This will be his 14th bless him. I just wish is was me and not him.
