Fabulous Friday...


The weekend is nearly here!

Can I say a very, very, big thank you to you all for your wonderful kind wishes for Luca and Isabella's operations. They both were very successful and Claire and I took great comfort from your lovely words and kindness. So we are sending back big hugs!

Today I have a card I made for a very special and an amazingly generous and sweet blogging friend.

I have coloured Magnolia's Tilda with distress inks. I have distressed the edges with walnut stain. 
The stickles I have added are star dust and platinum.

I have decorated the inside too.

Here is the inside left.

Also, the inside right.

Thank you so very much for your visit.
I wish you a very lovely weekend. Luca was six this week. So it is party time for us this weekend.

You have created a masterpiece, sweeite.
