Sending hugs to you.....


I hope that you are enjoying life and I still can't believe we are into October already!

Here is a card I made using Magnolia's sweet Tilda.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads. Stamped onto 300gsm (140lbs) hp watercolour paper. I have die cut ovals using nesties and pin pricked around the edge which has been distressed with walnut stain. The stickles I have added are star dust and I have added some crackle paint translucent to the flowers. The tag and leaves are Doohickey dies.

I have decorated the inside too.

Here is the inside left.

The butterfly is a Magnolia Doohickey die.

Here is the inside right.

Leaving enough room for your message. The leaf is also a Magnolia Doohickey die. I have added liquid pearls around the roses.

A close up of sweet Tilda.

Thank you so much for your visit! I wish you all a wonderful week ahead. My Grandchildren are both having operations this week on separate days so it will be all hands on deck. 

This card will be available on Ebay later.

I LOVE this card Kim! Absolutely gorgeous! Great with the pin pricked line around the image.

Best of luck to Luca and Isabella on their operations. I can imagine it is nervewrecking for you.

I left a rainy Newcastle yesterday, and came back to rain in Norway, so today I'm just enjoying coloring my new Magnoliaimages. I wish you a wonderful Sunday!

Hi there, I just wanted to pop by and tell you about the Wild Rose Studio blog hop, you could win 7 of their stamps and three paper pads, all you have to do is make a christmas themed card, and you dont have to use a Wild Rose studio stamp or product. (Although we would love it if you did)And then comment, on all of the DT blogs. Come and join in the fun. Would love to see you there
