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.

Sending love.......

Hello,

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.

Picking Flowers........

Hello,

I hope you all had a great week and have lots of good things planned for the weekend.

Today I would like to show you a card I have made using one of the Magnolia Mini 6 x 6 papers. The one I have used in this card is Turquoise Butterfly.


I have stamped Tilda with Butterfly Dress from the Butterfly Dreams Collection with versafine black onyx, onto 300gsm water colour paper and then cut her out.

I have used a nestie shape for my background. I have distressed this with pumice stone and edged this and everything else with walnut stain. The leaves and swirl are Magnolia Doohickey dies.


I have covered an Embelliscrap button with some Magnolia 12 x 12 Spring Butterfly paper and threaded this with green thread. The ribbon is bias binding which I have sprayed with home made distressed water in a mini mister using weathered wood and crinkled it up and left it to dry.


The stickles I have added are Star Dust, Silver Ice and some Sakura clear glitter pen. I have also added teeny tiny half pearls to her shoes.

A very big thank you for visiting with me and big hugs to you for your comments they mean so much to me.

I would also like to wish Mother's everywhere a very Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow. Whether you be carers of children or fur babies have a wonderful day and a big thank you for always being there, you amazing!

love
