Fabulous Friday...

Hello,

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. 

love

Sending hugs to you.....

Hello,

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.

love
