Sending hugs......

Hello,

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas. I certainly did with my scrummy family :)

It is the new start to a new year. So I am sending you wishes for a very Happy New Year filled with happiness, good health, and love!


 To start the new year I would like to share a card I made using a sweet Tilda from the latest Magnolia release by the amazingly talented Pauline "Tilda Loves Flowers".

I have coloured her with distress inks. 
Added Star Dust stickles and distressed everything with walnut stain.
The border and tag are Magnolia's Doohickey dies.


I have decorated the inside.


The heart is another Doohickey die. The butterflies are Magnolia images.


The little gate from Magnolia is stamped with Coffee Archival ink and Sakura clear stardust pen added.


Well, thank you all so much for looking and for your comments I say a huge thank you!

Enjoy the rest of the new week in 2012!

love
kim x
