From the heart……..


Well I hope you are all keeping well. Suffering with the old asthma at the moment back on the steroids boo hoo. Still hopefully I will improve soon. Just when you thought it was ok to go out more snow! I hope if you have bad weather too you will take care out there brrr!

My card today is another Magnolia image from the latest Magnolia Stampclub. I have coloured Edwin with distress inks. The background has been distressed with vintage photo and I have stamped the heart swirls and added a clear sparkle pen over them.

I have distressed the papers and stars with vintage photo. The flowers have been glimmer misted with iridescent gold and gold stickles.

I would like to say a humongous thank you to a most wonderfully talented young lady Hanna for giving me this award.


If you have not visited Hanna I would urge you to say hello as Hanna is just one of the sweetest girls ever plus Hanna’s cards are out of this world!

Thank you so much for visiting me and for your very lovely comments they mean so much! Take care and have a fabulous day!

Kim I'm so sorry your asthma is playing up hun, I know what it's like to suffer from it and have to keep taking steroids, the cold can really affect mine too, roll on the spring!
Stunning card, the heart and stars stamps are gorgeous, your flowers, distressing and colouring are all perfect as always, love it.
Take care, and don't over do it when the steroids give you that false energy boost!
