Wonderful Wednesday.......

Hello,

Goodness, I cannot believe that it is Wednesday already. Hope you are all ok and everything is good in your world.

I have been having a great time playing with my new distress inks. I was given this adorable stamped Magnolia image by the lovely sweet Sarah. Thank you so much Sarah I have so loved colouring her. So much so that I just had to buy her. 


She is coloured with ranger distress ink pads. The background is distressed with pumice stone. I have edged this and my papers, flowers, leaves and butterfly with walnut stain. The stickles I have used are Star Dust. 

The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch as are the leaves. The tiny flowers are punched with an E K Success punch.


Thank you so very much for visiting me, and for all your comments I give you a big hug they mean so much.

Have a most wonderful day it is my 32nd wedding anniversary tomorrow. (gulp) So lots of celebrating will be happening over the next few days and the weekend.

love
