Super Saturday.....

Hello,

I hope you are all well and life is being good to you. Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. I had a fantastic time and got the most amazing cards from my friends boy your talent is incredible I can't stop looking at them and some scrummy crafting goodies too thank you!


I would like to show you a card I made for a sweet friend who has just celebrated her birthday.

I have stamped my Magnolia image with versafine black onyx onto Waterford 300gsm water colour paper. I have coloured her with distress ink pads. The background is distressed with antique linen and that and everything else has been edged with vintage photo. The punched flowers are ek success. The leaves are  Magnolia. The heart border is Martha Stewart. The stickles I have added are Star Dust. 

I have been given this award from the wonderfully talented Suze.


Thank you so much Suze you are so lovely to think of me I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits me as a big thank you for your amazing support to me.


Thank you so much for visiting me. I wish you all a most wonderful weekend. The weather here is looking mighty fine so I am going to be out there enjoying this marvellous sunshine I hope you can too!

love
