Stupendous Saturday......


Here we are at the weekend yay! I have had quite a hectic week. Our decorator is still beavering away and this time in our bedroom which with me being a creature of habit has been so hard. Living in the middle of the room. Not being able to read at night as no curtains or table lamp. Plus trying to find everything that I moved each day just to get ready. But, I am pleased to say he has now finished our room and I can today put it all back together again phew! I would like to share with you today a Wedding Frame I made for Crafts U Love.

I stood it next to a silver candle lamp that my daughter Claire bought for me. I love it Claire knows just what I like I am so lucky to have her. I first of all painted the frame with Ranger's paint dabbers in white. Then I sprayed it with iridescent gold glimmer mist. Then I coloured my Magnolia images with distress ink pads.

I also added star dust stickle glue for my sprinkly spronkly.

I used the new Magnolia Doo Hickey dies which I love! Here is the Swirl and Leaf and the Flower. Which has all been glimmered and stickled to death.

I added crackle paint to the tag and here you can see the teeny tiny stamps that I bought at the NEC from the Magnolia stand which I love to use.

Here is the other reason that I have been anxious over. My adorable Grandson Luca. He started school this week and I was more nervous than him. Here is is on his second day of school on a visit to me to show me his school uniform and I am pleased to report everything was great! ( I love the socks just like my Son used be neither up nor down) As you can see by the smile on his face he is so happy to be a big boy now and loves school another phew! Unfortunately, he has to have another operation on his eyes next week. Which will disrupt his settling in so please say a little one for him that the operation is successful and that it doesn't affect his starting his new school. Needless to say I will be all over the place, but I know that he is in good hands at Great Ormond Street hospital those surgeons are geniuses!

Well, sorry it has been a long post and I thank you so much for your visit and I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Angela said...

Beautifull frame and love your swirls and flowers!!
All your cards are so beautifull!!

Kat said...

This is stunning Kim. These doohickey dies are really lovely.

What a lovely photo of Luca. He looks so smart with his uniform and schoolbag. I agree that time passes too quickly. I can hardly believe that Poppy will soon be 3 and Oliver 1! I'm sure Luca will be in very safe hands for his operation but that doesn't stop you being anxious about him. Hope all goes well for him.

Sol said...

Mandy said...

Luca looks adorable in his school uniforn, I'm so pleased he enjoyed it, those socks bring back memories lol.
Hope all goes well with his operation, I will say a little one for you all, hope your nerves hold up
hugs Mandy xx

Diane said...

I somehow missed this post when you put it up, Kim but I'm glad I finally found it because this is sooooo gorgeous!
I'll definitely say a little one for Luca - he looks so happy in this photo and I'm sure he'll soon bounce back after his surgery.
