Sending happiness......

Hello,

Here we are another Holiday weekend. I hope you have lots of great things planned. I am going to be in my garden and enjoy the beautiful weather. Yesterday I was glued to the television from 8am to 11.30pm watching the Royal Wedding and then all the footage again. I ate up every last minute of it and loved every magical moment! Huge congratulations to such a beautiful couple!


I have made a card with celebration in mind using Magnolia's Tilda with Balloon from the You are so Special collection.

I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads onto 300gsm watercolour paper.

I have distressed the background with pumice stone and edged this and everything on the card with walnut stain.

I have die cut the tag and fence using Magnolia's Doohickey dies. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.


I have added some gauze around my card and the stickle glue I have added is star dust.


I have decorated the inside of my card.


The two little tags are quickutz.


The oval die cuts are nestablities. The button was a gift from my sweet friend Serena thank you!


Thank you so very much for your visit and I wish you a most fabulous weekend!

A quick update on Luca. Thank you all so much for all of your support. It means so much and I am very happy to report that the operation went very well and we are keeping everything crossed that he will respond well to this last procedure.

I would like to enter my card into the Sukkersott challenge which is to include butterflies.

love
