Sending a String of Hearts.....


I hope life is good with you and you are having a wonderful weekend!

I have been a poorly person in da house this last couple of weeks and am now at last starting to feel human again with my trusty roids. So please accept my apologies for not being able to visit you, I thank you so much for all your lovely comments.

 Luckily, here is a card I made earlier.

I have used another sweet Tilda from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection. This is Ribbon Tilda.

I have coloured my images in with distress inks. Added some sparkle using Star Dust Stickles and Sakura clear sparkle pen.

The Holly and Acorns from the same Sweet Dreams Collection have been heat embossed and cut out after distress ink colouring.

I have decorated the inside.

Here is the inside left.

The Mistletoe is a previous Magnolia Christmas image. 
The gorgeous Magnolia paper has been pin pricked all round the edge and I have added some Ranger Glossy Accents clear glue to high light some of the hearts.

Here is the inside right.

Lots of distressing with Walnut Stain and stickle glue.

A close up of Ribbon Tilda.

Thank you so very much for visiting with me.

I am so looking forward to getting my strength back and start crafting again. It's killing me not playing with my inks. Also, isn't it always the way when you are under pressure wanting to get going on Christmas cards, presents etc., lol! I hope you are all getting on top of your Christmas lists and card making. Absolutely love this time of year!

hugs and love
