Fabulous Friday...

Hello,

The weekend is nearly here!

Can I say a very, very, big thank you to you all for your wonderful kind wishes for Luca and Isabella's operations. They both were very successful and Claire and I took great comfort from your lovely words and kindness. So we are sending back big hugs!

Today I have a card I made for a very special and an amazingly generous and sweet blogging friend.


I have coloured Magnolia's Tilda with distress inks. I have distressed the edges with walnut stain. 
The stickles I have added are star dust and platinum.


I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside left.


Also, the inside right.


Thank you so very much for your visit.
I wish you a very lovely weekend. Luca was six this week. So it is party time for us this weekend. 

love

Sending hugs to you.....

Hello,

I hope that you are enjoying life and I still can't believe we are into October already!

Here is a card I made using Magnolia's sweet Tilda.


I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads. Stamped onto 300gsm (140lbs) hp watercolour paper. I have die cut ovals using nesties and pin pricked around the edge which has been distressed with walnut stain. The stickles I have added are star dust and I have added some crackle paint translucent to the flowers. The tag and leaves are Doohickey dies.

I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside left.


The butterfly is a Magnolia Doohickey die.

Here is the inside right.


Leaving enough room for your message. The leaf is also a Magnolia Doohickey die. I have added liquid pearls around the roses.

A close up of sweet Tilda.


Thank you so much for your visit! I wish you all a wonderful week ahead. My Grandchildren are both having operations this week on separate days so it will be all hands on deck. 

love
