Tulip Willow in blue


Gosh you can tell my husband is off this week I have managed to finish 3 cards - unheard of normally. We have just got back from a weekend camping with Cathy. The weather was mixed although we did not make the beach due to my wonderful husband not feeling well (I call it a hangover) and so I am making the most of him feeling guilty! I did for once dress up in 17th Century clothes as did the boys (Cathy bribed Ed with an ice-lolly) so we could go rounf Bodnant Gardens which are so beautiful. Unfortunately I had forgotten the camera so no pictures sorry.

Anyway my card! Willow from the spring kit has been coloured in distressed inks and then mounted using the sketch on Whiff of Joy this week which I have flipped and rotated as I wanted to use a long image. The papers are a new pad of K and Co Tim Coffrey Tulips which I used for the first time. The flowers are prima and have been glimmer misted which I think you can see on the photo as I have been able to shock take in the lovely sunlight outside! (Yes I have a load of washing on the line too as it has a lovely breeze too this afternoon). The ribbon and lace are stash. I do hope you like it x
