Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
I would like to say a very warm welcome to my newest follower, and thank you so much for joining me in my crafty journey.
I do hope you can visit when ever your time allows.
I would also like to say a big
 THANK YOU to all my followers that always visit me on a regular basis, and leave such heart warming comments on my work.

Today I have a card  I made just because I loved the image.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
The card I used was from Hunkydory's first set of images all done with a mirri finish, and they are all so gorgeous too.
As the card was so pretty to start with, I just added some die cut flowers, a corner die cut, and some seam binding ribbon that I dyed with Peacock Feathers DI.
 Sadly the mirri finish doesn't show up much in the photo.

Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I can see why you liked that image. It is really beautiful and so is your finished card. The corner embellishments are so perfectly matched, I would have thought they came with a ket. You made a good choice there!

Morning Jenny, You are right, this image is gorgeous, as is your card. All pulled together with Peacock Feathers DI, very aptly named for this card.
Enjoy your day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hello there me little blogging matey - sometimes you just find an image that you want to use where you don't need many embellishments and this is one of them! Such a pretty and your finished card is super.

Lots of big hugs to you both Sue Pxxx and Pidgy xx

PS Doorstops are in the post - we've been watching a little wren in the garden and getting side-tracked as usual!
