Nora with ducks and umbrella

Hello, all! Hope you are having a wonderful week so far! We are having some really cold days and we apparently have the chance to have some snow at sea level in the next day or two. That should be fun if it really happens! =)

Here is a card that I made using one of Whiff of Joy Stamps' lovely February release.


Don't you love this sweet image? It made me smile and it's so fun to color!


This image is called Nora with ducks and umbrella. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.


The patterned paper is from the lovely Furehlingserwachen 6x6 pad. I finally used some of my much neglected Prim flowers... =) The button twine is Desert Sand also from Whiff of Joy. I used the Apron Lace border punch (it's on sale!) on one of the patterned paper.

That's all from me today. Hope you have a lovely sunny day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you for your hard work to collect and organize, to share with you a lot about the fashion thing, and this is very useful to me.
