 Hello everyone,

After a year has gone by and in retirement I still say every week, yay, Friday, my day off..and that is today over here..Friday, my day off..which means I do not have to get dressed or go out or do anything I don't want to and it is a habit I cannot seem to get out I may as well craft all day 😂

I'm sharing a card I made using a beautiful image from Gecko Galz and it is their challenge I'm entering called Blooming Beauties..

Not only a card I made a box too..inked the edges and distressed them a bit..

I really need some firmer cardstock for boxes..

I love this gorgeous vintage image, she is soft and serene..

She looks lovely, and the beautiful lace with roses and pearls is from my stash..

and I added sweetheart blossoms in pale peach and pink colours..

And done..

Thank you so much for stopping by, I'm just going to slop around and do stuff so I will see you tomorrow..
