Announcement.....

Wow, interesting Christmas... we had a wonderful time and we were very spoilt with all the gorgeous gifts and beautiful cards! But my two little ones were struck with this flu virus and it seems impossible to shift, they slept most of Christmas day which thankfully didn't stop them enjoying opening their pressies!
This is a card I made for my boyfriend to celebrate our second year together on the 22nd Dec...


I went with the distressed manly look, but added as much glitter & bling as I could get away with! The heart has crackle paint which I then inked over with brilliance red. I used a LOT of distressed ink on the image and really roughed up the edges! It's not easy to see but I added glitter to the lake... for reflective purposes...

click images to get a close look!

Materials:
Paper: K&Co, cream cardstock, DCWV glitter card, chipboard,
Die's: Sissix - heart, Quickutz - wings, name plate,
Stamps: Personal Impressions - man fishing, see D's - gone fishing, fancy pants - pollen dust
Ink: Tim's - distress inks', crackle paint, brilliance red, versamark, stardust pen.
Other: Adhesive pretty gems, 3d foam, edge distresser, waterbrush.
So on to the other news... on our anniversary Steve was in fact working nights so we celebrated the next day. He got down on one knee in the restaurant with the pretence of picking up napkin and asked me to marry him... (soooo romantic) and I said.... well yes. We got a huge round of applause and some bubbly... now on to the RING...

Beautiful hey? so next it'll be lots of designing for invites!!! How exciting!!! I told Dillon we were getting married and he asked if he could watch (bless) I told him he would be very much involved and he said COOL!!! Hope you all have a fantastic and Very Special New Year, Lots of Love and HuGs Kim x
