Hi all!

A bit of sunshine on this dark,cold and rainy day!
Photo is of Tessa and taken at her birthday this year.
Didn't want to embellish it to much because I really love the way the background turned out.

Misting, masking, stitching and stamping, all the fun stuff!!
Made the pink and yellow flowers from some lovely thread I found the other day and these were my inspiration for this page.
The gorgeous chippie is from Dusty Attic, Ornate Corner #2 DA 0315

Some details:

the lovely thread I used for the flowers.

Have a wonderful day!
