so Sweet.

what a lovely weekend it's been here in sunny Westhoughton. and this evening is moving along nicely my garden has been tided, disappointing solar lights bought on friday removed from my bay tree to go back to the garden center.
i have to say in-between all my house titty vatting  i've had a lovely crafty afternoon playing and making various bits and bobs to embellish my makes, and on my card this evening is one of them.
my share tonight is a baby girl card and she is so sweet. i have painted her with my distress ink hope you all like what i have created:
