Family Ties

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How is everyone today?  Well that is everything done until later in the year!

Did you have a nice New Year? We had a quiet one just hubby, my fur babies and me.

Some happy news to share too my son got engaged yesterday! Both hubby and I are over the moon.
Congratulations Veli and Holly!

Another card to share using some of Sheena Douglass' products.

Step by Step

1, 8 x 8 square cream card.
2. Matted and layered blue and Kraft card onto base card.
3. I created the background using DI ground espresso and stormy sky. I then used Grunge tree stencil and DI ground espresso,  using part of the floral canopy stencil, stencilled some of the wild flowers with DI scattered straw.
4. To finish off stamped the sentiment.
