LOTV - Thomas with Big Flowers

Hello blogging friends.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend and enjoying the sun or a crafty session. 

Russ and I went the The Hobby House today for my much needed supply of embellishments. Such a beautiful place to look around on a sunny day. As well as the craft shop, they have a cafe, a garden nursery and animals. I have never been so close to such beautiful birds. We were going to have lunch there but I said I would like to go to Witchcraft in Doncaster for some Pion and Maja papers, so off we went. He is so good to me. 
We are back home now and Russ is now enjoying or hopefully is going to enjoy the Everton game. Come on you Toffees. 

I have a card to show you today which is a commission for a work colleague. I am safe to show it now as her birthday is today. Because the recipient is a cat love I bought Thomas - Big bunch flowers and here is the card.
The links to all the products used will be at the bottom of the post. 

I have coloured the image with Distress Markers.  The butterfly is Magnolia Doo Hickey - my favourite butterfly at the moment. It has had Frantage in Shabby White added. 

The flowers are from Live and Love Crafts and LOTV. The papers are from Maja Design.
The pearl and rhinestone gems are from The Hobby House.
