More Bokeh!

Well hello there! How are you? I'm good and have had a good couple of days - I tried a new class today too - body balance - its a mix of yoga and tai chi and was very good! I'm having a bit of a giggle tomorrow - I've signed up for a belly dancing class! I'll let you know how that one goes!

Today I've got my good friend Sandy's birthday card to share with you - I'm pretty sure she doesn't look at my blog so here it is:


Here's a close up:


Its that bokeh look again done using Jo's bubbles stencil and distress inks - mowed lawn, shabby shutters and cracked pistachio plus white brilliance ink. I have also used chocolate baroque stamps plus a TH one too! I used glossy accents on the butterflies after faux bleaching them!

Big hugs to you all! Have a great evening!

Hugs

  19. I've heard that belly dancing is lots of fun...had a friend who took it for laughs, and really got into it for the long term. Builds good abdominal muscles - she said anyway! Loving this lovely spring color and the bokeh is so pretty with these delicate dragonflies. I'm seeing several bokeh looks surfing around. Gotta try that! Happy wkend, glad you are having some good days, & TFS. Hugs
