Quotes - Genius



it's quotes for Lotstodo this week and i'd even done this one on the Thursday before!! for once I'm not running behind. I've had a play in my craftvan at last.

I've taken a piece of dark blue cardstock through a cuttlebug folder.. put gesso on it and when nearly dry wiped that with a wet wipe. I love the effect.

The quote is from a set from Cornishheritagefarms

Eigenlijk moet ik iedere dag wel een kijkje nemen op jouw Blog, helaas komt dat er niet van. Wat heb je weer mooie dingen gemaakt.
En nog super bedankt voor je prachtige kaart!!! En die stempel die gevallen is maakt hem zeer speciaal, ik vind het juist wel mooi.

Groetjes Marjolijn.
