Make a wish.

Hello little bloggy :-)


It's a gorgeous Spring here in north devon. I hope it is the same where you are?

On Easter Monday Ali and I went out to walk Minty in the early evening and it was so gorgeous we ended up on the cliffs and decided to go up to the top. You don't make that decision lightly, it is steep.




We paused at the top at the lookout marker. 
We also sat on the benches at the viewpoints on the way up, cuddling, watching the birds swoop and listen to them call, we designed our ultimate computer game that we would like to design (if we were 100% more proficient in any area that making a computer game requires ;-)). We just mainly enjoyed the incredible peace and quiet.


Minty was ok with a sit down too.

A dandelion to make a wish on is irresistible to him and to me.


I don't know how I managed to catch the 'wish' but I am thrilled that I did.


I bought Allison Kreft's Sprinkled With Love collection, I adored her christmas collection and I think I love this one more, ombre hearts, gorgeous, I literally sighed and felt my heart catch when it arrived. Does that happen to you?


Here is the accompanying pocket page. The 3x4 cards are a cut apart from the collection too. The honeycomb gold on vellum in Studio Calico. Wooden 'enamel' dots are from MME.

I used my sizzix eclips to cut the swirls and then used the cut out as a layer and also as a mask. I coloured using chalks and mists and shine. Thanks for taking a look.
