Love you so very much!

Hello my friends!

I hope you all had a great holiday!This is my first post after a long time…so I would like to start by wishing you a very Happy New Year!

New year means new beginnings…which, in turn, sometimes means using new products πŸ™‚ So, in my case, it meant using my brand new “TCW-Mini Speciments” stencil. This beautiful stencil has been designed by Rebekah Meier and it has been on the market for quite a while…but I just got the chance to buy it so it’s the very first time I used it…and I loved it!!!

I decided to start my crafting year using some of my favorite mediums…so I combined watercolors, distress inks, stamps, stencils and embossing powder to create a photo frame for a person I love so very much. Hope you like it and get inspired!

As usual, I used my little project to take part in a few challenges. A full list of them is displayed below. Feel free to join them or just pay them a visit to have a look at these ladies’ stunning creations!
