International Highlights Top 10 Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to this very special blog hop. We are from all over the world and each placed in the top ten of Kylie Bertucci's December and January International Blog Highlight. I'm Lou Kitzelman from the Sunshine Coast, Australia and I was lucky enough to be chosen in the top ten for both. Take a look at my winning Taco card and Balloon Card.

If you are a regular you will know that I love 💗 my watercolour pencils. Today I have teamed them with the gorgeous Dragonfly Dreams bundle for an elegant card that is perfect for a very special friend.

The watercolour washes are perfect for behind the dragonfly and sentiment.

The Lace Doilies are so elegant. Did you know that they are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other? I love this tone on tone look.

Don't forget about the Sale-a-bration promotion that is on until March 30. Spend $90 AUD and you can choose from one of the beautiful and FREE products. For example if you bought the Dragonfly Dreams bundle and the Watercolour Pencils you could get this gorgeous metallic ribbon for FREE.

And of course don't forget to show your card inside some love too!

Well thanks for dropping by. Make sure you check out everyone in the blog hop. The list below will help you to get around to see the fabulous projects that everyone has made for you.
