Flowery Mimi

Flowery Mimi was one of my latest DT kit stamps - isn't she just the sweetest, love her outfit lol. I had these Nana's Nursery papers still out from the other day so lazy me decided to use them on this card, love these soft pretty pastel colours.

I'm entering this card in two challenges - A Spoonful of Sugar which is to use die cuts and punches - lots of this going on here and I have used the fab sketch on Sketch and Stash Challenge blog and my card fits this challenge as the stamp and the velvet and organza pleated ribbon is new. How brave was I to cut this ribbon - this is definitely the kind you stroke then put back lol.

  34. Such a beautiful card Bev!! I have to confess today that I come and stalk here on your blog everyday.. and I know you know it! Many times I used to leave you a comment, but many times these days I go through the post, and find you already have 100 comments, or some less sometimes. Then I say : Bah.. she doesn't definitely need mine!!! :)) I'm not that important! So that's the reason!! :) But today I'm one of the "first!!" lol

    Hugs to you dear.. and happy Sunday xx

  42. More gorgeous cards Bev! And you're right - you are brave to cut that ribbon! I couldn't do it!!

    I hope you don't mind, but I have a couple of questions...
    1. What brads do you use, or what do you use to fit through the very small holes in some of the spacers/bead covers to attch them to your card?

    & 2. Where do you get your magnolia club stamps from?

    Hope I'm not being too cheeky to ask, but I've always said "if you don't ask, you don't get"!!
