Just Magnolia

Happy Friday (thank goodness lol).  I almost forgot to schedule this post eek.  It’s now 2.30am and I am ready for BED!!  I have had quite a bit of behind the scenes work to get done so have been squeezing in my daily cards where I can.  The pics are not the best, I photographed with the light tent again (hate that blessed thing).

Our challenge on Just Magnolia this week is another of Dawny P’s amazing sketches.  I do so love working with them.  I dug out some Eline’s Baby Boy papers and did I have a job trying to get the blue on Tilda’s dress to match.  I coloured the image five times, this is the best of the lot and I ain’t colouring it again.  I even resorted to distress inks and guess what – me no likey them any more rofl.  Soooo contrary!

The sentiment is from the soon to be released circular sentiment stamps from Lili of the Valley.  They go on sale at the NEC next Thursday and on the website on the 12th November.  I have a feeling these sentiment stamps are going to be my most used!

The flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts (what would I do without them!!!!).  I used 30mm Wild Roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses, 4mm rose buds, 8mm semi open roses and cherry blossoms.

The sentiment on the base of the card I have had for years and can’t remember who it is by although WS designs springs to mind.  I have used a Martha Stewart Vintage Lace punch and a Monarch Butterfly punch and also a Doo Hickey Tag die which is not showing up very well because I did it the same yellow as the backing card – not such a good idea there Bev!

That’s all from me, I’ll be back later with the Promarker candy winner and the new Magnolia candy draw.

Thanks for stopping by,
