Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge and my new light

Woohoo I am up and running with Photoshop again.  What a nightmare to try and get it fixed without shelling out more money.  It’s only a temporary fix as the settings keep going back to the wrong settings so I have to change them for each photo I try and work with but at least it’s better than coughing up more money for a different version.  Thank goodness for an uber geeky son that loves fiddling on the computer lol.  (His wife calls him a geek as well as he has to have all the latest gadgets, all the magazines, et al lol).  Thanks son mwah xx

Before I get on to my card I must make a quick mention of my new Daylight Table Top Lamp that arrived the other day.  I already have a daylight lamp but it’s really old so when I was approached by The Daylight Lamp Company to review one of their lamps I chose the table top lamp.  I love it and can’t believe the difference this has made (now I can really see all my mistakes!!)   The head of the lamp is long and slim so can be pulled right over the centre of my desk – talk about a light-bulb moment when I used it the first time lol.  I am well impressed, so much so it has made my beloved old lamp redundant and that’s saying something, I was really quite attached to it lol.

So, enough waffle Bev, here’s the card that was supposed to be on my blog on Friday for this week’s Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge hosted by the lovely Jacqui.

I used those delish Nitwit papers that I got from Which Craft UK, I am loving reds at the mo (busy working on a couple of big commissions and keep on reaching for the red – guess I am going to sicken myself soon but best not as one of them is for Christmas cards!!  Gulp I have never made a Christmas card this early before lol).

The gorge flowers, lace and seam binding are all from Wild Orchid Crafts – I used cherry blossoms, 15mm roses and a trellis rose.  The Divine Twine is also from WOC and is new in stock along with loads of other new goodies and lots more amazing stuff soon to arrive.  I am drooling at the thought lol.   The kisses button is from my button jar and for the life of me I can’t remember where I got it.  The ticket sentiment is a combo of two stamps – the ticket is from Whimsy Stamps and the sentiment is from the Autumn Leaves Ticketed stamp sheet.

Must dash, need to get one of my commissions finished and in the mail on Tuesday eek.

Enjoy your bank holiday weekend.
