Create4Fun challenge, another easel card and the result of my “test”

I was so busy with DT work yesterday I clean forgot to post my card for this weeks Create4Fun challenge. The challenge is to make a baby card so I automatically reaching for this little baby with his blanket from Lili of the Valley.


Oh the colour on the photo is awful – I will have to try and retake it today in better light. It was another last minute card – I used it for my screen test at Create and Craft on Friday. Yep that was the big test I was worrying about last week. Glad to say it went well (okay I lie – it was really tough lol) but we did it and will be doing a live show in July for Lili of the Valley!! Whoop whoop!!! When the live bit was mentioned you could have scraped us off the carpet lol. Jacqui and I are doing it together along with either Lisa or Laila, (to keep us right lol). Jacqui has been poorly but was determined to be there, hugs to you sweetie, I hope you feel better soon xxx

My next card is another Magnolia easel card – I did this one as a commission similar to the pleated lace one I did the other week for the Just Magnolia challenge. So you’re not really seeing double lol – the image and papers are different.


I used the same flowers and Princess die cut – so predictable lol. The papers are Basic Grey Porcelain, the flowers I used are the Classic Sweet Roses, 20mm roses, 15mm roses, 10mm roses and 5mm rosebuds. Lots of stickles on her gloves, tiara, socks and petticoat. I also used the tiniest of flatback crystals (1mm) on her tiara and on her dress.


Last shot – I hate trying to photograph easel cards, they are the pits!!


That’s all for today – I’m going back to my DT work, I am so behind (again).

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday,
