After the Acetate challenge last week we have a nice easy sketch by Dawny P to follow for this week’s Just Magnolia challenge. And I have once again made an easel card (getting to be so predictable lol)
I forgot I had this stamp, I was mooching the other night and found a bag of stamps I got at the NEC last November that I can’t even remember buying!! So I get to play with my “new” Christmas Magnolias in time for Christmas, unlike last year when they got the Christmas stamps out so late it seemed a waste of time even buying them! Hope they get their act together this year (can’t see it though as we’re almost in autumn and the summer kit has just come out lol).
I have used Memory Box papers (Spearmint) from Quixotic Paperie – I am in love with these papers, every pack I have bought is just so gorgeous. I coloured the image with distress inks again and ….. shock, horror much much prefer using Copics and Promarkers. I never thought I would say that lol. What a traitor lol.
The sentiment on the front of the card is Anna Griffin, the sentiment on the base was in a grab-bag I picked up off Ebay. No make or name sadly. I went round the edges of the paper with my sewing machine and then applied some Distress Paint.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have used 35mm Wild Roses, 30mm Wild roses, 15mm roses, 6mm rose buds and 4mm rose buds. The aqua roses were pale green so I spritzed them with Glimmer Mist to change the colour a bit. The white roses have been spritzed with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist. The pearls are also from Wild Orchid Crafts.
A quick update on my hubby. He is doing okay, still very tired but looking so much better than he did last Friday. We’ve elected to see a Cardiologist privately as the wait on the NHS is quite a long one and we both want to get this sorted asap. We are both so afraid this happens again so the sooner they find out what caused his heart to go haywire the better. Thanks so much to all that have emailed, phoned, sent cards and even flowers (and some lottery tickets too lol) – you are all so amazing xxxxxThanks for stopping by,
