Stamp Something / Just Magnolia #2


Morning, so pleased it is Friday again! What glorious weather we are having - I hope it lasts through the weekend :o)
It is not sunshine on our challenge this week though because we want to see ...


I decided to use these beautiful stamps from Whiff of Joy and opted for a single colour scheme influenced by a great song .... Purple Rain, ok - a little corny but I can handle it, lol. Papers are from a recent win from the lovely Michelle (thanks hun) and I love them!

I have kept my card quite simple - liked it better this way, some cards just don't need much adding to them. Insert is very simple also so no piccie taken. Pop over to the Stamp Something blog for details of this weeks sponsor and for the fab inspiration by the DT.



OMG, what an incredible first week!! I have been completely blown away by you all. Thankyou so much to everyone who is following the blog and for the 350+ who entered last weeks challenge ..... you are all amazing!!! Make sure you pop over to Just Magnolia to see if you won last weeks huge prize and to see the wonderful prize that is on offer this week from our sponsor.

To enter we would love to see your creations contain


I was delighted with this weeks challenge because this is one of my favourite colour combos and I knew straight away which papers I wanted to use. I have a mixture of papers from Making Memories and the Bearly Mine CD. Picking which gorgeous stamp was much more difficult but I settled for this beautiful one of Tilda blowing her sparkly hearts.

Lots of glamour dust for her wings and hearts and a few heart shaped gems from my stash. Again, another simple insert so won't bore you with that. I just know you will all be drooling over the gorgeous cards by the rest of the DT, they are stunning again this week.

I can't wait to pay you all a visit so remember to add your creation to Mr Linky! See you soon xxx
