Just Magnolia #5 / Stamp Something




Good morning my lovlies .... how are you all today? Excited that it is Friday? You should be because we have another fabulous challenge for you today on Just Magnolia. We have a fabulous sketch to follow by our very own Naoual and it is a beauty!!! I love sketches and this is just fab - you are going to want to use it over and over!



I have to say that this is one of my favourite cards I have ever made. Now this is quite a moment for me to like my own card - you know we are our own worst critics!! But you know what, it just came together so easy. These gorgeous BG papers were just what I wanted for this great sketch.



I love how it looks like little Tilda is running happily to see that special someone she loves. As if an unexpected visit from her favourite friend - so adorable. I have masked the flowers onto Tilda to create this lovely meadow using my WOJ stamp and the little butterfly is from a Messy Rabbit set. I had great fun and think I may have discovered a new favourite colour combo too!


I am so sorry I have not commented very much this week. My sore tooth paired with mine and my husband's birthdays have meant I have not had as much time online. Promise to do better next week :o)


-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-


Here we are again, another week closer to my wonderful DT friends leaving us on Stamp Something and this week we are honouring Lauren . The theme is 'thankyou somethings' and we want you to make it clean and simple, using the gorgeous lines and styles that Lauren is so well known for.


First of all apologies forthe poor piccie - this will be rectified as soon as I get chance for a daylight photo (edited .... sort of). Now, this is as clean and simple as I get, lol. No flowers and no embellies (apart from the sneaky card candy). I have kept my colours to a minimum and concentrated on matting and layering my image to create it as the focul point of my card.

Hopefully my new piccies will show this fab glitter flock that I used for the PP sheep. It looks so fab in real life - really textured and sparkly too! I can see this featuring onlots of my christmas cards this year!
I have also used my swiss dots folder - a real favourite on Laurens creations - nice to have a little bit more interest :o)

I hope you can joinus this week and don't forget that we are still looking for new DT members to join us .... so what's stopping you, get those gorgeous creations linked up to Mr Linky!!!!

Oh Marcea, Im so sorry about your tooth, you really should get it removed, Ive had lots of problems with mine, I find Im always worried the abcess would return, are you having a root filling? I absolutely love your cards, and the Tilda one especially as I love purples anyway, the other card is very cool, lovely and beautiful love, hope things soon improve. love and hugs Shirleyxxxx
