Stamp Something / Just Magnolia


Good morning, time for our last blogoversary challenge on Stamp Something and this week we are honouring Emily . Over her time on the DT Emily has produced lots of wonderful sketches for us so this week it is a sketch challenge. There is a sketch to follow on the SS page or you can use any of Emily's old sketches if you prefer.



I decided to use an old favourite of mine and followed this fabulous sketch from earlier this year.




A closer look at this adorable SN image, she is definately one of my favourites and has the sweetest of faces. I have used my chalk around the edges again and I do like this look, especially when I do not mat and layer my image. Have a look at all the other lovely creations by the DT and remember to pop over to Emily and wish her well as she prepares to leave us :o(

Are you all ready for a challenge???? Wow, this sure challenged me this week and I was tearing my hair out, lol. This week on Just Magnolia we want to see you all
Get in shape!




Don't panic, you don't have to get your trainers on head down to the gym. No, we want to see some fabulous shaped cards please. That's right - no boring old square cards allowed! I have used this lovely template that is available from our sponsors this week, The Cutting Cafe' . It is a really cute size and perfect for cute little Tilda with her lamb.




I have picked my colours from the flowers on the paper and kept it all very simple. It is only a small card but I still managed to fit 4 flowers on, lol, and could have managed more but I restrained myself. I have used a lovely angel charm to finish. The image just made me think of 'The Lord is my Shepherd' so that is why the little angel is there - watching over Tilda.
Anyway, get yourself over to Just Magnolia and join in. Remember to link directly to your card please (sorry Mr Linky was naughty last night and went awol .... slap his legs!!). Looking forward to looking at your cards, have a fab day :o)
