Just Magnolia / Stamp Something

Good morning my lovlies, well the sun is still shining but I think it is going to cool slightly over the next few days which will provide a bit of relief from the heat. It has been fab to have such glorious weather though .... wish we had it every day :o)

This week on Just Magnolia we would love to see you using charms .... I love charms so this was a fun challenge for me!

The lovely weather has inspired me to make an ice-creamy card .... neapolitan .... mmmmmmmm, why have 1 flavour when you can have 3!!!!! I really like these sweet papers and it has been so lobg since I used them ... in fact I don't think I have used the butterfly papers before, not sure why because they are so lovely.

Make sure you visit the rest of the DT;s blogs for amazing inspiration and scrummy charms by the bucketful! Also, full details of this weeks prize from our sponson Simon Says Stamp are on the main JM blog.

It is a week for digging deep into my stash and playing with things I had forgotten all about. This week on Stamp Something it is Christmas in July ... so you had better all make a start on those christmas cards!!

I have used an old favourite of mine. The Forever Friends images are so sweet and easy to colour.I decided to stick to traditional colours this time and used these fab papers by Doodlebug from DTDF .

I have added some fun flock to the fur and on the ground as snow. This adds some real texture to the image and also the required bit of bling too!!!! Head over to the blog for a peep at the great DT cards and also news about the prize from Firecracker, our sponsor this week.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of the sunshine ... I am off to work now :o(
