Just Magnolia / Stamp Something

Good morning everyone, bet you all thought I had vanished for good, lol. I have a few days off work at the moment but I am so busy, I haven't had any craft time yet - shocking I know!!! I am going to make sure I set some time aside to play but also to catch up with you all, I have been such a bad blogger recently.

We have a fabulous sketch this week on Just Magnolia by our super talented Tab (who by the way has recently been added as DT member to the fabulous Magnolia ). It is a really lovely sketch and great for using up those offcuts of paper we all have in our scrap boxes. I am also entering my card into the challenge on SCSC whose theme is spots and stripes.

I have used more stamps from the summer kit - I really think this kit is just fab and I love all the stamps in it. The flower centres are cute little sparkly adhesive gems by Papermania and I love them!!

A closer look at the layers on my card. I used some gorgeous Bazzill Basics from Tracy at Dies to Die for along with the scrummy papers from MME Bloom and Grow pack that she sent me to play with.

Remember to pop along to see the rest of the gorgeous DT creations .... hope you can all join in this week.

This week on Stamp Something we have a real favourite theme of mine ....
Bugs, Butterflies or other winged somethings
I know you all have an image with some wings on so get stamping and join in the fun!

We also have a bit of DT news for you. Sadly the lovely Alex is having to stand down due to work committments - I will miss you hun! We do have a shiny new DT member though so I would like to welcome Janna to our team.
We are sponsored by Fred She Said this week and we were all sent these cute Little Miss Bitty images to play with. Isn't she just the cutest little bug, lol. I have followed this weeks sketch from Stamp with Fun - just love it!

I have had my fun flock out again for the dots on her dress and can you see more use of those little sparkly gems by PM. I really love the brads on this card, it isn't very often you can use black (well not for me, lol) so these were just what I needed for that finishing touch.

More stunning papers from Bearly Mine Designs - these are from Designer Extreme Vol I & II and also the Designer Inserts Extreme CD. As you can see they all match perfectly - easy peasy!!

Have a great day - I am off to meet a friend that I did my training with for a spot of lunch and a browse around the sales (well, it would be rude not to, lol).
Catch you all tomorrow
