Stamp Something / Just Magnolia

Good morning .... I can hardly believe what I am seeing this morning ... sunshine!!! Woohoo, not a cloud in the sky! It is about time we had a nice day for a change :o)
Time for a new challenge on Stamp Something and it is an old favourite of mine .....
Paper Piecing

We are sponsored by Whiff of Joy so I have used one of my most favourite stamps in the whole world .... isn't Melinda so beautiful. I have paper pieced her trousers and top and also her hair band and bobble with BG papers. I used some vellum for her wings but have to admit I prefer glamour dust for this so would probably use that next time. The yummy MSBP has been used lots and lots and don.t you just love these pretty Bo Bunny flowers (you can buy them from Dies to die For here )

I have added a little sparkle by using a pink sakura stardust pen for the little hearts and also the details on her clothes and bracelet.

I am also entering my card for the following challenges...

My time to Craft - Floral Frenzy
Whiff of Joy - Floral

Now for some sad news - this is my last week with Stamp Something. I can hardly believe that it is 6 months since I became a member of their DT. I would just like to thank Denise and Erin (and all the girls) for a wonderfukl time. They really are the nicest bunch of people in blog land and if you ever get the chance to work with Denise or Erin then grab it - you will not regret it!!!! The plus side is that I can now take part in their fab challenges - thanks for having me, it was a blast :o)


Friday again which means a new challenge on Just Magnolia and eek it is a real challenge for me .......


This is the first time I have used core-dinations papers and I really like the effect from the sanding. I have used the fab sketch by my good mate Dawny over at Papertake Weekly ... wow no flowers from me!! This card also ties in with
Simon Says Stamp - Distressing
Scrappy Frogs - A Magnolia stamp (hmm that was an easy one, lol)

A closer look at the effect of the swiss dots folder on the paper and sweet little Edwin (he is always in the shadow of adorable Tilda ... bless). The gorgeous paper in the background is another beauty off the Bearly Mine Designs CDs by Donna.
Pop over to drool over the DT's creations .... stunning as always!
