Just Magnolia - Embossing

Hi, how are you all .... glad it is almost the weekend if you are like me .... phew I am exhausted this week! We have a great challenge for you this week to play along with ...


I have used one of my new stamps from the fall kit, I swear Tilda gets cuter with each new release! A very simple card from me today - no papers, OMG!!!!!! The gorgeous embossed card is too pretty to cover up, this is another beauty that Tracy from Dies to die For sent me.

I have embossed the main image with me labels nesties using 2 different sizes - I first saw this done on a card by the ever so sweet Kim and just loved the effect .... so pretty.
The colours I have picked also tie in with this weeks colours on Roses on Paper which are lavender, soft blue and cream.
Just a little note to pass on my thoughts to all of you who were affected by the terrible events of 9-11, my heart goes out to you all and I just want you to know I will be thinking of you on this sad day.
I hope you have a lovely day - we are all heading off to Birmingham after work because Ryan is competeing in the British Open tomorrow .... keep your fingers crossed :o)

Hi Marcea. A stunning card as usual. I love the blues, your little girl is just adorable.
Good luck to Ryan and I second your comments on the date today. It effected our family in that someone was caught up in it but thankfully came home safely but the aftermath was huge and the day never goes by without being forgotten.
Our thoughts are with everyone too.
