Just Magnolia week 2


Hello,
Sorry I haven't been posting too much this week. But, with the imminent arrival of my Granddaughter and me being my daughters birthing partner I have had so much to prepare. Seeing midwife, having to get everything in readiness for the home birth. So, my posting might be a bit erratic in the next week or so. 
I can't tell you how thrilled we all are at Just Magnolia for the wonderful support we received from all of you and your amazing creations! Wow, you are so talented I have so loved visiting you and being blown away by your fantastic, beautiful cards. For this week the challenge is to make a card using the colours Pink and Green and using a Magnolia image on your card. I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have distressed my papers with tattered rose and the small flowers with worn lipstick. 
Thank you so much for looking and can I say a huge thank you to everyone who has left me a comment. I love each and everyone of you for your kindness and support of me they really keep me going.
Do go and check out the rest of the Design Team's work it is just amazing!
love
