Summer Days Magnolia DT card...


I have made a card today with a new image sent to me in my Magnolia Summer Lazy Days DT kit. She is just so adorable I really loved inking her up and colouring her. I used distress inks and added stickles to the flowers. I have distressed the background with broken china. The flowers are sprayed with glimmer mist. I have quickutzed the leaves.

I would like to say a very big thank you to these fabulous sweet girls for sending me these awards. I am so thrilled that you have thought of me big hugs to you.

This is from Alina, Annacarin.

I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits my blog you are so very lovely and I treasure all of your comments so much thank you!

Before I go. An update on my Saturday baby sitting 10 week baby Isabella. Poor baby was not happy at all, couldn't put her down at all, crying, then sick all over me. We didn't realise she had swine flu. Poor Claire has been out of her mind with worry trying to get the temperature down. Just as she was on the cusp of going to hospital it broke and I am so very happy to report she is on the mend now.

Thank you so much for looking.

OMG, poor baby Isabella!! You must have all been so worried. I'm so glad she's on the mend now. I don't know anyone personally who's had it but there aren't many cases here. There is talk of delaying the start of the school year though, as they are worried about all the kids in school.

I love your card, very summery. The DT kit has some REALLY pretty stamps!!

What a relief Isabella is ok now. You won't forget your 1st time babysitting her in a hurry.

I have 2 little granddaughters under 2 (eldest called Isabella too) and I'm so concerned for them.

This is a beautiful delicate card. What a sweet image and so wonderfully coloured. I love the way you arrange flowers on your cards too.
