Just Magnolia week 28 - Martine's sketch...


Oh had a little glitch this morning trying to upload my post. Thank goodness all is well now!

A new challenge starts today at Just Magnolia. We have a fantastic sketch for you to follow by Martine. Thank you so much sweetie this was a dream to follow and I will love to use it again! Please go and see the rest of the DT's cards they are stunning.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress inks. The background is distressed with antique linen and edged with vintage photo. I have also edged all my papers with vintage photo. I have sprayed my flowers with glimmer mist and added some stickle glue to them and some of my image.

I have added liquid pearls around the edge of my nestie shape.


I have been so very lucky to have been sent these awards by two wonderfully talented ladies. Thank you so very much I am just so thrilled that you would think of me.

This is from Marina.

This is from Paula.

Thank you all so much for looking and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who sent me get well wishes. I am now on the road to recovery. Steroids are a wonderful thing! Thank you so much I really appreciated them and they really made me feel so much better!

Have a great weekend.
