Just buzzing by ........


Good Morning. Well I hope you are all well. I have had another asthma attack, so back on the roids. I am feeling much stronger now thank goodness. I am so happy that we are now into Spring get rid of these horrible bugs going around.

I have made this card using my newly purchased little adorable Magnolia Tilda. I love her and so enjoyed colouring all of her sweetness!

I have stamped her onto 300 gsm waterford watercolour paper. Using versafine black onyx ink. I have coloured her with distress inks. The stickles are star dust and silver ice. The flowers are ek success punched. The punched border is fiskars.

I have received this award from a most talented and sweet girl Solveig.

Thank you so much Solveig I am so thrilled to receive this from you.

Well, thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a wonderful day. I am so looking forward to going to the NEC on Saturday. I hope I will be stronger enough by then and I will be going with my two wonderful friends Chris and Tab. I am so hoping to meet other gorgeous bloggers too so exciting and of course a visit to the Magnolia stand ah bliss!
