Magnolia DT Wednesday...


How gorgeous is this weather. I am so glad to see the sunshine! I have made a Magnolia DT card using the soon to be released Magnolia Easter Collection.

I have coloured my Magnolia image with distress ink pads. Everything has been distressed to within an inch of it's life with vintage photo. The background with Tilda on is distressed with mustard seed. I have added oodles of Stardust stickle glue. The delicious paper is the new Magnolia paper release I have got to get loads for me. I have die cut the tulips using Quickutz.

I have been sent these awards by two wonderfully talented sweeties.

This is from the amazing Fern who is only 11!

This is from the gorgeous Lynn

Thank you so very much you are so lovely to pass these onto me and I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits my blog as a thank you for all your support.

Thank you so very much for looking!
