Sending Hugs.......

Hello,

I hope you are well and for anyone like me who is in the middle of a heat wave hope you are keeping cool! Boy is it hot, hot, hot! 

Not that the weather was remotely like that on our weeks holiday in Cornwall, which we have just returned from.  Rain, rain, rain, but I still feel refreshed and had a lovely break :)

Today I would like to share with you a card I made using Tilda with Ponytail from Magnolia's Sweet Rainbow Collection.


I have coloured Tilda with distress ink pads and cut her out and 3d her onto Magnolia's Recipe Card image. Which I heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I stamped and cut out the ribbon label twice and stuck this on top and added star dust stickle glue.


I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside left. I have used a Magnolia Doohickey die for the swirl and Quickutz leaf die. The flowers are Prima.


Here is the inside right. I have used Nestie dies for the circles. The corners are stamped with Stempelglede borders.


The word hugs and tiny flowers are Quickutz I have distressed these and everything else on the card with Walnut Stain. The seam binding has been distressed with Weathered Wood and I have added some muslin behind my image.

I will be adding this to my Ebay later today if anyone is interested.

Before I go I want to introduce you to a new member of our family.

Please meet Hettie.


Hettie is 9 weeks tomorrow so going for her first immunisation tomorrow :( I have never owned a kitten before so it is a complete learning curve for me and I love her.

Also, for everyone who is kind enough to ask about my Grandson Luca. He is recovering from his 15th operation yesterday. All went well. He is so completely amazing. He just walks down to theatre and has a chat with the anaesthetist while they are inserting the injection (hand drink) for Luca to be put to sleep. They have never known a child that can do that bless his little heart



Thank you so much for visiting with me and don't forget there is a new challenge for you to join in with at TOMIC please do go and visit and see what the amazing dt have made for you.

Take care.

love

Hello,

Today is the start of another challenge over at TOMIC. The theme this week is Summer.

I have decorated the inside too. I have sprayed my whole card lightly with glimmer mist marshmallow. The stickles I have added are platinum and star dust.

The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge - Birthday.........

Hello,

We the Magnolia Design Team are today very excited, as today is the first day of our very first challenge TOMIC!

We are celebrating a very special birthday. Our very own Magnolia Mummy Pauline's.  Who designs all that is sweet and gorgeous at Magnolia. So, we thought what a great way for our challenge to start off is to have the theme Birthday. 

Here is my card that has been sent to Pauline in Sweden.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. The background has been distressed with pumice stone and the edge of this and all my papers have been edged with walnut stain.


I have decorated the inside too.


Here is the inside left. I have used Magnolia's Doohickey dies for the Tag, Butterfly and Lace border. The small flower is an EK Success punch.


Here is the inside right. The large flower and leaves are also Magnolia Doohickey dies.


I have also added stickle glue star dust and lightly sprayed the whole card with glimmer mist.


Thank you so very much for your visit. It would be so wonderful if you would join us in our new TOMIC challenge. The rest of the Magnolia design team have made the most stunning cards for your inspiration. I look forward to visiting with you and see all your beautiful Birthday creations!

love
