Just Magnolia Challenge

What another lovely day... How much longer can this lovely weather last for!! Well eventually got round to finishing a card I started at Sir Stampalot with Louise whilst she was doing a demo for copics. Then found a great challenge to enter it for at Just Magnolia a lovely sketch by Bev.

I have used the following to creat this card: Tilda with bunch of Lilacs, My Minds Eye Swirl, The Greeting Farm Sentiment - Butterfly Wishes, My Minds Eye  papers, Woodware flower punches and finally a Tim Holtz mini Paper Clip.

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts Nicky xx

I borrowed this lovely stamp from my crafting buddy Fleur and thought it would make a lovely Anniversary Card. Was just a quick (15min) put together for a family anniversary card so not really added much to it. If I had a little more time would have added more little bits of detail. (sentiment etc...)

Whiff of Joy - Heart Swirl
Other Bits:
Nesties - Labels 3
Friskar - Oval
Papers- My Minds Eye
Wtercolour Pencils to Colour image

Happy crafting Nicky xx

A Friends Birthday

So I have recycled some garden thread from my husbands greenhouse and a button from an old shirt.
