Just a note.

Hey there -

I've been such a bad blogger this month, too much work, birthdays, appointments, parent's evenings and careers evening, GSCE exams for my eldest, so this month has been taken over by prior engagements.

On a happier note, I'm off on my jollies for a week on Tuesday - so hopefully will be back in full swing after that.  You all have wonderful blogs, that I know I will miss them whilst away, but look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations later.

I hope you all have been enjoying this wonderful weather - but keep safe, use sunscreen.

CU soon,

Magnolia Fairy.

Hello there,

I really hope you enjoyed your Bank Holiday - yesterday ours was spent being a little nostalgic as our there was a vintage bus gathering on the promenade - it brought back memories of how the buses used to be with a conductor and when you hopped on the back (even if it was moving!)  Hubby took Emma for a jaunty on one which she absolutely loved - It really seems unreal that she is 5 and has never been on a bus!
Today we had an outing to Wray as there was a scarecrow festival on.  The theme was the Olympics and the Diamond Jubilee. So many fabulous creations made by young and old.  Quite a few tongue in cheek quips added to some.  Did you know the hulk and 007 were in their 50th year, Titanic was 100 years and Pendle witches 400 years.

Anyway onto my card which I made today....
I had a play with my new Marianne Design die - I love the way you could play around so much with this die.   I also haven't used many flowers for ages so brought them out.  I also used some mirri board which I also haven't used for such a long time, but thought it give a really lovely rainbow colouring peeking through the fret work.  I used my promarkers and distressed inks.  Flowers from WOC.
