New Job.


Hi again, Here is another one I really enjoyed making.  I haven't inked up a Magnolia image for a while nor used flowers.  I've tried to combine someone leaving and going to a new job ... what do you think?
The only thing with adding depth to a card is now the postage - and most I know a friend near me make flatter cards because of it.  I do feel that they do look prettier with the extra embelishements on though.

Flowers from WO, the image has been paper pieced, lace and other embellies from stash.

Challenges:-
Bunny Zoe - Girls Girls Girls.
Cute Card Thursday - punch drunk
Crafts and Me - pearls and roses.
I love Promarkers - tutti fruity.
Simon Says - photo inspiration
Allsorts Challenge - paper piecing and piercing.
Magnolia Downunder - bingo (sentiment on banner, Tilda and lace)
Totally Tilda- Tilda with Bunting / Pennant.

(gosh, must be a record!~)

Hugs

Walking the plank

Hi there,
What a weekend I had, I think the kids had ALL been on trill bird food or something, they never were quite for one moment, question after question, request after request and I had a disaster - I knocked over a cup of tea all over a batch of cards I had made - not at all happy!  I have put it down to having one of those days weekends!  Anyway glad to get back to work for a bit of piece and quiet!

Here is a card that managed to miss all the commotion...
One of my latest stamps from LOTV - I thought I'd be very British in my colours since I was on holiday when all the Jubilee Celebrations were on - (told you I am always behind on everything!)

Challenges:-

Creative Inspiration - Trooping the Colour (red, white and blue).
Papertake Weekly - 3 - 2 - 1 (3 papers, 2 stamped images, 1 star)
Passion for Promarkers - Lots of layers

Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs

Two for one!

Hi there,
Oh my goodness my mojo seemed to have taken a longer holiday than I had.  I sat at my desk today and just couldn't create anything - I was shocked that I wasn't up to it, my little haven, my little me time and I couldn't do a thing.  I decided to take M out for a bike ride (we both topped up our tan with the beautiful sunshine) and when we came back managed to get these two cards done - mainly because I needed to send them out tomorrow!

I have really fallen in love with these sassy images - Krista Smith is so talented.  M thinks that they look so much like her moxi dolls, so I am a cool mom at the moment.

This image was a freeby which I am so grateful for - need to start saving up again after the hols.

Challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes.
I love Promarkers - something for a girl.
Saturated Canary - Anything goes.

Card below.
Lili's Little Fairies - one for the boys.
Creative Inpiration - Card for a male.


This next card is for my dad for fathers day.  As he lives abroad, I have to get in the post asap.  It also helped having few embellishments especially with the postage as it is.  I am starting to like animal stamps just that little bit more - a change is as good as a rest.  Just finished looking through all the blogs I have missed whilst away - so many talented ladies out there.   Well that's it for me as got to get sorted and back to work tomorrow for a full week - take care and see you soon. 
Hugs,
