Friday Sketchers / Just Magnolia

>> Saturday, 27 February 2010

The weekend has finally arrived but I think its going to be a soggy one!  We might escape the rain today but the forecast for tomorrow is awful which is typical as my parents are visiting for the day and we like to get out of the house for a walk when the weather is nice.  However, my dad did say he would help lay our new bathroom floor so at least that might get finished!!


My card today is for two of my favourite challenges –Just Magnolia and Friday Sketchers.  This card came together very easily, although I did my usual thing of adding something after most of the pieces had been stuck down!


jmfs2 I’ve coloured this Christmas Tilda with distress inks and added some stardust stickles.  The border stamp is from Ladybug & Friends and my papers are a mixture of Magnolia and Melissa Frances.  I’ve spritzed my Prima and Wild Orchid Craft flowers with pearl Glimmer Mist and added a snipped piece of a Prima ‘Say it with Pearls' swirl.  The sentiment circle is cut with a Quickutz die and the sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio.  The button brads are from Making Memories.  After I’d stuck everything down I decided to add the strip of lace so I had to apply a big dollop of glue under Tilda’s feet to stick her down again!

I hope the sun shines wherever you are this weekend.

It's snowing this morning where I am, I'd much rather have a bit of dry weather for a change. I love your card, it's so pretty and your papers are gorgeous. Beautiful colouring.
Happy crafting
