Double trouble!!

Evening all! Wow what a scorcer it's been today, I know I shouldn't complain but I have been so warm at work. We don't have a summer uniform so I have still been wearing my tunic and trousers and I have been sweltering. I just hope it stays this nice until friday when my days off start!

Well onto today's card. I am entering this card into two of this weeks challenges. I have followed the sketch over at Just Magnolia which was designed by the fabulous Bev and I have also used the colours over at colour create this week which are Pistachio green, aqua and powder pink!

The image was given to me by a blogging friend some time ago and I coloured her with my whispers. Papers are from the sparkly sweet K& CO pad. CS is coredinations. The scalloped border was created with my SU punch and the sentiment also from SU, available from the fabulous Jules. Flowers are prima and pearl brads from papermania. Apologies for the picture quality and the wonkiness!! I've been working for the past 11 day straight and the lights not so good when I get home {and neither are my photography skills}! LOl!

For all of you who have ordered the magnolia summer kit the news is it's on it's way! Some lucky people have recieved their's aready! Hope mine arrives tomorrow in time for my four days off! Although I can't complain too much I did have a parcel waiting for me from Jules when I got home, some more lovely SU stamps!!

Well sorry for the long winded post. I'd best get off now and get the tea on ready for the OH coming home from work!

Thanks for taking the time to stop on by!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

What a sweet card Vicky , This Tilda looks like she is ready for a little rough & tumble in her dungarees, even dressed as a tom boy you have managed to still make her look a sweetie

No Magnolia for me I'm afraid. Can't get myself to order there, no idea why.
but....hopefully next week I should be able to order Gorjuss set no 3 (YEAH)
