Made with Love for Just Magnolia!

Afternoon all. Another post from me {that's 3 days in a row now, don't faint in shock!} Lol! Well I had to really as I have this card to show you that I want to enter into the Just Magnolia challenge of handmade flowers and it ends at midnight tonight!!

I made this card just before I went on holiday 'just because' and as would luck would have it, it meets with this weeks JM challenge, so as you can imagine I was very happy! I couldn't wait to ink up my Magnolia Fall kit when it arrived and this was the first stamp I went for. She is adorable. I thought her pinafore was perfect for paper piecing! I love this technique and for those eagle eyed of you it's the second card this week I've shown with this technique!


Image: Tilda with spoon from Magnolia fall kit 2009

CS: DCWV Christmas stack

Sentiment: Magnolia Fall Kit 2009

Tools: distress inks, sponge,

Misc: Ginham ribbon, Pearl brads and Spacers all from stash, flowers
made from DCWV papers

I am almost feeling back to normal now, the cough still won't budge though! Whilst I have felt pretty dreadful most of the time, when I have felt up to it I have been able to catch up on my blog hopping and be inspired by all the beautiful creations out there. Which has had the added bonus of me recapturing my mojo! Yay!

Well my OH is out mowing the back lawn for what he hopes will be the last time this year, so I feel this is my opportunity to head off to my craft rom for a few hours {if I'm lucky}!

Thanks for stopping by today, I really value your support and inspiring comments!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
