Mothers Day and Dragons Greetings


This week on Magnolia vs Stampavie we are asking you to make something for Mothers Day, can be a card or a present anything as long as it is for Mothers Day. You can check out the rules for the challenge and see the Fabulous cards by My fellow DT girls by clicking
Here



I am just going to start Sunday Lunch as I have my son and family coming over today, so this is another quick post I am afraid. I know I am always moaning about not liking my cards but this one I really don't like very much not sure why just not happy about it at all. My Mojo seems to have gone and I really have no enthusiasm for card making again, he seems to be doing this a lot lately, wonder if I am over working him, anyway if you see him send him back please.



I have used two of the Spring Collection Magnolias on this card The Signpost and of Course Tilda with her basket of flowers, they have been coloured with Copics and mounted onto Pink and Green Base card. I have added extra grass on the bottom of the signpost and just added the grass with a black pen. The papers are from Basic Grey, flowers, spacers, brads and Charm from stash. The sentiment is computer generated and I have distressed the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and layered it on top of a net bow which dosn't actually show on the Photo. The Butterfly is another stamp from the spring collection.



I have carried the papers onto the inside and added a couple more of the butterflies I am not sure where the Gold Butterfly came from. Copics I have used are below






The super talented Trak has added downloads to her e-bay shop now she has this fabulous Blue Dragon, a Pink Dragon and an Easter Bunnie to download at the moment. They print out perfectly as you can see from this card. I printed the dragon on to textured card to give him a feeling of scales. I just adore him, I hope you do.


The papers are from my Fav CD again and I have used a MSBP for the Border on the blue base card. This is actually an 8 x 8 card which I very rarely make, but I am really pleased with this one. The brads, flowers, lace and Charm are from my stash


There are two dragons on the download, I though I would show you both, the little sitting dragon is actually for a gift box I am going to make for the Baby. If you would like to check out these downloads just click Here to go to Traks blog.



Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
