Friday Fun


A bit late posting today, been to hairdressers to have my hair cut, why is going to the hairdressers as traumatic as going to the dentist!!!!

This weeks it is time for our Special Monthly Challenge on Just Magnolia Challenge and the wonderful Dena has created a fabulous tutorial on creating a Tent card I really enjoyed making this card and hope you do to thanks so much Dena. To find the tutorial just click here.

001  I have used Magnolia papers for this one, cannot wait for the new Magnolia Easter papers to be released mine are on pre-order!.  If you are thinking you haven't seen this Tilda before it is actually Broomstick Tilda with the broom cut off.  The Ribbon die down the sides are by Marianne designs and are available from Crafts U Love, Flowers as usual from Wild Orchid Crafts , and those gorgeous pearl effect buttons are from The Hobby House




This week our talented gal Karen is asking you to use create either a tag or bookmark. You may want to combine the tag with a card like some of our designers have done below.
To play our challenges you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp as your main image to be entered into the prize drawing.

If you don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers, then it's time to go shopping!!!.



I decided on a tag for this challenge the image has been coloured with Copics, the papers are from Nitwits latest collection, I am loving the peaches and greens on this release.   I borrowed the idea for the swirls from Jane . Flat Backed Pearls are from The Hobby House.

Have a great weekend
