Bev has designed a stunning sketch for the Challenge this week on Just Magnolia Challenge , thanks Bev it was a great sketch to work with.  As usual our fantastic DT have created the most stunning cards for you so please pop over and come and join us.


This is one of last years Magnolia Easter Stamps that has lain forgotten in my Magnolia Box, now she is back on the top and will be used time and again for spring cards. 

Distress Inks Used are: Tattered Rose, Tea ye and Worn Lipstick for Face and Hands, Black Soot and Brushed Corduroy for her hair, Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet for Clothes and Black Soot for Lamb.

009The papers are from Basic Greys New 6” x 6” pads, I know Nikki from Bunny Zoes Crafts sold out of them very quickly but she has now got them back in stock so be quick!!!!   The Lace and Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts 


Wags-n-Whiskers have come up with a fabulous theme this week to make Handmade flowers for  your card.   The only rule for joining our challenge is you Must use a Wags ‘n Whiskers Image on your card.


Love this “Snuzzle Love” image perfect for that special Little Girl.  She has been coloured with Distress Inks, the papers are from my scrap drawer, Ribbon is from Crafty Feelings.  I have used a punch for the swirls.

006I have had the instructions for this flower in my head for ages and cannot remember where I found them, but it is very easy to make, just cut 6 small scalloped circles with nesties, layer them up and add a brad to the middle scrunch each circle up to the middle then open up and you have this great flower.


Finally if you have time please pop over to Whiff of Joy  Tutorial and Inspiration blog where it is my turn to show you how to make a Little Easter Basket that will take you about 5 minutes to make.

013Have a Good Day
