One For The Boys

Hope you are all well on this gorgeous Sunday Morning.
I cant believe it is nearly a week since my last post! Where does time go.
Ive just dropped my daughter off for her last day of work for the summer over at the Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream Parlour. Such a fabulous place. My hubby will miss his ice cream he sneaks in when he picks her up!
Today is a new Magnolia challenge over at the Ribbon Girls Blog and its One for the Boys!
Ive used two new stamps from the New Magnolia Winter Collection (Don't know their names yet).
From the Ribbon Girls I used Cheesecloth, Dark Carafe Seam Binding Vintage style, Rusty Jingly Bells, Chocolate Brown Button Twine, Organza Pearl White looped trim and Red Berries.
Dies used are DooHickey Slender Firs and Snowy Forest.

Keep Calm And Soldier On


Happy Monday
Hope you are all ok
Well what a hectic weekkend :D
Yes...... MAGNOLIA have been at the Alexandra Palace Scrap show Event in London.
Ive had a fabulous time and met the most wonderful people.
Here is one of the cards I made for them using the new Little London Collection stamps.
Aren't they just gorgeous.
For my card I used Edwin In a Bearskin Hat painted with Distress Re-Inkers.
I was very surprised at how many people didn't know you could paint with them.
Ive been asking Magnolia for a couple of years now for a Tilda or Edwin in a Bearskin Hat and Yayyy he's here and what a cutie he his. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE
They only landed at my house Wednesday giving me one day to paint a couple ready to send down for the weekend.
Thankfully I had some London themed papers from the Jubilee and the Royal Wedding. So sorry I cant remember what they are.
Edwin is painted with Distress Reinkers
Dies used are DooHickeys  Castle ,Tag and Box Coffee Lace
Sizzix Weathered Clock
I be back soon with another of the cards from the weekend and some pictures.
Byeee for now

A Touch Of Velvet

Its Heartsthis week over at MDUC chosen by my very gorgeous friend Camilla.
Such a perfect choice for me as I think you've already gathered I just love
 Ive got to say I LOVED making this card. Its a picture Ive had in my head for a few weeks now. As soon as I saw Violet Tilda I knew she belonged in the Romantic Window hence the Hearts
 Again I wanted a Sepia Vintage effect with a 'Touch Of Velvet' .....Victorian velvet! hee hee
 The whole image is painted with Distress Inks Walnut Stain for an OLD look and a touch of Victorian Velvet which I have then painted over with Distress Crackle Glaze.
Ive added a little Frantage to the Flowers
 The butterfly on the frame and the clay corner I have made with Airdry clay. Have you noticed the heartsin the lace too?
For the shape of the card Ive used Go Kreate Dies
 My tag is made with a Magnolia Doohickey Die 'Cloudy Tags' and also the Butterfly is Magnolia.
Papers are also Magnolia.
Byeeee for now
