Just Magnolia challenge

Hi, hope you are having a good day. It's very warm here but unfortunately not the lovely sunshine they've got at Wimbledon. Never mind I've had quite a good day so far. The grandchildren stayed over last night so had them to sort out first thing, but they behaved and Jessica even managed to make a couple of cards before school. Now's that's keen! Anyway when they'd gone, did a bit of the dreaded housework and then John and myself went out for lunch at the local garden centre. It's a lovely garden centre but to be honest I think the cafe does the most trade as it's very good value for money. You should see the cake counter, yum yum. I did not secumb however, oh OK I did buy sweeties from the old fashioned sweet shop in there but they were medicinal, mints. Since we got back home I've been crafting in my very untidy craft room (that's Jessica for ya!) so I think before I do any more I'm gonna have to have a tidy up.

Right then, this is my creation for this weeks challenge over at Just Magnolia. If you haven't checked this blog out may I suggest you take a look 'cause the DT cards are wonderful and great inspiration.


  • Card base Bazzil Bling

  • Paper Tutti Frutti by Crafts House

  • Image Tilda coloured with Cosmic shimmers and whispers

  • Nesties

  • White border by Craftwork Cards shaded with Worn Lipstick Distress ink layered onto a lace adhesive border.

  • Sentiment Craftwork Cards

  • Ribbon, flowers and gems from stash.

Not entirely happy with this but it's done so decided to go with it anyway.

Thanks for visiting,

Have fun

Hugs Pat xx

  3. Hi Pat
    Lovely card as always. Left a message for jessica suggesting she try a challenge. If she had a go at tuesday taggers, we have ome challenges coming up that she could easily do and with entry numbers being low still she'd be in with a good chance of winning! Love to encourage new crafter!
