Magnolia Card
This is a card I made for no reason other than I wanted to use some of my new MME papers and Martha Stewart Hydrangea punches. The papers are fab, I love the colours and I found this Tilda in my box (it has never been used!).
We went over to Once Upon A Stamp yesterday to see them demoing the new Just Rite Nestie stamps, they looked really good and I am looking forward to seeing the Xmas ones which will be available for pre order from their website soon. They also have all of the new release Nesties in stock so I just had to get a couple!!
Have a good Monday.Supplies

Cute Card Thursday 'Lazy Dayz' Challenge - Surf Tilda Suitcase Card
This weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday is Lazy Dayz. I have used some of the new stamps from the Lazy Summer Days collection by Magnolia, I love these stamps and they are such fun to colour in. I thought they were perfect for a suitcase style card and I have added an insert and stand to the card. I have an idea for a male version of this card using some older Magnolia stamps and hopefully I will get time to make 1 next week! I am still having trouble taking photos, I think it is time to start saving for a new camera!
Have a good Thursday!Supplies

Magnolia Down Under 'Father's Day' Challenge
This weeks challenge at Magnolia Down Under is to make a father's day card. I have cheated a bit as we had father's day in the UK in June so I made a card which I used for my hubby's birthday. I have used Tyrolean Edwin again - I love this stamp and some Basic Grey papers and I have added Liquid Applique to make the beer 'frothy'.
We had a great week in Wales and the weather wasn't too bad at all, we managed 3 days on the beach and I even had a swim in the sea!! I am hoping for some more good weather so I can get through the mountain of washing!Supplies
