Just Magnolia # 5 - A Sketch























Good afternoon everyone!

Hope you are all well and have enjoyed your weekend. The rain doesn't seem to have left us just yet does it, so we'll just have to imagine those hot, sunny days a bit longer!

Well thanks to all of you who wished me good luck with my housework yesterday....... you kind lot!!! I did get it all done and the house managed to stay spic and span for all of about half an hour, when the hubster came home from work and my son returned from playing at a friend's house. Bless 'em!! Anyway, I did managed to fit in some crafting time, in fact I managed to make three cards!!! Must be a record for me in one day!

I'm showing you the first one I made which I'm entering into the Just Magnolia Challenge. This week there is a brilliant sketch provided by Naoual, which was great fun to work with. I had a rummage through my stash of image and came up with this delectable Cross Stitch Tilda, she really is a cutie!

Well, as always during the week, I'm at work and shouldn't be blogging, so I'll love ya and leave ya for now!

Sentiment - from stash
Papers - Papermania Signature Blueberry Hill
Colouring - Polychromos
Embossing - Cuttlebug Panel
Flowers - Prima Hydrangeas
Embellishments - Leaves, Roses, Floral Beads and Sticky Lace from stash
