Good morning everyone! Today I'm showing you my entry to the Magnolia Down Under Challenge which, this fortnight, is 'distressing'. And at the same time I'm showing Edwin some love!!! Don't we neglect the poor fella?! He really is so cute and does not deserve to sit in the drawer, all alone in the darkness ;o( And doesn't he look just scrummy in that wetsuit..... watch out Tilda, I think you'll be in for a bit of competition from those Gorjuss girls or maybe Miss Anya if you're not careful, ROFL!! The DT girls have mostly created easel cards for the challenge this week too, so I decided to incorporate that into my design...... I, like many other peeps, am loving this shape and I think it's definitely here to stay. The only thing I thought might be a bit strange with my card is that it's very Summery and we're well into Autumn and Winter cards now - then I remembered that over in Australia the weather is lovely this time of year (think barbeque on the beach on Christmas day!) amd so, as this is the Magnolia Down Under Challenge, I think my card will pass nicely, YAY!! I've used Basic Grey Lime Rickey papers (another set I've been struggling with) and Prima Hydrangea flowers. The waves are a Bazzill Just The Edge strip and the leaves are a Sizzix die. Edwin has been coloured with Poly and Koh pencils and I added a little Stickles to his surf board.
I'm off to work now.... late start because the kids are coming in with me today and I didn't want to get them up too early as it's their half term break!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
