Just Magnolia Challenge - Thank You......


Hiya peeps!

Firstly I just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all the lovely comments you take time out to leave and for those of you who stop by my blog for a peek at what I'm up to. Things are a bit stressful for me just now both at work and at home, which is making regular blogging more difficult and so I can't always get round to commenting on your wonderful creations. It's nothing that won't get sorted in time but I just thought I'd explain as I hate being behind with stuff on here. Making cards is my therapy though so I expect you'll still see plenty of things from me!!

I'm entering this Magnolia easel into this week's Just magnolia Challenge which is 'Thank You'........ okay so it might not be totally obvious that this card has anything to do with giving thanks, but I think it fits because I've decided I'm giving this to my mum for Mother's Day and that's all about being thankful, isn't it?

I used a Tilda image from one of last year's releases because I think she's very sweet and pretty..... and I think this is one of my fave colour combos too, pink and green. The papers are Kay&Co and the flowers are Prima. The extra sentiment stamps are all Magnolia and the butterfly is a punch, but I'm not sure who makes it. I had one of the lovely deep Martha Stewart punches for Christmas so that's what I used to create the scalloped panels. Do you like the leaves? Got myself a new Sizzix die and I really like the unusual shape of these..... well you know me and my leaf fetish, lol!!!

Well I'm dashing off to Tesco now to get some bits and bobs for making a curry..... hope to sneak on later for a bloghop and I wish you all a fab weekend!

Take care, TTFN and TFL......

Big hugs , Tara xxx

Chris said...

Such a scrummy card Tara and a very cute Tilda too. Your colouring and once again your gorgeous choice of colours are superb, it looks like a lovely spring garden, bet your Mum loved her card. I agree about the card making therapy, it's the best way to unwind and I don't think any of us can ever keep up with commenting as hard as we try, I know I can't :) as much as I'd like to. Have a good week sweetie, big hugs, Chris xx
