Kiss Me I'm A Prince......

Good morning everyone..... hope you are keeping well today!

I've had a play with the new Magnolia Spring Kit to create my card and even did some masking to produce a scene. Now I must tell you I'm not the most patient crafter and I don't mask multiple images very often because it's time consuming and I like instant results. But I decided these images from the kit just had to be used together so I got stuck in...... and I am delighted with how it work out, I just love this castle window and can imagine it being useful for all sorts of cards!

You might notice that I've been playing with my Webster's Pages..... AGAIN!! Yummy, yummy, yummy, hee hee! I decided to make this card for the latest Simon Says Stamp Challenge because they have a fab theme this week, 'Let's Go To The Movies' with an added extra of dry embossing. Well I very nearly forgot about the dry embossing bit so hurredly added some little butterflies which I embossed with my Swiss Dots folder. For my movie I was going to choose 'The Princess And The Frog' but I figured that would be very popular so in the end I've plumped for 'In Pursuit Of Happiness' starring Will Smith...... love that film! My card doesn't reflect the content of the film, purely the title..... sweet Tilda is looking for the man of her dreams you see, lol!

I also discovered that the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge are asking us to create a theme this week so I'm entering my card there as well. I think they feature all the entries as posts on that blog and it's lovely to see what other people have created, great fun!

Well sorry for the uber long post today, I have waffled a bit I think! Hope you have fun and enjoy that sunshine because it's all set to change on Sunday and I even heard the weatherman mention that 'snow' word again, GROAN!!

Thanks so much for stopping by..... TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
