Appreciative.....


Good morning peeps!

This is a quick post a I'm dashing off to work as usual.... you know, cup of tea in one hand and mascara wand in the other, lol! Here is my card for the current Just Magnolia Challenge where the lovely Mina has provided us with a perfect sketch to follow..... I flipped it for my card ;o) I took inspiration from the uber talented guest Mindy who is being featured this week.... she added a punched border to the very edge of her card and I thought it looked so pretty I decided to do the same!

I used papers once again from the new Papermania Henbury Lane range and added one of the sweet felt butterflies they have released too, which I fastened to the back of the Tilda image. The flowers are Papirloftet and the pearls and ribbon are from my stash. Do you spot the sweet little butterfly? I picked that up recently at Hobbycrafts, isn't it totally adorable?

Well enjoy your day friends..... the office awaits me so I really must fly!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
