Happy Retirement......


Good morning!

Woah! It's ages since I last posted!! I've had a serious mojo crisis this week so I decided to leave the crafty stash well alone and do something else for a change! Then I was asked to make a retirement card mid way through the week.......EEEEEKKKK! Nothing worse than a commission when you're not feeling creative!


So I had a long think about which image would work and was relieved when this sweet Magnolia watering can came to mind.... phew! And when I'd chosen the gorgeous Webster's Pages paper the whole card came together with a bit of a bird theme.... spot another of my little nests with eggs in, lol! I used my beloved DooHickey fence die as it works with just about everything!!

I'm entering the following challenges:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Use Dies

Magnolia Down Under - Two of Anything (patterned papers)

Charisma - To Die For


Thanks so much for looking and have an amazing weekend!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
