Good morning....... it's been a while!

I've been making the most of our wonderful Spring weather and getting out and about, so there hasn't been much crafty time lately!!

Anyway, I did find time to make this card last night using new Magnolia stamps.... isn't the dog a cutie?!!

I masked Tilda and the dog with a Spring fence which I doubled up to make it longer. I do love that you can create a nice scene when you mask several images together. I coloured everything with Polys and added some Stickles for sparkle. I recently bought the Prima Botanicals paper pad and I love it..... very shabby chic and vintagey so you might be seeing it some more ;o)

Now you know how I love my handmade roses..... well I spotted Marianne Creatables had bought out some new dies to make them so the leaves and roses on this card have been made using one of them. They're so much fun to make and so easy!! Easy is good right?

I'm entering the following challenges:

Flutterby Wednesday - Open

Simon Says - Easter/Spring Colours

Crafts and Me - Glitter and Anything Goes

Not only is the dog a cutie but your entire card is precious. I love this Tilda image and how you added a scene. Did you add paint to the edges of your flower and leaves? Thank you for joining us this week at Craft Your Passion for our "Two by Two" challenge. Hope to see you again on Monday for our next challenge. Barb GDT.
