Think Pink!

 Happy Sunday afternoon. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
Over on the Just Magnolia Challenge this week they are promoting  Breast Awareness Month and your work has to be PINK!

I thought I'd have a go at an Easel Card, something I haven't done for ages! The pink Poinsettias are from a Marianne D Die and the white Snowflakes bits are from the grass WOJ die.
Of course I had to include the Breast Cancer Symbol.
This is it folded flat perfect fit for the envelope.

All Aboard!!

Evening everyone!
                       Hope you are all having a fabby weekend.
It's my week for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week the challenge is ALL Aboard!!! Perfect for us here in the UK as it is Half-Term and I know loads that are boarding the planes to warmer climates. Sadly we aren't!! :(  lol!!  Ive a week of decorating(and crafting!!)hee hee

I loved doing this card as I'm loving painting with distress inks. I keep pushing myself further each time, adding the darker colours in the background and shadowing etc. It's so addictive.
          All stamps used were Magnolia except  the postcard stamp which is 'Great Aunt's Correspondence' from The Stampman and was great for this.
      Thankyou all for looking and have a great weekend.
Back soon.
love Debbie xx

Santa Edwin

At last my Magnolia stamps have arrived and I couldn't wait to get started on Santa Edwin.!! He's my first ever Edwin stamp!!
I thought I would be a little more daring and watercolour the background too. I was so scared of spoiling it, I must admit, after a spending a couple of hours painting him!!
I got there in the end!!(I think)

A Christmas Gift

Good Morning- I love these mornings when the kids leave for school at 7.30am!!lol It gives me chance to do these sort of jobs I have to fit in when I can!!
       I keep seeing these gorgeous candle gift cards around blogland and they are slightly easier to make from the Candle Gift Book I made in a previous post. The instructions are HERE.
    Ive done this one a little different and made it into a opening card.
The papers Ive used are Basic Grey 'Jovial', Tilda is 'Vintage Tilda with Roses' and the fabby new Nestie Labels 16!!!( I do wish they would stop bringing new ones out!!!!!lol)
Ive sprayed the whole card with Mica spray, but the pictures don't show the sparkle that well
 and the Poinsettias are covered with 'Diamond Dust Twinklets', which add that extra sparkle.
The Magnolia song stamp inside definately had my name on it!!! I think I was the biggest Wham Groupie out there!!! (I'm showing my age now!!!LOL)
Also sprayed with Mica Spray
Also just to add that Christmas feeling, the tealights inside smell of Apple and Cinnamon Spice!
Challenges I'm entering are

Just Magnolia 2 x 2 (This is a great Challenge if you suffer from OCD like me!!!LOL)

Thanks for looking.

A Gift from the Heart xx

Back Again!!!
Hi Everyone- Well its Challenge time for me again!!
   Im absolutely addicted to painting with my distress inks. I haven't had much motivation this week in putting the cards together, so Ive just painted about 4 different images, so hopefully cards will follow soon.
    Anyway I did manage to finish this card last night! I love this Tilda 'Blowing Bubbles' as she is so versitile and can be used all year round.
Ive painted her dress with Victorian Velvet, Hair Vintage photo and Tea Dye and skin Tattered Rose.
I dont think the photos show how sparkly she is, but she has sparkle on her wings and a light spray of mica Powder.

Have a great weekend and thankyou for looking
