Hi There again
A new Challenge has just begun at MDUC and we want you to make or alter a Giftbox. I decided to alter one which I have had knocking about for a while in my craftroom.
Still inspired by lasts night opening ceremony of the Olympics I thought I would go with a sporty theme too.

Ive used Gymnastic Tilda With Ribbon from the Winner Takes All Collection 2011. All these stamps are perfect for the Olympics. Ive painted using DI's.
Papers are Papermania which I had left from the Jubilee.

Dies are Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Doo-Hickey So Wrapped Lovely
Sizzix Die-Clock

Have a great weekend

Let The Games Begin

Well...WOW!!! Did you watch the opening ceremony last night to the 2012 Olympic Games??Blooming Brilliant!! :D
For me the best part was The Queen with 007, but Callum And Sophie liked Mr Bean.

Above is a snippet of what I did in the latest Magnolia Ink 'Follow Your Dreams'. For the full picture and my project  and step by step where I transfered onto a canvas bag you will have to buy the copy !
There are also lots of AMAZING sport projects from the DT and some fantastic ideas for the Olympics

Bye for now xxx

Edwin In The Lakes

 Good Morning everyone
Today to share is a Stepper card Ive made for a sample card of gorgeous 'Hiking Edwin' from the NewAutumn Leaves Magnolia Collection.

I used my son Callum for my inspiration.
Last week he did his Silver Duke Of Edinburgh Award in The Lake District for 4 days.
Can you remember the weather!!!! I think he got more than drenched!
We have spent many a Summer Holiday in the lakes, but more gazing up at the hills rather than walking on them from Lake Windermere.
I even pinched a little piece of his map!!hee hee
Though how he carried a 17kg rucksack on his back for 4 days I havent a clue!!!

Stamps used are Hiking Edwin and Hiking Backround all available from Sir Stampalot

Ive coloured with DI's

Dies used are Tim's Sizzix Pine Tree (cut out 6 times!) and On TheEdge Fence
Doo Hickeys Cloud and Memory Box Puffy Clouds
and a few punch out leaves.

Other stamps were Whimsy Postcard and Postage Stamps.
Hope you like it
