Ribbon Girls June Magnolia Challenge and RE-POST!!

Good Morning
Im back again with the same card.
 I feel such a wally!!! I was a week early for the Ribbon Girl Challenge!! Can you believe it (embarrassed face!!!)

Anyway its time for the June Magnolia challenge over at the Ribbon Girls Blog and this week its add a die cut.

I went a little die crazy with my DooHickeys as I was itching to use my new papers 'Tailgate Marked' from  Riddersholm. I just love the colours of these papers. So grungy but still so pretty.
The main flower I made using DooHickey Peony Die
also the DooHickey Butterfly.
and  DooHickey Rose Leaf and Scalloped Tag.
from the Ribbon Girls Shop I used Beaded Berries Ivory /Cream, Cheesecloth, Starburst Stamen White, Cherry Blossom White, Chrysanth Ivory Kort & Godt, Ivory 10mm Open Roses, 12mm Donna Ivory Fine Cotton Lace and Ivory Beaded Trim.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Lets Hang Out

Hi Again
Well last night I finally had a little only me painty time :D
and thats all I wanted to do..

Last week I took a visit to my local craft store to see if there was anything a little different that caught my eye and in their sale area was this embossing folder..

Perfect! just what I needed to reignite my creative juices!

 sometimes you just feel less is more :D
Love this little cutie Tilda With Maggie the Monkey from Sir Stampalot

I Do

There's a new Colour Challenge over at the Ribbon Girls Challenge Blog today which is Ivory.
The timing was perfect for me as I had been commissioned to do a Wedding card this month. Not something I take on often, but I hate to say no!
I always feel under pressure when its a special card for someone else!!!
Anyway here it is and I really hope its what they wanted.  As usual I was scrambling around for letters..Why do you always run out of 'A's and 'S's. Arghhh panic stations or what!
Saying that I loved colouring these two :D 
Papers I used were Riddersholm Huntington Garden
These papers are so beautiful to work with..... trust me you wont be disappointed. The thickness and quality are second to none. Really worth every penny :D
They are definitely top of my fave list of papers. They arent stocked in the UK but if you like the look of them they are available HERE...trust me you will LOVE them and they are so very unique.

and  Im LOVING the new Magnolia DooHickeys Vintage Square..soooo elegant.
Can you believe this Tilda and Edwin are 4 years old now. They are from the Wedding Collection 2010

From the Ribbon Girls Ive used Diamante Heart Charm, Wedding Ring Charm, Prima Resins Angels 3, Ivory Seam Binding, Amanda Ivory Scallop Flat Lace, Lily Flowers small, 10mm Cream Open Rose, 20mm Cream Open Rose and 5mm Ivory Pearl Bead String
