Many Magnolia's

I used Edwins boots, and the star from his jumper, to incorporate it into the other Edwin, his mix and match name; Edtwin!

I am amazed how many unique and different designs can be produced from the same style of stamp! Namely the gorgeous Magnolia's. Here are a couple of recent cards, including on for there latest intriguing challenge- to mix and match existing Magnolias to produce a slightly different outcomI have just noticed this card ties in nicely with DCM's midweek challenge os pastels! Bonus!
And this is a commission for a baptismal card for a 13year old girl.

Pin & Party

The latest DCM challenge is to use pins or needles, I was going to pin a tag or charm to the lace but decided to go for something a bit different and pierced it through the prima instead!

I used my new papermania papers- (sorry I did think they were dovecraft sorry for misleading anyone before!) The lace is from local cheap shop! with self adhesive backing, inked with distressed inks to blend the colour. Primas, stick on pearls and safety pin from Lakeland, handmade with love charm, local haberdashery. ribbon from stash

Here is a snapshot also of another succesful card party, this was only a few of the cards, had over 200 to sell! Not many people turned up but it was worth my while in sales.
