A couple of challenges...

Hello again! Well what a busy bee I have been... Done a workshop with a friend of mine and she made some lovely birthday cards and a new baby card she was really proud of herself and rightly so really pretty cards - should have taken piccies of her cards too! After she had gone home I decided to do two challenges - the first one the Just Magnolia challenge and the second the SWU challenge

The Just Magnolia challenge was this week stitching - luckily for me this could be faux stitching as well as the traditional kind on a sewing machine - something I don't have... I have water coloured an image from my stash that a friend had stamped me ages ago. I then mounted this on SU cardstock and have stitched the edges. In both pink glitter pen and black fibre tip pen. I used the petals wheel in pink passion across the top of the card and edged this with shocking forever friends ribbon to decorate. The setiment is again stamped in pink passion and mounted on SU card stock - again stitched around the edge.

The SWU! this week is THANKS, for the challenge I again used a Magnolia stamp - from my friend (check out her blog Sams Bits) which I water coloured using my pencil crayons, I then mounted this on SU cardstock and daubed the edges with lovely lavender ink. I used the petals wheel on the card to create a border in lavender lace and ribbon to decorate the bow I stuck down with double sided and I created a double layer. The Sentiment is from Fun and Fast Notes and I mounted this on SU cardstock. I daubed the edges of this and the card as well. I used three brads to decorate from my stash...
