My Lovely Supporters

11 Mar 2017


Hi all, I am finally back with you, the move to my new place was more stressful than I had anticipated but the help and support from my son, mum and brother was awesome.  I am still trying to find my feet and my stuff, I have a large storage cupboard which is filled with all craft items I was not aware that I had collected so much, I was quite shocked, so no more spending on craft goodies for me, however much I am tempted, lol. 
Unfortunately I missed the start of the new Magnolia Forever Challenge for March so I am posting my DT card today while I have some time.
The challenge theme is
I have used both of these items on my card plus die cuts, flowers and butterflies, I used my Tilda with Daisy stamp, first I stamped the whole image onto the oval then stamped her again, coloured her and cut her out so i could create the 3d effect, I stamped the sentiment and added some pearl flowers, pearl drops and a touch of glitter.

I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:

Congrats on surviving your move. I know how much work it is to pack and then unpack when you are tired. But you will find a routine in your new house and soon all your new organizing places will be second nature to you.

I see you found enough lovely supplies to have made a gorgeous card. Lots of beautiful embellishments on this card. Lovely colouring too!

Hi Lorraine, I've once read that moving to a new home one of the most stressful events in a life is so take the time to settle and find your home-feeling back :)
Your card looks adorable, beautiful colored and decorated. You've used beautiful dies, I love the butterflies, flowers and lace. I think that Tilda is feeling very happy on this beauty ;p
Greetings and lots of luck in your new home, Miranda
