MAGNOLIA FOREVER #62 CHALLENGE

Good morning, today is the start of our new challenge at
MAGNOLIA FOREVER
the theme this month is
LOVE/VALENTINE
our lovely sponsors are
i am roses
and
No automatic alt text available.

Here is my DT project one of my new Magnolia stamps
I decided to make both a card and MDF plaque, I used Dreamee papers to cover both the MDF plaque and MDF large flowers 
I stamped and coloured the image with markers I have added many embellishments including ribbon, bows, felt leaves, WOC flowers, gems lace to mention just a few.
I would like to enter my project into the following challenges





Unfortunately this will be my last post for awhile, I am still struggling with changes in my life which in turn have affected my crafting.
I had decided to close this blog down for good but my lovely DT teams have asked me to take a break instead.
I cannot believe the changes that have taken place this last year or since I started blogging, I do know that at the moment I am unable to find my creativity I know my frequent visitors and my friends will understand and I hope to see you all soon
love & hugs

A beautiful card and plaque Lorraine, they are both so pretty with lots of fabulous details and lovely colours.
I'm really sorry to read that you had decided to close your blog and I'm so pleased that your DT teams have asked you to take a break instead - I think this is the better option, you never know you might feel like crafting again after a break, I really do hope so, I would certainly miss your wonderful creations.
Take care.

I will miss your wonderful cards Lorraine. A break is a good thing. I didn't post much last year but have come this year feeling keen. I moved my craft room at the end of the year and thought i need to get rid of some fabric. I have rediscovered my sewing machine and loving it. Creating items for charity - a reason to create and the items will be used. I find this has motivated me. Good luck in all you do.

Jane Savage said...

So sorry to hear you're still struggling, Lorraine and will miss your fabulous designs but sometimes we need a break and take time to focus on more important things! Love your glorious card and plaque and hope to see you back really soon! Hugs xxx

KraftyKoolKat said...

Both your creations are gorgeous Lorraine. It is a shame you will be missing but I do whole heartily understand. I do not have the enthusiasm or the time since I lost Tony.
