Magnolia Card!

Hullo, Hullo, my lovelies!!
What glorious weather we have been having, hence the lack of posts for a while!
We spend a lot of time outdoors in this weather and I can't seem to bring myself to sit inside when it is lovely and sunny as I like to make the most of it while it lasts.
I am also very guilty of looking at what everyone else has created instead of creating myself!!
I have finally got round to having a little play and used the fab sketch from Sketch Saturday, I must admit I did struggle as I hadn't made one for soooo long and looking at it now I think it looks a bit bare!!
I love this little magnolia stamp and this is the first time she was inked (along with a lot of my stamps)
As she was a cooking tilda with her wooden spoon I thought you may like to see what we do a lot of in our garden when it's nice and sunny and that is eat Al Fresco, as soon as that sun peaks out the bbq comes out
Am i making you hungry??

Yummy yummy yum yum!!!!
Obviously had to take the snap whilst it was cooking as believe me when it's cooked it's a case of now you see me now you don't!! lol
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
Just Magnolia - button bows and bling ( i have used bows)
Cupcake crafts - letter c I have a cupcake
the paper variety - polka dots
Wishing you a lovely day!!


  1. Hi Sue
    WOW what a pretty card, you have just reminded me that I have this (very) sweet Tilda, also love the D.P. Your B.B.Q. looks jummy, I know what you mean about not wanting to craft inside WHEN the weather is so good, BUT I'm glad you did decide to go indoors to make a card because it's lovely, I s'pose you could always take your crafting bits outside, (as long as you don't get plagued with ladybirds) lol.
