It's been another busy work week for me. Like London busses - nothing comes along for ages and ages and then three come at once. I am soooooo busy work-wise and I'm really sorry that I have been such a bad blogger. I am especially sorry that I have been neglecting my visits to my blog buddies! There have been cards I wanted to make, even cards I needed to make but the only one I managed to make is the one for today's challenge at
I decided to use this fabulous Magnolia Twins stamp which I won from the mega talented Maddy at Madimaginations. Thank you again Maddy! I have been saving this stamp for this week's Stamptacular challenge.
Simply Magnolia - where there is an "anything goes" theme
Magnolialicious - with a lovely photo-inspiration - I used the duck-egg blue and pinks on my card, and
Wild Orchid - who want to see "shabby chic friendship"
I'm not quite sure what "shabby chic" is. In terms of decor, I thing the photo inspiration at Magnolialicious is probably shabby chic so I hope I have got it right.
I used K&Co papers with a vintagey, cottagey feel and tattered the edges. My Magnolia twins are coloured in a Copic/Promarker combo. I was pleased with how their dresses turned out. For our Stamptacular "seeing double" challenge this week I used 2 pink Prima flowers, 2 swirls (cut with my Cricut), 2 heartshaped buttons (probably by Dress it Up), 2 large photo corners (using a Marianne die) and 2 gorgeous Wild Orchid roses which I got as part of a present from the special friend who is to be the recipient of this card.
Please do come and play along with us this week where one lucky winner will win a $20 gift certificate from Simon Says Stamp. There is lots of lovely inspiration for you on our challenge site!
