Magnolia's Brotherly Love + Challenges



Hello My Dears,  I am so glad the weekend is over and that I now have a couple of weeks of freedom from work or any kind of pressure.  I am going to enjoy the new 2 weeks organising my craft room (again!!)
and creating lots of lovely bits and bobs. 

I wanted to show you a card that I made this morning for a few challenges.  I've used the sweet Brotherly Love from Magnolia and coloured them with Pro Markers. Aren't they just adorable. My papers are from MME Summer range and I've layered them onto white card. The hearts are from a MS punch and I've sprayed them with tattered angels pearl glimmer mist. All the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and have been stickled with frosted lace.  The rest of my recipe is below this post.

The Challenges that inspired this wee card are:

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge:  They have a wonderful recipe this month of 3 types of pattern paper, 2 Magnolia Images ( my other image is my sentiment at the bottom of the card) 4 flowers and 1 ribbon.

Totally Tilda Challenge:  This fortnight the girls would like to see Roses & Ribbon.

The Shabby Tea Room Challenge: Have a theme of 11 elements to be used on your creation this week. I have 4 layers, ribbon, gems, image, flowers, tiles, sentiment, pearl pin. 

Some Odd Girls Challenge:  Would like to see 2 different types of bling on your creation. I've used stickles and glimmer Mist, plus as few gems. 

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge:  Would like to see something NEW and ribbon. My new item is my tiled letters and the rose ribbon. I must also tell you that there is a wonderful 1 year Blogaversary Candy over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  So do pop over and take part.

Stamp Insanity Challenge:  Would love to see some Sparkle this week.

Just Magnolia & hAnglar stAnglar Challenge:  Have the them of Anything Goes this week.


I hope you all have a wonderful day and week ahead of you.

There you go again with that beautiful rosebud trim and those terrific letters. Great paper and embellishments too! How I envy you having time off! The rest of the church staff all had two weeks paid time off over the holidays and yours truly worked throughout to keep the food pantry open. Time off is but a distant dream - can't wait for retirement LOL!!
