Simon Says Just Magnolia xxx

With a bit of sugar on the top lol xx
It's another treble - you probably gathered that lol xx So I combined the Simon Says Stamp challenge which is Buttons and Ribbons (fab), with Just Magnolia which is a gorgeous sketch by Martine and then the Spoonful Of Sugar challenge which is Floral Fantasy

Tilda has been coloured with the bad boy PMs and given a dusting of bling. You can get your hands on her and her friends over at Dies To Die For.

And this is the old card. There is a fair old bit going on here - well for me at any rate. But I like the pretty colours and I think it's really girlie :)

There was an option on the sketch to use a tag, so I did. The tag pull was made using a SU punch and the sentiments are from a Woodware set.

The ribbon was a bargainous buy from The Paper Mill Shop - it was reduced to £3.29 for 20 metres!!! It is lovely quality as well.

The blooms were part of my Simon Says Stamp prize and the buttons were lurking about in my stash box


All the beautiful papers are PP - Stripes, Ice Cream Curls and Little Fleurs. That glittery lace I THINK was from Hobbycrap but I wouldn't swear to it!!


And that is that, as they say!!!


We took Kyla to the circus last night.

I don't really think she enjoyed it 100%!! It was an animal free circus - otherwise I would not have gone. But the clowns (who I swear I wanted to choke because they were so annoying - party pooper or what!!) did a bit of a ghost busters thing and it terrified the hell out of her. To make matters worse, we were sitting right at the front and the 'ghost' came right up to where we were sitting. She went rigid and screamed. Luckily the rest of the kids were screaming as well, but for very different reasons!! I did feel guilty, poor little thing.



So if you have youngsters and you are thinking of going (it's touring the UK), it's probably best not sit too near the front lol xx. We were almost of the verge of having to take her out but it was soon over and she was ok again.

And there was a really strange act as well - oooo errrr. It involved two girls being hauled up on one of those wires and they did their acrobatics thong whilst hanging in the air. But it was ever so slighly 'verging on the porn' we thought. Nikkie said that that bit was probably for the dads!!!

Ohh matron lol xx



Anyhoos, I doubt we will be going back.

And on that rather strange note, I'm off to sort our dinner out. Hope everyone is having a fab weekend xxxxx

Another beautiful card Dawn - and with my favourite papers too!!
I know what you mean about the risque costumes - I took my boys to Blackpool Tower Circus last year and yes, the outfits leave nothing to the imagination, let alone the positions they put themselves in ... On that eye-watering note, I'll wish you a nice weekend!!!
