Our challenge today over with the Just Magnolia girlies is

Let’s Get Sentimental

so that’s the quote I used – I thought it went well with Miss Shopping Tilda. If you get a sec peeps, check out the challenge because there really are some absolute beauties today, including a quote from Kathy which made me cry, it is so lovely.

Plus ….

Now I’ve got a bit of an experiment for you here lol xxx I did my card, took the pic then couldn’t decide if  it needed something else.

So …

This is the ‘before’  pic -

- and this is the ‘after’.

Now I can’t decide which one I prefer really. What do you think peeps – with our without the embellies?

Anyway I coloured the image with me Copics of course, and talking of Copics, our Dena has done an amazing card which was inspired by the work on this amazing blog. Now this lady can REALLY work those Copics!!!!

Colours used were -

B0000, B00, BG01, BV0000, BV00, BV02, BV13, BV31, C00, C1, C3, E00, E21, E37, E42, E50, R11, R20

and of course they are available from Dies To Die For

The beautiful blooms and pearl sprays are all courtesy of the wonderful Paul & Siri at Wild Orchid Crafts and the gorge papers are, yes you guessed it, Vintage Rose from the also very wonderful Liz at Pink Petticoat.

I cannot stop using them :)


It would seem that I cannot stop signs this little sweetie either. Its me new Magnolia Old Swedish Lace which I got from  Crafts U Love – and such speedy delivery as well!!

Soz about the lighting on these pics today peeps. The weather is atrocious here – it’s probably the same where you are as well. The light is awful and despite having a brilliant white background on my light box thing, all the pics are turning out with  a bit of a ‘50 fags a day’  look about them :(grrrrr!!

Well the new puter didn't get put up last night as a) Emma and Kyla came round and b)  R was busy shooting tin cans on the Wii. He keeps trying to better his score and has that ultra competitive mentality that sportsmen have. Quite frankly,  I think he could become obsessed and I’ll be sleeping with one eye open if he carries on lol !!!  I’ve unpacked it all and hoovered up the corner where the old decrepit one was, and no, I am not talking about Richard ‘Wii age of 83’ May here!!!  So I’ll set it all up  and sort it out later – hopefully!!!!

Emma is off the ‘V’ today so we have the pleasure of her ladyship all weekend :) Em thinks she has one more festival left in her and then she is going to hang up her pink and flowery wellies for good, bless her. We’ll see!! We are planning to do lots but it’s all dependant upon the weather of course.

So on that note I’m off to do some work - enjoy the weekend and see ya soon.

Hugs to all xxx

Andrea said...

Ann Rosie said...

The flowers get my vote - your arrangements are also so beautiful.

Tracey T said...

Both of the cards are lovely, Dawny, but I prefer the one with the embellies just because I do like a bit of bling. Hope the weather improves for you - the sun is trying to come out here in SW Scotland after a miserable morning! Tracey x

Ina said...

Lovely card, but I prefer the one with the embellies. Sometimes i try to make a card without them, but in the end I always add them. LOL

Autumn said...

They are both great, but I think I'm leaning a bit more towards the embellies.

Laila said...

Love your cards, and esp the fab quote :o) That would be my line too, if it wasn't altready taken...

Marjo said...

Hi Dawny,

I drooled onto your blog from another fellow DT at Wild Orchid Crafts. OMG, you ladies are beyond words fabulous crafters. I am becoming a follower just so I can I am a relative newbie. I am having difficulty with embellies myself. Both way's are gorgeous. I lean to the less is more, in my case less is usually not enough.... Hoping to learn from all you wonderful ladies. Thanks for being so talented. Looking forward to seeing your fabulous creations in my dashboard.

Hugs, Marjo
