MAGNOLIA BINGO!

Its a shame it was a cooler weekend but seems to have brightened up today which influenced me with my choice of colours on my entry to the Just Magnolia and hAanglar & sTanglar challenge which the theme was Bingo!  They have given you a choice of items to be on a straight line from the following:-



I chose a diagonal line of Gems, Flowers and Ribbon and Lace.




I have also followed the gorgeous sketch over on Friday Sketchers created by Jeanette and would like to enter it into the challenge over on Totally Gorjuss which is themed Spring.  I have used my new Magnolia Stamp called Hello Little Butterfly and coloured her in with my copics and Sakura glitter pen on the Butterfly.  Cardstock used is Daffodil Delight from Stampin Up as is the yellow polka dot dp which is from the Sunny Garden Designer Paper Series which I used my Martha Stewart Cherish punch for the fancy edging and the ribbon is also Daffodil Delight.  The Daffodil and Vintage Yellow Quilt pattered dp are both from Magnolia Somebunny Loves You range. I used my Cuttlebug Vintage die for the fancy corner, lace from my stash, pearls and flowers from wildorchidcrafts.  The sentiment I generated on my computer and cut out with my SU Modern Label Extra Large.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day.

ITS BABY TIME!

What a worrying couple of days I have had this past week.  My dad was told 2 weeks ago that back in November he suffered a mini stroke which at the time it happened he was admitted to Nottingham Hospital for various blood tests but as far as they could tell everything was ok!  A bit worrying when his eyesight wasnt 100% and when they discharged him the same day it had happened they wasnt bothered how he was going to get home!  Luckily he got in touch with one of his work colleagues who was in the area who fetched him.  Thursday just gone he had to have a MRI scan which my dad should have the results in about 3 weeks and today he has had to have an ultra sound!  I've got my fingers well and truely crossed that all is going to be ok.


Anyway back to my card.  I am entering this into four challenges which are:- Friday Sketchers Challenge 145, I Love Promarkers which is themed Babies,  ABC Challenge which is themed P is for Pearls and Totally Gorjuss which is themed Pearls and Lace.  I also have two friends who are both expecting (by coincidence) their third child and neither want to know what the sex is so tried to stay with a neutral colour!  Will make another baby card at a later date.



The image I have used is Willow holding Baby from Whiff of Joy coloured in Promarkers.  The cardstock used is from Stampin Up called Apricot Appeal.  The dp is from Nana's Nursery Baby Girl.  Lace was kindly given to me in a RAK from my DT friend Lacey, pearls are from Hobbycraft, flowers are wildorchidcrafts and fancy corners are from Cuttlebug Vintage set.

ALL PINK HANGLAR!

Well I have been a bit naughty today and whilst Seren had a surprise visit off her daddy as he needed some things for his bike I decided to make most of the free time to create a card.  I decided to have a go at the fab sketch over on Sketch Saturday and combine it with the challenge over on ABC Challenge which is P is for Pink.



I couldn't resist not using one of my new Hanglar stamps so chose one sitting down, coloured in my promarkers (I'm really getting to like using them again!) and cut out with my circular nestie.  I then pieced it onto a die cut cut out with my die-namics decorative doily.  All the following I have used are Stampin Up - Rose Red cardstock, Rose Red grosgrain ribbon, Rose Red dp from Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack and scallop circle punch.  The sentiment is from Justrite Birthday set, rose is from Prima and cherry blossom from wildorchidcrafts.  Adhesive gems are from my stash.
