just magnolia

finally i get the chance to get back to my favourite place here in blogland, the decorating is all finished and looks lovely only trouble now is the gloss is lovely and white in the dining room but makes the other rooms look like they need a coat of paint lol once you start it never stops eh !!

not much sleep for me last night my daughter was out in a tent in the mountains of snowdonia doing her duke of edinburgh practice expedition they had torretial rain and the tent filled with water so she not having an easy time of it... oh and the worst bit, according to the text this morning was getting chased a sheep !!!! haha, i know she will be fine but i'm her mum and its my job to worry !!!

This card is for the just magnolia challenge , now my new tildas have arrived i can take part, the challenge is pink and green

the paper is k&co the image is from the chasing butterflies collection as is the watering can, coloured with promarkers and cut with a nestie, the roses are wild orchid crafts and the sentiment is k&co and reads "a friend is the loving gardener who inspires the soul to blossom" a lovely sentiment which i dedicate to all the lovely people who follow my blog and who leave such lovely comments that continue to inspire me , thank you all

have a lovely day whatever you do

Thanks for popping in
