just magnolia

evening everyone, hope you've all had a nice relaxing sunday, the weather here was beautiful today , though the wind was a little chilly at times, we've been out to my mums for sunday lunch today it was lovely, its funny how sunday roast always tastes nicer when you dont have to cook it yourself.
i managed to get a card made tonight for the just magnolia challenge ....a fabulous sketch by bev to work with and this is what i ended up with

the paper is papermania and the edges are inked with a whispers lilac ink pad, the image is from the magnolia chasing butterflies collection, coloured with promarkers and cut with labels 4 nestie,the lace is papercellar, the ribbon from stash, the flowers are joanna sheen, the swirl stamp was a magazine freebee and the butterfly gems are papermania and the embossing border punch is martha stewart.

i have a couple of thank you's to say to Barbara and Suzanne for these awards it so sweet of you for thinking of me and i would like to pass them on to all of the lovely people who very kindly follow my blow , i know i'm supposed to choose but its so difficult to do, if you havent had them before please help yourself cos you all deserve them

from Suzanne The Karma Award:

Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly written text into the body of their award.
