Hello everyone

Sorry that I have been missing in action for a while.

I have been busy making fabric flowers and watching You Tube for inspiration and wow what a bunch of super talented ladies, there are out there!

Here are a selection of the ones that I have been making. 

I have made dozens, but I dont want to keep you too long, so here are just a  few.










I have also made a card with hand made flowers and I actually cut the fabric with a magnolia die, I will be back soon to show you that.

Thank you for popping by today.

Take care Jay xxx

Onto my card, I have made another Wedding card...


I have coloured the image with copics, with a little frantage and my papers are Create and You.
My stamp was bought from Swedish House Crafts, the flowers are of course Wild orchid and the organza and pearl trim is from NOOR Design UK, all of which, sponsor our challenge throughout the year.


This picture, shows the tag replaced back behind the image, in its little paper envelope that I bought from Live and Love Crafts.

A Brand New Challenge Begins Today as Marvelous Magnolia


Hello Everyone,

Today is the beginning of a brand new challenge theme over at
Marvelous Magnolia!!!

The super easy peasy theme is Anything Goes and the randomly
chosen winner, will be invited to join our team as our Guest Designer!

We are looking forward to seeing your ATG creations and popping
along to your blog to say hi!!!

Here is my card...


Tilda is coloured with copics and I mounted her onto one of my scrapinec woodchip frames, I had to cut up the wood chip wording so it would fit inside the frame, but I am pleased with the result. My papers are Maja and Pion and the two little tags are from my crafty stash. 
I didnt use too many embellishments, as the paper is too gorgeous to cover up, with all those stunning flowers around the edges.

I have die cut a variety of Magnolia die cuts and the inner frame also has a hand cut lilac frame around it and I have dyed my cheesecloth Lilac to match my theme.
Many thanks for stopping by today and we look forward to seeing your scrummy creations in our challenge.

Sweet Magnolia Post for LHOSM Challenge... Anything Goes!

You may enter as many creations as you wish!

Please pop on over to the challenge and join in the fun!!!

Here is my card...


I wanted to make an easel card for a change and this is a very fussy card, even for me!!! It did start off a large blossom shape, but I think that shape has been lost behind all my embellies  he he!


I  have used craft and You papers,  made my own 3 layer bunting, and a bit of chipboard, I dyed my cheesecloth with my DI's, blue and Pink to match my colour combo, which I use regularly. 
I also used my stampelglede stamps for the sentiment and post marks on the image!


I deepened the colour of the pink seam binding with dye, for both of my tags, tied with natural hemp twine and added little pocket watches to each one. 


The gorgeous flowers are of course from our sponsors store and the butterflies are made from a memory box butterfly die, I tied the middles with sissal, which adds a lovely delicate trailing effect!

Please pop over and join in the challenge, HERE, you still have 12 days to do so!!

Many Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely Sunday!!!
