Card Challenge

Hello, is any one else excited about Tim Holtz on QVC? not a channel I usually watch but I will be there tonight trying to get my ink stained fingers on some of Tim's New stuff, SO excited.

On to my card. Magnolia this week are doing a sketch fabby prize of two stamps, and as usual fab DT eforts. Basic Grey this week is a colour challenge, MARROON, LEMON & PINK, not one I would go for normally but I hope you think it works well on the card.

I think we all love Magnolia stamps, this is an image a lovely friend sent me, thanx Cheryl. you are such a sweetie and a lovely friend xx. I have ordered a one or two magnolia stamps last week I can't remember, infact I orderd lots last week and so this week will be like Christmas (oops!) well if I don't feel too guilty I'll take a photo ;0) I have coloured her with copics, I do feel I am getting better at this too! I don't know why but I find black hair really difficult some times and others just fine (who knows why?)

Isn't this charm just lovely? quite weighty too! I hand wrote the sentiment. Mothers day and my Mum's birthday are so close together, I don't like to do her out of a card (smiles). I have also done a few Easter note cards getting ready for the best time of the year .I love Easter as much as Christmas if not more it's a truly wonderful time to remember why we are here and of the greatest gift ever given (the Atonement) more of this closer the time ;0) Thank you for looking, and all your lovely comments, they keep me coming back to blog land and showing my efforts. Love Dawn xx

Items Used: Card Stock, SU. DP, Basic Grey. Charm, Bunny Zoe crafts. Ribbon Papermainia. Gems stash Punches, SU & MS/ Ink DI.
