Hi everyone hope the week is going well for you. A card today with the gorgeous tulip Tilda which I was lucky to receive on Saturday. I've also used the Magnolia Windmill and tulip stamp and masked them all to make the little scene, I see her in the beautiful Netherlands at tulip time :). Everything is water coloured with distress inks with added stickles and some copic spica glitter pen on Tilda's dress. I did a bit of faux stitching and then mounted the image on lemon glitter card, rounded off the corners and used one of the Nestabilities frames elements to decorate the four sides. The background paper is by Magnolia, distressed on the edges and to finish off I added some punched butterflies with pearls.
I'm entering my card into
Cute Card Thursday Dimension, well I hope I'm in time?
Thank you for visiting and as always for your lovely comments.

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. Mine was great because I had a lovely day at the NEC meeting up with my blogging friends Kim, Jo, Tara, and Georgia and also met Tab, Heather, Louise, Cloe and Clare for the first time. It was lovely to briefly chat with Jacque, Bev and Dawny P (Garners to you girl :D) and the whole day was even more special as I was able to share the journey with my lovely friend Kim which meant the hours of driving whizzed by :D. Thanks to you all girls for making the day very special and I look forward to the next one :).
It was lovely to meet Barbro and John for the first time at the Magnolia stand, a lovely couple and they kindly treated me to a gorgeous new Tilda which I'll be showing soon. I also added a few more Magnolia lovlies to my collection and some pretty Magnolia flowers. I loved seeing the stand all set up and the beautiful cards made by my Magnolia DT friends on display, they're even more beautiful in real life.
My little Easter Basket (instructions courtesy of America [thank you America, I love it] at The Cuttlebug Challenges Blog) with the gorgeous bunny Tilda includes one of my NEC purchases :), the grass punch which I used on some Doodlebug green velvet card. The top of the basket and the handle are punched with another MS, the lattice edger punch. I decided Tilda would be a pink bunny and she's water coloured with distress inks, cut out and placed sitting on the grass, there's some stickles of course :) and some flowers punched from glitter card with pearl centres. I added some pretty ribbon and embossed the panel around the basket with the CB Swiss dots embossing folder.
I'm entering my basket into these challenges:
Cuttlebug Challenges - Easter
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Easter
Cupcake Challenges - Easter, spring and lots of chocolate
I don't suppose the mini eggs in the basket will last much longer than it takes me to publish this post :). TFL and thanks as always for your comments.

Magnolia Easter basket
Hi everyone, hope you’re having a good week so far. A Magnolia Easter DT project from me today which is this little Easter basket cut out on the cricut using a cut file from SVG Cuts using bazzil card and the lovely new spring Magnolia paper. Tilda with Chick is water coloured with distress inks, cut out, stickled and attached to the basket along with the cute little chick stamp and the tulip stamp which are also water coloured. The beautiful butterfly ribbon that I’ve wrapped around the handle is from the Magnolia shop along with the green roses, ribbon and feathers. The basket turns out big enough to hold two tubes of Cadbury’s mini eggs :D. TFL.
I’m entering my card into:
Roses on Paper ‘Easter creation’
A spoon full of sugar ‘Easter’
The Pink Elephant ‘Spring’
Pile it on ‘Pastel colours’

Magnolia DT card
Hi everyone, hope you’ve had a good day today. Here’s another of my Magnolia DT cards this time featuring the gorgeous butterfly Tilda from Chasing Butterflies collection last spring and the little rose stamp. I’ve watercoloured her with distress inks, cut her out and and added little wire antennae and lots of stickles. The background card and papers were all sent by Magnolia so I’m afraid I don’t know the brands and all the flowers and leaves and dark blue ribbon are from Magnolia too. The blue scalloped circles were all cut with nestability dies and the one behind Tilda has been embossed with a CB swirls folder. They’ve all been sponged with white ink and stickled of course :D. I also used up a small piece of the vellum paper I made for my Magnolia chocolate box card for the bottom and I sprayed the background card under it so that there’s a bit of blue showing through.
I’m entering my card into these challenges:
Cupcake Challenges ‘flower power’
Stamp with Fun ‘spring’
By the cute and girly ‘spring’
Should be up to date soon hopefully so that I can catch up with what you’ve all been doing :D. TFL tt for now.

BG Challenges 14
Hi everyone, hope the weekend is off to a good start for you. A card today for the next BasicGrey Challenge and this time there’s a lovely inspiration photograph as the theme. As always my DT friends have come up with some amazing cards so I hope you can join us. As always we’re sponsored by Simon Says Stamp with another great prize on offer as long as you include an item by BasicGrey.
I went with the yellow colour from the photograph and the little bunny on the shelf so I’ve used some paper from the Porcelain collection, which is so pretty with a lacey pattern and also some of the new Magnolia bunny paper. I’ve stamped the sweet Little Bunny Tilda from the new Magnolia Easter collection and she’s coloured with distress inks then cut out. The lace and white sparkly roses are by Magnolia as is the sentiment, the daffodils are from my stash. I just realised that I’ve left off the other two butterflies that were supposed to be in the middle panel :), will have to see to that later! Enjoy your Saturday and TFL.

Magnolia DT card
Hi everyone, hope you’re having a good week so far! Another Magnolia DT card from me today using the lovely heart chocolate box, the rose stamp and the gorgeous Dinner Tilda.
Everything is water coloured with distress inks apart from the background paper which I made by stamping the rose onto vellum, heat embossing with white embossing powder and then colouring on the reverse side with copic markers (a nice tip from my friend Sandra :)) and it gives a lovely soft look to the roses and quite different from those I’ve stamped and water coloured. Everything has been cut out and arranged over the card blank which was cut with a labels nestie die and some ribbon and lace. I added some pearl pen, stickles and some of the pretty lilac bead strands which Magnolia have just brought out to decorate.
Have a nice evening, thank you as always for the lovely comments you leave and which I appreciate very much, I hope to catch up with my blog hopping when I get all my DT cards done. TFL.
