Hi everyone, hope you've had a good week so far. Here's longing Tilda.....longing for froggy to turn into a prince no doubt :D and I've given her a castle tower to long from also using the castle window stamp. Everything is water coloured with distress inks, stickled and I've added glass glitter and stickles to the turret scallops and glossy accents and some glass glitter on the frog prince. The flag at the top of the tower is attached to a pin with a large head that's been glittered and stuck through the scallops at the back (these were cut on the cricut as was the blank that I've used to get the tower shape). Hope you're enjoying your Spring stamp kit if you got them too.
Thanks as always for your lovely comments, they're very much appreciated.
I'm entering the Just Magnolia challenge this week as it's anything goes.

Hi again and another post from me with a card I sent to a very special birthday girl who I now know has received it :) so I can show it here. I've used the gorgeous Princess Tilda, I love how she's holding her skirt up. She's coloured with distress inks, cut out with a nestabilities deckle edge rectangle die and I've added Stardust stickles because princesses should be sparkly :D. The mat layers were cut on the Cricut from white card and the bottom mat has been sponged with pink distress ink (spun sugar and victorian velvet) as have all the other edges and I also glimmer misted the pink layer with pearl mist. The mats are svg cut files, I had a question about another of these which I used on a previous card and tried to answer but couldn't get onto the lady's blog. I've decorated with little cream roses, some sparkly tulle that I got from the lovely Tab and a woodware sentiment on a labels die cut. Enjoy your day and thank you as always for your comments, I appreciate every one.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Lets go to the movies (I think Tilda looks like she's off to a premier :D )
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
Stampin for the weekend - Ribbons and bows
ABC challenge - Sparkle (goes without saying :D)
Magical Crafts - Something for the girls
Have a good Monday.

Hi everyone, more from MagnoliaINK Fairytale and my wedding project that was in the magazine without a Tilda or an Edwin in site but there are lots of Magnolia stamps. The gift boxes are for bridesmaid and grooms man gifts, the cufflinks and necklace sit on inserts which I made from white velvet card and the boxes are from a basic pizza box style which I just made much deeper than normal to look more like jewellery presentation boxes. All the flowers and leaves are from Magnolia, the leaves were holly leaves and so that I could use them for this project I shaped them with scissors to cut off the pointed edges. All of the white card and the flowers are glimmer misted with pearl mist, they're lovely and sparkly IRL. Hope your week is going well, I don't know why but the work week after a bank holiday weekend always seems longer than a normal one :)! TFL and thanks as always for your lovely comments, one of these days I'll catch up with blog hopping!

Hi everyone, hope you've had a lovely Easter break and lots of choccy :D. The Magnolia DT had the OK to share our projects from the Fairytale issue of MagnoliaINK so I thought I'd share this Easter project I made for the magazine today. It didn't go in the magazine but I really enjoyed making it and the early Simnel cake was very nice :D. TFL.
