Thanks

Good morning. Did everyone's weekend go as quickly as mine did...??? I swear it was just too short :( DH and I are giving up smoking ATM too and so far so good - 36 hours without a cigarette. I tell you it is a struggle but we are determined to do it. Another NY's resolution. Wish us luck.

Okay on to my card. I made this card for Friday Sketchers with this fab sketch. I also made it for Just Magnolia with a challenge of making a Thank You card. So here it is. My good blogging friend Christine sent me this gorgeous Magnolia image and she snuck in some Hanglar stamped images as well as a sweet surpirse. Thanks heaps honey I really am going to have lots of fun with these. mwah mwah.
The gorgeous lace ribbon that I have used on the bottom is from Magnolia Down Under Store and is currently in stock. The personalized stamp (see below) is also available to order in store.



Products: Magnolia stamp; MDU personalized stamp; SU Basic Phrases stamp; SU card; Kaisercraft DP; Spellbinders Fleur De Lis die; Prima flowers; SU corduroy brad; Distress ink; circle punch.

Oh wow, I love this, the colours are beautiful and i think i have similar paper, same pattern but different colours. Your colouring is so beautiful and even the inside of your card is gorgeous. Good luck with the ciggies, it's tough but so worth it. You sound like you are doing great so far!!

Trace, Love the colour combo and another adorable Tilda, Your colouring is wonderful and a great take on the sketch.

Good luck with the smoking, I smoked a packet of 25's a day for over 20 years and gave up 3 years ago on New Year's Eve. The only resolution I have ever kept. If you need to talk email me. Hugs Jodie from Oz
