Well Hello

Okay I cant say two weeks have gone fast but I will say I had great intentions to do some blogging had a list in my head of what I was going to create I even started a page. But some times life gives you other things that just seem to come first all things get put a side and you do what has to be done. but I got this card finished in time to put up for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge..... Flower Power

As I had to take the photo at night I changed the settings on my camera so I did not use the flash but have a slight sepia tone to it I just couldn't get the right lighting so it will have to do.
I used both distress inks and my Copics on this card
the paper is from the card makers pack Garden of Blue Flowers over at Megs Garden I am very excited with my latest  papers drop on buy at Megs and have a look
And don't forget Magnolia Down Under if you don't have a blog just email your entry in
Hope your weekend has been a lovely one and here's hoping that I don't wait another two weeks before I blog again

Challenge 83

This is a sketch challenge over at Magnolia down Under created by Kristy
Sorry not many pics of my card this time, very lucky to get it uploaded in time, but because it is going to my niece who was my little flower girl when I got married, and now a grown women with 3 lovely children of her own is celebrating her 30th birthday this weekend it made me want to finish it.
Got some good news wont be long and my next collection will be available on their way to the printers, so stay tuned and here is another sneak preview of the new range THE GARDEN OF BLUE FLOWERS

 made my own flower am playing with different fabrics this is Dupion Silk.
was trying for a shabby chic feel, have trouble getting it shabby enough for my liking, I love that style, and its funny how hard we try it still looks like my style what ever it may be.
I will try not to leave it another two weeks between post I can not say with confidence that my work load has decreased just when you think you are close to the end of the list of things to do more gets added on the end,
The Never Ending List
