Just Magnolia & wall update!

This card was made using the sketch from the Just Magnolia blog. Again, I sorted out my stamps and discovered just how many magnolia stamps that I have!! (oops!!) Anyway, here's my entry for this weeks challenge...

Oh, and here's an update on the wall that I started 2 weeks ago .... I'm not going to take it any higher, but I will be planting things to grow out of the top of it - watch this space!!!

The Sugar Bowl & Friday Sketchers challenges

I had a good sort out of my stamps yesterday, after stumbling on the The Sugar Bowl challenge again (it's been a while!!). Anyway, I couldn't remember what stamps came from where, so when I had sorted all my magnolias from my sugar nellies from my elzybells etc etc, I thought I'd better enter the challenge, so here it is...

and then I found a blog with a card made using some really cute geisha girls, so I thought I'd have a go at making some using shrink plastic, and here are the results, the first card was made using the sketch on Friday Sketchers...

N.B. I've managed to find the blog with the geisha girls card on it ...

Basic Grey challenge... gingham

I couldn't resist the urge to make new baby cards with this weeks challenge set by the BasicGrey Challenges blog. I have a friend who's due to pop any day now, the only thing is, I'm convinced she's having a boy so this doesn't help me very much!!!
