Liebster Blog

I have received a lovely award for my blog from Charlotte!

The idea of the Leibster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.

It was a lovely surprise to receive this award from Charlotte, Thank You so much!

To accept the award, you have to :

1. Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you, Please pop over to her blog and have a look at her gorgeous creations!

2. Post the award on your blog.

3. Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate.

4. Leave a comment on the blogs of the 5 people you have chosen to let them know.

It wasn´t easy to choose only 5 blogs as there are so many talented crafters out there, but finally I decided to give it to these talented ladies:

Deb - Deb's Paper Creations

Julie - Paper Stamps Inks and Flowers

Denise - Passion for Paper

Shell - Tale's of Michelle

Suzie - Suzie McFloozy's Musings

Please go and visit these talented ladies and their blogs to look at all the lovely projects!

Magnolia Down Under - Sketch Challenge

Happy Mother's Day to all the Aussie Mum's today!

I do hope that you've all been very spoilt... my dear husband gave me amongst other things a box of HIS favourite chocolates..... wasn't that nice of him! I've used this weeks challenge to make a Mother's Day card for my Mum.

Our challenge at Magnolia Down Under was set by our lovely DT Lori  who has come up with a gorgeous sketch (with optional doohickey and doilies) to inspire you with:-

This week we have a $20 voucher to give away from our generous sponsor:-

This week I've chosen this gorgeous Ballerina Tilda and teamed her with the beautiful new Vintage Summer Basics 6x6 papers from Maja Designs. I've used two different DooHickey Dies the flourish and new border and my doily die is from Cheery Lynns.

Tilda is coloured with copics and I've added some stickles to her tutu. The sentiment is from SU and the flowers and seam binding are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:-
CES Challenge - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Pink & Girly

Colour Create - Green, Brown, White & Purple

Good Morning,

My apologies for the lateness of my Colour Create Challenge post - it's been one of those weeks!
This will be our last Colour Create Challenge for a little while so I hope you'll join us this challenge. Our talented DT Edna has chosen the colours and they do look beautiful. Edna's optional extra this week is to add a Metal element and this is the picture she's chosen to inspire us with:-

We are very fortunate this challenge to be sponsored by:-

and this is the beautiful prize up for grabs, some gorgeous metal embellishments:-

I've chosen to use this gorgeous Magnolia image, she's one of my favourites of the latest release. The papers are from Maja Designs, I've painted my metal corners with a little white acrylic paint and the rest of the items where all from my stash.

Tilda is coloured with copics and I've added a little liquid pearls and some dimensional  magic to the water at her feet.

I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:-
