Magnolia Down Under - No. 44

Happy Bank Holiday Monday folks! Not exactly a typical May day I was hoping for - blimey, it's so cold!!!! I bought some bedding plants last weekend. They'd come from Holland and were really well established so I did all my pots for the front of the house - I won't be at all surprised if they've died of frostbite overnight!!! I can't believe how cold it's gone!

Anyway, I've managed to take part in the Magnolia Down Under challenge this week. This is the first time I've taken part in this one and as it was a great sketch, I could hardly resist, could I? I've had these new papers by Tina Higgins from GCD Studios and I absolutely love them. I visited one of my most favourite craft places on Saturday, Paperworks near Alcester and I was really surprised to find it is under new management. The new lady who owns it, Sheila, is just the most lovliest of people you'd wish to meet! She and Pauline (the amazing designer and course tutor) are working really hard to make what is already a fabulous craft outlet into something even bigger and better and I am so excited for them (and for me as it's only 20 minutes drive!! LOL!). I think the website is currently being reconstructed to make it easier to navigate so bear with them. The shop will also have a name change but for the life of me I can't remember what that is - shocking memory. I think it's something like Pink Tulip Crafts???? (eeeek.....sorry if I got that wrong Sheila!!!)
Right then, plug of the day sorted, here is my card based on the sketch - hope you like!
All painted with distress inks (Weathered Wood and Vintage photo) but I made a gaff with her hair because I tried to get clever and paint it with H20's which is what I used to use - hmmmm... I won't be going there again methinks!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy your BH Monday! :o) xx
