Ahoy there!!!

Happy Friday from a VERY frustrated me!!! I have spent way too much time today trying to get my pooter sorted out because I couldn't get internet connection. After many, many, many attempts I finally made a phone call to Sky who advised me to unplug my router, leave it 30 seconds and plug in again! Voila! Grrr.....Not impressed!!!!! Why didn't I do that in the first place?

So, here is my latest Magnolia offering - it's my first ever side-step card and I made it for the village show tomorrow but based on Magnolia Down Under's theme for this week which is to use Tilda AND Edwin on your project! So here they are together. Painted with distress inks and stickles, I think I was a little heavy-handed with the ink this week but it was fun! Thanks for the challenge girls! And as luck would have it, I also put a boat on my card and Tuesday Tagger's theme this week wants just that so I am going to add it to their player's list as well! Again ladies, Thanks for the challenge!!! :o)

Also, over on Just Magnolia challenges this week they want you to use a sentiment on your card and I figured my card just about qualifies there also, so I'm going to submit it to their challenge this week as well!

And thanks to you for stopping by - hope to be back soon! :o) xx

Monogram Tag

Happy Sunday folks! You know when you get an idea in your head but it doesn't always translate properly onto paper? Hmmmm.... well, that's a little bit how my tag went for this week. Our theme over at Tag, You're It! this week is Monogram, and I had this brainwave to make a letter into an entire picture/tag. So rifling through my Magnolia's for inspiration I suddenly hit upon the idea to use this Edwin stamp from a couple of years ago and make the letter 'O' into a lifebelt! LOL!! Not sure if it actually looks how it was meant to look but I thought it was quite sweet anyway, so here is my tag for this week!
And I've just had another brainwave - watch this space..........
Thanks for stopping by! :o) xx
