Sweet Magnolia.

Good morning everyone from a very wet and slushy Aberdeenshire. It's really horrible here today. Sleety and windy. The snow is rapidly disappearing here. As the crow flies we are only 2 or 3 miles away from the North Sea so we have not had actual snow falling this last couple of days. We're surrounded by fields so all I can see are the remains of the snow and water everywhere....yuk. Even my Labrador wasn't keen on going for a walk today.

But on to my card! I have been so busy trying to comment on the entries for my 2 DT challenges that I haven't done much in the way of crafting! It's very time consuming but it's lovely to see other people's work. I made this card last night just because I wanted to enter Just Magnolia. Haven't they given us a lovely sketch this week. I made it into an easel card so it also fits the Magnolia Down Under challenge.

I think it also fits the following challenges:-

Stamp Something :- A Touch of Spring.

Magical Crafts :- Something for Mum.

Basic Grey :- Maroon, lemon and pink - the lovely Lemonade paper.

Everybody Art Challenge :- Easel card.

Secret Crafter :- Mother's Day.

I also used - Card candy and sentiment from Craftwork Cards, gorgeous roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, Promarkers, raffia lace and ribbon. Oops nearly forgot I sprayed the flowers with Glimmer Mist.

I think that's about it. Now I need to go and make a card for my husband's birthday.....which is today! My son-in-law's birthday was yesterday and he got his card and present on time but I kind of ran out of time to make hubby's card. Possibly because I made this card last night lol! I won't be able to post his card till the weekend as I'm intending to make his card one of my DT cards so you'll be able to see it on Sunday.

See you all later if I don't get too caught up with my DT work.
