Double Challenge


This week I have been really clever, I finally got myself into gear to complete a challenge for "Just Magnolia" on Thursday along with the "Friday Sketcher".

For the Just Magnolia one I had to use stitching or faux stitching, and as I am hopeless with anything to do with needlework I opted for the faux stitching and stamped around the edges. For the Friday sketcher it is self explanatory and this is my take on it. I have used some background papers from my stash that I had bought back in the summer from Costco that I thought would be perfect for this. I coloured my image with the good old promarkers on my adorable Tilda, stamped a sentiment circle, added some flowers and bling and hey presto I have managed to do two. Whoa, I have even surprised myself but what good fun it was and I feel a real sense of achievement.

Well have a good day, I must get off to work now to earn a bit more to buy some more he he!
