Picking Pretty!

Hello there.

Well, it's been quite a while since I've been on here - let alone making any cards!  Let's just say that life is and has been pretty hectic and it's not over yet.  Somehow, I have managed to do a couple of cards and one of them I have based on the 'Live and Love Crafts February Sketch Challenge'.  

I've never made any of my cards based on a sketch so it was a newby for me - one that I really enjoyed though.  Saying that, I always enjoy my card making anyway!  Have a look and see what you think......

The beautiful lace and wishing well charm are from LLC and I really do love the items that Sandy sells.  If only I could buy, buy, buy plenty more.  I just adore the stuff and this lace is just gorgeous and I don't ever want to run out of it!  I've had the Magnolia Tilda stamp for quite a while and wasn't sure about her but I really enjoyed colouring her with my Promarkers.  Of course, the flowers are all from WOC and the colours of them go lovely with Magnolia and the Authentique papers I used.  I have also had a go at hand stitching the card - and when I say hand stitching, I mean it.  I couldn't use my machine as it has Gremlins - or I do - and I really wanted to make a card that had stitching on it, so I was determined and I think it came out not too bad!

With fingers crossed, I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:

Live and Love Crafts - February Sketch Challenge
You Me and Magnolia - Anything Goes Challenge
Magnolia Mania - Pearls and Lace Challenge

Well, I'm going to go and make a well earned - even if I do say so myself - cup of tea.  Hope you enjoy looking at my card and please feel free to leave a comment.

Many hugs
