Loving wishes

Hi all

This was supposed to be a scheduled post yesterday , but whoops I pressed the wrong button when I was rushing so following a bit of tweaking you get two for the price of one today!
Well today certainly seems to have turned the corner when it comes to the weather. We have had fabulous blue skies all weekend and until we went outside it could have been mistaken for spring - Brrrr!! On Saturday I was at the Glitter Pot at another sumptuous Jane Gill class where we made some fabulous cards using her new Now and Forever set from Woodware . It was great to see all the usual suspects and catch up as many of us hadn't seen each other for over a month due to all the snow. On Sunday I took advantage of the great light and Dean being out at nets and had a little play with a load of new bits and pieces that have made their way to me over the last few weeks - I blame all the cabin fever from the snow!

So todays card uses the stamps from the Magnolia winter set which arrived a couple of weeks ago.
I also used the quilt card template, which has become a firm favourite following Jane Gills great demo last year. Thanks Jane, I really can't stop using this as it is so adaptable, addictive but mostly very relaxing to sit and fold in front of the TV at night!

I have also managed to cover off three challenges:

A Spoonful of sugar - Freestyle
ABC - Masking
Creative Inspirations - Feminine

The Tilda and the candlestick have been stamped onto the masked piano and coloured with copics. I then stamped and coloured another tilda and mounted her over the edge of the quilt to give her some depth.
On the second quilt I have used the Elegant heart and once again stamped another image, coloured it with copics, embossed the back and mounted it with pinflair glue.
A close up just to show that the stickles are back on my desk!

Recipe: Stamps: Magnolia - Noble Tilda, Elegant Heart, Champagne & Candelabra, Loving wishes, Janes Script. Papers: Bazzill basics, Papermania signature linen. Stardust stickles....

Thanks for looking
