Another Snowy Hugs Tilda on a snowy day



Hi All

Yeah we had a very light sprinkling of snow last night and our son's football match was called off this morning so we all had a nice lie in.  Ben has a slight cold and sore throat so was probably best for him not to be playing in the freezing cold today. Doesn't look like James' match will be on tomorrow either so will have a nice football free weekend.  I do enjoy their football but once in a while it is nice to have the weekend free!

I had a nice surprise from the postman this morning which has cheered me up and that is the blog candy that I won from Chrissy over at Paper Ink Colour.  Thank you Chrissy.

Today's creation (made last night but unable to take a good photo at night) is Magnolia Tilda Snowy Hugs which I just adore.

Products used:

Magnolia Tilda Snowy Hugs image - new
HOTP papers - very old

Pink Magnolia Tilda Card

Hi All

I am now back from my week in Wales.  We all had a great time even managing to climb Mount Snowdon.  I have to be honest and say that I nearly didn't make it up to the summit it was so much harder than it was 15 years ago (or is that just because I am now older and a lot more unfit) - even my husband with his bad leg found the climb up easier than I did and my 10 year old son wasn't even out of puff after 8 hours and could even run back to the car.  

Anyway have eventually managed to make this card:

















Stamp - Magnolia Tilda
Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Papermania I think very old
MS heart punch and heart border punch
Craftwork Cards candy
Flowers and gems from stash

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Hello and welcome to my new blog. I can't believe that I now have my own blog. I have been thinking about creating one for months but just haven't got round to it as it seemed such a daunting thing to do. Anyhow I eventually got round to doing it and it wasn't too bad a task once I got stuck into it.

So am now going to add my first card in the hope that it appears where it should do.


As you can see I eventually managed to add my card although it has taken me quite a while to move the image to below my text. The card is a lovely golden colour for the summer and I have used my new Whiff of Joy stamp. Hope you like it.

Off now to finish my housework and hopefully get an hour or so in the garden as the sun is out.

Sarahxx
