Magnolia down Under :: Bling it on!

The challenge this week at Magnolia Downunder is:


Now I used quite a bit of bling....
1. rhinestone on the heart at the top of the Eiffel Tower..
2. lots of KindyGlitz...and
3. some silver brad in the middle of the flowers! :) I love sparkles and bling. lol!
4. Oh and Don't forget the DCWV Glitter stack :)

I used 2 Magnolia stamps... the Eiffel Tower + Tilda in Paris which is actually owned by my sister Nic (who funnily enough is in Paris now!)

I had a few troubles getting a good photo due to the sparkles!! But you get the idea...
here is a close up of Tilda for you...

Dottie's World :: use that Photograph

Well Juliet set such a fun challenge on Dottie's World I just had to enter.... I coloured this image on Sunday but did not get the card done until tonight... Busy day today ... jewellery making at church (to send down to ladies in Victoria) and then a friend's bridal shower!

Ok.. so what about the challenge?? Juliet said:

"You can take whatever you like from the photograph: you could focus on the colours, use a cupcake on your work or make a cupcake shaped card - it's up to you. You must include one of the Charmed downloads on your project and please tell us how the photo inspired you in your make by leaving a comment and linking to your blog..."

So here is her photo:

And here is my card (sorry for the poor quality - taken on my mobile as flat batteries for camera... oops!! ... I was mostly inspired by the colours in the cupcakes... but I also liked the spotty tablecloth and so used the dots and colours for a border... and I couldn't forget that wafer .. so the sentiment is sitting on a wafer shape!

CLOSE up of Holly - I used the image Lou gave as a freebie for entering last weeks challenge... Isn't she just gorgeous!!

Thanks for looking :)

  • Has to have a Tilda not Edwin….
  • And lastly has to have a Autumn Theme
So here is my card!

Thanks for your well wishes on my silly hand... it is healing (just sore) .... Still hard to type/ hold things/ craft .... but I will be visiting blogs to leave comments tomorrow!! yay!

I won't be blogging... or commenting for a bit....

Hi everyone,

I had a bit of an accident this morning - When slicing my dense gluten free bread.... I accidentally sliced a little chunk of my palm ... oops! So after 2 hours in the emergency department and a couple of different dressings (but no stitches thankfully!! just dressings) I was on my way to work... only thing is...

It's rather painful and makes it VERY hard to type...seeing as I will be one handed typing all day at work + no use of a second opposable thumb I guess I'll now take a little forced break from blogging + crafting too :( I'll still pop by and read your blogs (and even comment a few times If I can)
