Another Magical Monday.....


Hello again,

Well after my tale of woe this morning the sun came about about mid-day...... I've been outside and had a tidy up. One load of washing is blowing on the line and I managed, what I hope will be the final undercoat of paint on our bedroom windows.... yeah a good days work!

I was up early this morning checking all the tags made with last weeks I Heart You teddy image.
I loved them all, you girls who entered last week did a great job. Theresa, who has a fractured wrist joined in too, making a tag using Photoshop!!!!! Fantastic effort ... wish I could have done that!!!

TMITA/PCC has another great challenge for us today.
Nina has given us yet another sweet image to play with 'Flight of the Fuschia' and it's Patti's turn to set the challenge.
We've been challenged to make a 'Comforting" card (thinking of you, get well, sympathy, etc.), using Flourishes and/or Pearls. So here is my card 'Wishing you well".

I sized then printed the image, coloured it with Copics then cut it out. Not sure you can really see it here but I actually popped up one of the petals with a foam dot to give it some dimension.
My base card is white with a layer of pale lemon followed by the dp which is Basic Grey Sugar Rush. I used a Martha Stewart Daisy Fan punch to punch a strip of pale lemon card. Added some satin ribbon . I've attached the image with some fine foam tape to pop this up just above the dp.
The sentiment is from a GKD set stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto more of the pale lemon card. This sits on foam dots with two hot pink pearls. To complete my card I added two more pearls, one in each top corner. I'm hoping Patti won't mind that I didn't do flourishes....I would have loved to but don't own any........they are on my ever growing list...... but you know what that's like .....right?

Hope you'll play along with us this week, check out TMITA/PCC for the image and follow Patti's challenge. The randomly picked winner will get to pick one of Nina's images from her Paper Cupcakes online store. Good luck.

Till next time.........

Wow Sue is is gorgeous. I love the dove above the MS punched border. Your coloring is beautiful and stands out so well on the dp. Happy to hear your weather is better and you are able to finish working on your bedroom.

You are a workin' machine, Sue! Wish I had your energy! Love your card. I can, indeed, see that the center petal is raised - what a great idea! Your card is just delightful! I love the DP - it looks like real fibers! For a minute, I thought you had wrapped fibers around your DP! Great job, dear girl!!!

OMG! Even without the flourishes, this is just a FABULOUS creation! I love it all, but gotta say that border punch is beautiful and love how you pointed it up...I would've probably been boring and just put it down...funny how how minds get in ruts sometimes, isn't it?!

Anyway, thanks for the inspiration!
