Hi everyone!

Oh I needed me some me time today.You all know that sort of time I mean don't you? that 'just for me to make nothing in particular and blooming well enjoy it' kinda time!!

And luckily for me, my gorgeous friend,Becky, had made a tutorial for something I just couldn't resist......a bit of time with my Magnolia stuff!!!!

I just pulled out all my magnolia yummies for this one and delved through them until I had a pile of bits I wanted!! he he!! ooooh it was so much fun!! A lot of my magnolia bits are the older bits but I just adore them.

 I am absolutely in love with the mini stamps (....hard to find but I absolutely adore them to pieces!!!) and the magnolia scenery stamps are just magical. There is nothing on this card that isn't magnolia apart from the kraft cardstock base!! lol!!
I paper pieced my lil fairies dress and boots so she matched the paper of the frame. I do love a bit of fussy cutting ( thank the lord for my stampin up scissors!!!!!!!!!!).

So that's me for today! Thank you for popping in

Jack waiting........

Image- Jack Waiting.

OOooooooooooooh I am so late with my Dream Team DT post today!! but I have been so enjoying spending time with my gorgeous hubby and son that I forgot to schedule up...but do you know what..that's just right for christmas!! he he!

This is a special card I made just for my little guy with the new Re-do of  Jack Waiting. The awesome new .png window meant that I could add a little santa and reindeer by merging them into the sky! wahoooooooooooooo!! of course, what you can merge into the sky is just an open boat of amazing possibilities but I knew what I needed for mine.

The little silver bell on the red ribbon at the top is because my special little boy still believes, despite people telling him at school that santa wasn't real. I blooming love that he had the strength to let them know what he believed and not be swayed by loosing the magic.

Hope you are all having a truly wonderful holiday period. I have really relaxed this year which was so very much needed and its been so lovely. I have made a scrummy lasagne for lunch and have a pavlova base cooking away in the oven for later....yummy!!! that won't last long!!!

Warmest Wishes....

Image- Warmest Wishes.
Morning all!

I'm in for you today with my make using Warmest Wishes. I am a sucker for an image like this, just makes me feel all warm and squishy inside!!!

I decided to go a little neutral with the theme on this one just incase I need it for a birthday so inside I used the 'sending warmest wishes' sentiment that comes with this cute lil gang.

Right, I need to go get a cuppa. Scott and I have got some bits to sort at school for Little Mo this morning and my tummy feels a little bit butterfly-ish. We don't know this school and its teaching team as well as Mo's amazing primary school team and knowing where to start is always a little worrying for a wuss like me!! 

Huge hugs and love
