Simply Magnolia - Love is in the Air

Welcome to another challenge at Simply Magnolia, where all Maggie stamp lovers meet.  Our theme this fortnight is Love is in the Air.  Our wonderful sponsor is Duymelot.

For this challenge I used Pink Tilda with Striped Tights.  She's adorable and an old favourite.  I've placed her on a gorgeous chair which is a local stamp, given to me as a gift from my friend Madeline.  I was thrilled to receive this in the post this week and just HAD to use it!  As you can see I have paper pieced it and for the first time ever (I'm slow I know hehe), I've paper pieced Tilda's dress too!  


The gorgeous leaves in the top left hand corner was also a gift from my friend Sandra.  This is really a beautiful punch and I was happy to receive a whole lot of punched leaves.  I've decided to use some brads on this card for a change, as they just collecting dust...hehe   As you all know, I luv my pearls and tend to ignore the other embellies I have !

Please visit the Simply Magnolia blog to view the rest of my teamies cards.  We hope to inspire you to take part in this challenge.

Happy crafting and thanks for popping by, hugs Sharon x

Hi Sharon. What a beautiful card to look at, so much colour and wonderful detail. That chair looks ever so comfy, I could just relax in that with a nice cuppa coffee and a couple of chocolate biscuits. Gorgeous sweetie as always. Happy crafting.
