Happy Monday

So? How was your weekend? Did you get up to anything nice? Me? I got to craft!!! Woo hoo...I was so happy cutting, chopping, colouring and  glittering up my new i..... {hand slapped to mouth}!!! ALMOST made me say it but luckily I caught myself in time lol. There's no tell what the boss would do to me if I let the cat out of the bag so soon ;-D

I noticed that I lost a follower yesterday :-( I hope it wasn't anything I said or did but maybe he/she just needed a break and will come back again :-)

I've got another Magnum card to show you...I told you I was busy the other weekend. I've not done a lot of surfing of late but I did manage to have a quick look at MFT's blog and they've got so many great ideas not to mention DIES!! If I won the lottery I think I would buy ALL of them...they really are fabulicious! I used my new mini ticket die which I bought after seeing it used previously on their blog. I thought it was a cute way to use it...this is what I came up with....

I'm still using stamps that haven't seen daylight in a while and Tiptoeing Lily was another one begging to be inked. I used my favourite paper pad of the moment....well, it's my favourite so much I can neither remember what it's called or find it so I'll get back to you on that one. Hang on!!! Found it (do you get moments like that??)'s MME Stella Rose, Hattie. I did a bit of colouring with my Copics, cut out the images and mounted them on circles I cut and embossed with my Nesties and Cuttlebug folder. A bit of stitching here and there and finally I stamped the sentiment onto one of the mini tickets adding a rolled flower and some pearls I coloured with my Copics to match. Done!

Isn't that just the cutest thing

Normally I make cards as I need them but that gets me into trouble as you know I always end up being late. I've now got a box for completed cards ready to send...I do get there in the end!

I'd love to enter the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Sew Many Cards - Circles

If you like Tiptoeing Lily you can still get her for 1/2 price in the January Sale along will all the other cling stamps :-D

My tummy's rumbling so I'm off to get some lunch. Hope you have a good week and thanks for stopping by :-D

Catch ya later x
