just magnolia week #1

a new challenge blog started this week called just magnolia and i couldn't wait to get started on the card. the layout is the sketch that was set by donalda. as my youngest grandson starts 'big school' in september (i know i have got a few months yet!!) i thought i would make him a card for that special day. the stamp is edwin with pencil which i got from the glitter pot the pile of books came from them as well. the papers are from a scrapbook in a pad which again i found when i had a clear out. i used my eclipse tape on edwin so that i could stamp the books to show him sitting on them. i love the crayon buttons, the colour scheme has all of georges favourite colours. now i am off to get some sleep, night night x

friday sketchers # 48

i know it's late but i want to post two cards, today was the first day back at school after the 2 week break for easter and boy was it hard to get motivated!!!! it was ok but i would have much rather been home crafting> this card is for the challenge on friday sketchers and i struggled with this one, this is my 3rd attempt and i am still not sure about it. i don't know the make of the stamp or where the papers are from but all have been in my goodies for ages. its good to start using bits and pieces that i have had for a while,(makes room for new stuff!!!)x
