Kitchen Tilda

So .... I told you I'd be back ....

This seems to be my MO - get nothing done and then all of a sudden I can't get enough finished and posted lol.

I am sooo in love with Magnolia stamps and have done much practicing with them but could never get the effect that I see on so many beautiful creations in blog land, but last night it all seemed to just come together.  Maybe because I picked the stamp and then the papers to match the stamp and then coloured rather than colour and then try to find paper to match!!  It also helped that there were some great challenges I found to fit the colour/theme I was wanting to use, like the ones at Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge - "My Favourite Things, The Shabby Tea Room "Classic Patterns & Photo Inspiration" , A Spoonfull Of Sugar - "Ribbon & Bows" and I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday (that I flipped to suit my design).

So, I used the Yummy For Your Tummy Kitchen Tilda stamp and matched it with Websters Pages & Basic Grey PP which reflected that homely cooking feeling I was tring to create and then just created with (some of) "My Favourite Things" - Cooking, Magnolia, PP, green/cream/red colour combo, lace, buttons, anything scalloped and colouring with Prisma and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out .... My only issue is that I didn't use any flowers (which is soooo unlike me lol) because it didn't fit in with what I was trying to create.

I hope you like it .... My hubby told me that he "thinks the card's great but now it's up to the people that matter" lol.

So that's it from me for now .... I'm off to Officeworks to replace a wheel on my new office chair coz it keeps coming off .....

Ciao & see you soon
