Charming Magnolia..




Hello All , oh my from Ice cream weather to hot porridge weather, having to walk the dog in big wellies I am.... we had another thunder storm early evening last night Hailsones galore and me poor garden brollie has not survived... Oh well not moaning, i was getting too hot, but wouldn't it be nice for somewhere inbetween, but alas here in England its all or nothing!! oh well never mind...

Well today scard is for the Just Magnolia challenge, I don't have many new one, just the watering can, so must remedy that, i don't seem to have any sentiments, mmm deffo got to remdey that one..

anyhoos, I used the rose maganolia, and i have tried the Kim Piggott way , i say tried, I have done this twice the foirst effort was yuk! bigtime....lol i will show you my embarrassing effort, poor little thing looks like she has fallen over in the park, and bruised her face... I have used distressed inks and pads, and have distressed the edges, using Kim's tutorial as a guide, but theres nothing like seeing it in real life which i were lucky enough to do so... This weeks challengeover at Just magnolia is CHARMING! To use charme on your cards... The papers are 7 gypsies...

well i hope you like, warts n all!!


Here is my first attempt, now stop larfing , I can hear ya!!

Ohhee it's rotten ain't it...lol
