Magnolia Challenge

This weeks Magnolia challenge is to Distress Tilda. Have to say I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and found it extremely therapeutic. It's for no-one in particular, nice to be able to make a card just because...lol!!! I've hacked away at the edges of the papers using my metal ruler then inked the edges with gold versa colour ink pad. Papers are K & CO Bailey & McKenna. Tilda and the bench has been coloured using distress inks, mind you, I think Tilda looks as if she is suffering from 'slapped cheek syndrome' did go a bit overboard with colouring her face...hehehe!!! Autumn Leaves 'tickets' sentiment stamps, buttons are Woodware, large eyelets are We are Memory Makers from qvc, string from my kitchen drawer which has had the distress ink treatment, ribbon is from a walkaround store in Cardiff called What!!!, must say they stock a fabby selection of crafting goodies at amazing prices.
Hope everyone is happy and well and looking for to having your kiddies home for SIX weeks.....grrrrrrr.... Yasmin and Georgia took their cards and pressies to school today for their teachers and friends, was quite an emotional time,( for me that is), my daughters seem to be taking it all in their stride. I'm dreading Friday, saying goodbye to everyone.
Thanks for popping by, ttfn xx vicki xx
