Just Magnolia

A quick post from me tonight as Chiara is driving me up the wall just now lol. She is a real Mummy's girl and I don't get a minute's peace from her, but saying that I still love her to bits and would be lost without her moaning at me all the time lol.
I did get a card done for the Just Magnolia challenge though. This week it's a great sketch from Rach.



I have mirrored the sketch not because I was trying to be clever but because my card was the wrong way round when I stuck the blue strip on so I just went with it lol.
I have used a piece of K&Co paper I have had for about a year and never really liked it but I picked it up today and just had to use it. The other paper is from the Laura Ashley traditional pack. I coloured Tilda with my Copics and added some Stickles to her wings. Not the kind of colours I would of normally chose to use on her but it was the closest Copic colours I had to match the papers. Now she is done, I kinda like it though. But my Daughter Rhianna told me it was rubbish and that she looked like a boy! That's what I get for asking a 5 year old what she thinks lol.
I have used one of my sentiment stamps that I got today from Stampin Up. I didn't have any sentiment stamps that said more than happy birthday or thank you etc so when I saw these in the SU! catalogue, I knew I just had to get them :)
I'm off now to get this little monster, I mean my beautiful charming little girl to her bed!

Recipe:
Papers K&Co and Laura Ashley traditional
Image: Tilda which was semt to me by the lovely Heather (Rica) thanks you hunnie xx
Sentiment: Stampin UP! Circle of friendship set
