Been awile ... again ... JUST MAGNOLIA & MAGNOLIA DOWN UNDER

Hi there

Well what sparked my interest in blogging today is the JUST MAGNOLIA blog, I love anything Magnolia, and who doesn't really :)

I'm entering this week's challenge at JUST MAGNOLIA - Bev's Sketch .. .. ..
and MAGNOLIA DOWN UNDER - Magnolia Down Under Challenge #87

I've made the below card for a friend of my husband's whose just had to make the very hard decision of having her beloved cat put to sleep. She had the vet come to her home and put him down so he could go peacefully and in his own surroundings, what a lovely thing to do.

Anyway this is a "Sorry" card - sorry for your loss.

I coloured in Magnolia with copics - oranges and purples, one of my fave combos.

After spending alot of time colouring her in I then put her through my cuttlebug using my circle spellbinder (trying to remember off the top of my head some instructions Debbie had sent me), I did something around the wrong way and cut off the top and bottom of her, so pieced back together. (I can see clearly, only because I know it's there!!!) Hopefully it's not TOOOO noticeable :( .. .. I just didn't want to see it go to waste....

Here she is ...

That's all for now :)




  1. You know she is utterly adorable don't you!
    I just love love love your talent - wish I had half that amount myself . . . in the mean time I sew .. .. ..

  2. Hey Dee - you know nobody would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it - LOL. Fabulous card - and there are no mistakes in papercrafting - just opportunities!!!!
    Love the reason behind this too - I'm sure your friend will appreciate the thought!

  3. PS - you forgot to slide the nestie UNDER the parts you wanted left on - with the cutting edge DOWN! I've done it too - LOL

  4. Thanks Debbie, I'll try remember for next time !! :)
