Just Magnolia

The challenge on Just Magnolia is to use acetate. When I was routing around for some DP last night I found this preprinted acetate and thought it would be ideal for a card. The black pattern is printed onto the acetate I have added some gems on the outside and a rub on greeting. The rest of the card is made from PTI papers with a Tilda image (won from Susie Sugar). I put a strip of PTI punched with my new MS punch down the inside of the card. The last view shows the back of the card.
I'm also entering it into White and bright at Papertake challenge and Cute Card Thursday where you can do "Whateva".
I had some goodies arrive this morning - the postman actually said when I opened the door to him "more supplies for you" - now how does he know!!!!
The first picture shows the surprise goodies I won in the Bugaboo challenge a couple of weeks ago-I was just about to order some flowers so that has saved me some money (well for about the next 20 minutes LOL!).
The next picture is my order from Imag-e-nation crafts. These Tapestry stamps are half price at the moment. I have always wanted to have a go with them but thought they were a bit pricey, so of course I jumped at the chance for half price.

Aren't images without faces kinda spooky for a little girls card? What happened to her nose? Can she breathe??? I can hear my little girls comments now!

Ooh, I LOVE Tapestry Stamps, have never bought any though, I really don't need another addiction! Where's your WOYWW this week? Sounds like you got a great deal on the American Crafts stamps. Love your creations, how funny that the postie knows what he's bringing you!

what a beautiful project Lynn - that acetate is lovely - MCS has a pattern on their silhouettes collection just like that so i thought you'd printed it yourself from that. Love the pink and white DP too.

Hope you are well

Oh dear Lin, if only Rozzaree had a blog or at least one we could comment on!! It's sad that some people are only happy being unhappy
