Whoopsie!! ....What day is it??

Well you could say better late than never?!?!
Sorry lovely peeps totally forgot what day it was yesterday, really been feeling off my game lately! Just everything seems to happen at once doesn't it?
Never mind I am here today with this fortnights Simply Magnolia challenge which is:
Favourite or newest Tilda!
I have used Prima Ballerina Tilda, I love all the ballerina Tilda's ... but is it just me or is there somthing just slightly "off" about her head? Anyway I still love her, I have coloured her with my copics, the papers are Maja, the beautiful lace is from the ribbon girl, flowers and metal corner are from WOC and the gems and ribbon are from my stash. 
The challenges I would like to enter are:
Tilda's Town - anything goes
7 kids challenge - anything goes
Magnolia Down under - anything goes
Charisma cardz - anything goes
Time for magnolia - anything goes
Love to you all

A sad goodbye to Basic Grey Challenge!

Hi Peeps!
Just a quickie today as I have the flu...... aahhhh!! Lol!
Well it has to be said I have put off writing this post! It is with a very heavy heart I have to say this will be the last challenge from Basic grey challenges!  I would love to thank all the lovely girlies who have been my team mates over the years! I have to say it has been an honour and a pleasure to work with each and every one of you! Basic grey was my very first design team and I have been lucky enough to be a member for almost 3 years!

Anything Goes!
Yes I know Figgy Pudding papers again! I just love them!!! I have coloured Tilda with my Copics, the papers are of course Figgy pudding, just such great colours! and the gems doily and ribbon are from my stash!
On a happier note I have had a wee bit of a lucky streak! I won the ribbon girl magnolia only challenge last month and not only did I win a fantastic token from the ribbon girl.. thank you Mary! but imagine my surprise when my prize from magnolia arrived and I expected a stamp and recieved this parcel!

show the way Tilda for Simply Magnolia

Woo Hoo December the 1st!!

Well this Fortnight over at Simply Magnolia we have a lovely new challenge for you:
Vintage Blue white and Brown Christmas!
I always struggle to photograph blue and brown, it looks so much nicer in real life!
