no peeking...

Wow...another sunny beautiful day here in Ontario! I love it!
A new challenge for Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog. The challenge is to follow a sketch from Shell Barnard. I tell ya..I love sketches...it really does the thinking for me! Kellie has sponsored this challenge this week and is offering a $10.00 Gift Voucher to spend in her newly opened Magnolia Only Store!

I went to a special blog...from my craft room... and fell in love with her Joy fold card! So inspired was I that I thought I would try my hand at it! Mind you...I don't have the awesome talent she has but I can always strive to try!

Bottom right is the sketch we were to follow:

Stamps: Magnolia
Punches: Martha Stewarts
Hope you are enjoying really awesome weather were you are!

  5. Oh my, Christine, this is awesome! What a darling image and idea for a card, and the whole card is a present in itself. Tilda looks so cute, and your DP's are perfect. So glad you've got sunny weather. That's a far cry from our tropical storm. We faired very well, though, so no complaints.

Please send some of your sunshine over to us - its been grey and damp here for a few days now. I haven't forgotten about your distress ink questions - I'll email you tomorrow as my husband is nagging me to get off the computer!
