OMG Why do my cards all take me......

.... all blinkin' day to do?!?!?!
I started this at about 1pm it's finally finished at 9.15pm!!! But you know what I actually like it (good job isn't it or it'd be 8 odd hours wasted!!!) I took my inspiration from the MEGA talented Janiel, I dream about making cards 1/2 as good as hers!!!

My card stock is from the Paper Mill, paper is Papermania Henbury Lane, Magnolia stamps Butterfly Background & Sitting Tilda with Tulips, Papaermania greeting, plaian & scalloped circle nesties, ribbon from my stash, butterfly charm from the works, Nellie branch punch & flowers from my stash too!! Oh & it goes without saying I have Diamond stickles on my card too!!!

As I've used 2 images on my card I'm entering it into the Just Magnolia challenge as their theme this week it takes 2, 2 Magnolia's MUST be used!!

I'm off to catch the end of the end of Marco's Kitchen Burnout.... not as good as Goron but there's nowt else on lol, hmmmm maybe time for anotehr Frasier-a-thon!!! See you tomorrow!! xxx

Lol Caroline i think you sit hugging tilda but do know exactly what you mean i am the same. Looking at your card i would say with all the detail and design elements it isnt surprising well worth the effort and oh i dream to be half as good as janny too.

I just have to laugh Caroline, because if I could make a card in just one day I'd be thrilled. Most of mine take me minimum of two! This is just delightful and I love the variation of dp you used. Your coloring is really pretty and I love how you did the background stamp! Gorgeous...
Blessings,
Barb
