Happy Hello

Happy Friday Everyone

Hello and thanks for visiting. I am so excited I have taken the plunge and started my new blog. I kept putting it off thinking it was going to be a lot harder to set up. It was not difficult at all, so many wonderful blog templates available, I would love to thank Megan from Shabby blogs for her totally shabulous templates, they are amazing. I am sure I will be tweaking this site for a little while, so please bear with me.

Hooray,  today I made a card just because, no challenges, just to practice using my much loved Copics and play with the adorable Magnolia Stamps. I purchased some new paper and have been bursting to try it out. I love bright colours as I am sure you can tell and I adore the Cosmo Cricket range of papers.

My very 1st Magnolia Card

I couldn't decide between an A2 size & 6 x 6 card, so I made both.
I gave my friend the A2 size and kept the other as a sample. I secretly could not part with this being my first Tilda card.


COPICS - I took the plunge & purchased these copic markers in August, I kept putting them off thinking another fad, these new markers will probably sit keeping all my other markers company that I have not used for years. Wow, how wrong was I, I love them, they are so addictive, I want more. They take time to learn how to blend but worth it. Of course, I could not stop there, I needed some stamps to colour with and I decided to buy the cute adorable Magnolia stamps.

First time using - Copic Markers, Copic Airbrush, Magnolia Stamps & Flower Soft
