Diving Tilda & some exciting news

Hello, It seems ages since my last post.
I have a few images coloured and ready to make into cards,
but I didn't do much crafting in the last week of the hols.

Mac has now gone back to school, although for some reason, with great reluctance.
Today's the first day we've had no tears.

Anyway she's 10 next week, and she's having a swimming party tomorrow 
(hopefully it won't get cancelled this year)

I've made her a card to give her tomorrow & one for on her actual birthday ~ which I'll share later.

Here's her card for tomorrow, quite plain for me.
I've used:
Magnolia ~ Diving Tilda 
Raspberry road ~ Denim & Diamonds
Marianne ~ Chinese Rose
Tim Holtz ~ Hardware Findings & DIs
Pearls from stash

I also have some awesome news.

The lovely Bev emailed me last weekend and asked me if
 I'd like to join them over at Just Magnolia
Well it took me all of 2.3 seconds to make my decision LOL.
So I start next Friday & I can't wait!

Thanks for looking & your gorgeous comments, they really do mean a lot to me.

Planetsusie said...

All of 23 seconds - lol! - Well done Fleur you deserve it. I love this card - she is so cute and chubby. I also love your layers and - perhaps it is because (as you said) it is quite plain for you - it is nice, for me at least, to be able to see the layers more. I think it is a brilliant design and you have used brilliant colours again!!!

Hugs to you Sue P xxx

Hi Fleur. One of the good things about being AWOL from commenting for awhile is that I got to come back and spend half an hour on your blog looking at your fabulous creations.

A cup of tea, a piece of chocolate and your blog and I am in heaven. Thanks so much for your lovely lovely cards. hugs x

PS: I fibbed about the chocolate. It was actually 6 pieces :)

Hi Fleur

Sorry I have been a bit of a stranger here .. .. life has been very manic for the last few months .. .. but now I am getting a little bit of time here and there to catch up with blogland.

Thank you for the comments you have left me.

I have been looking back over your posts and you have been posting some amazing work. You always manage to fit in such a lot of detail without everything looking crowded. Must be something to do with your great eye for colour.

Many congratulations on your news .. .. I can tell how excited you are. Have fun!

I hope that Mackenzie settles down at school soon. It is always worrying when they are reluctant to go .. .. I had one that hated every day he went .. .. and then to our surprise once he could leave he decided to stay in education and go to college and is now working in student support there.

Have a good Sunday.

Love Jules xx

Marjorie said...

wWhat a beautiful card for your beautiful daughetr Fleur.
Hope she has a fun day and that she settles back into the routine of school soon. Hugs Marjorie.
......Oh nearly forgot, congrats to you, well done.
I love your cards, they are such an inspiration for me. x x
