Marvelous Magnolia ~ Punch a Bunch

Oh wow, I can't believe we're already at the end of February...
...and it's time again for another challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia.

This week we want you to....

(use a punch somewhere on your card)

I have used a Martha Stewart, butterfly punch.
I'm not sure if this has been discontinued as I can't find it anywhere to link it.

We have a fantastic sponsor this week
I hope you can join us.

LOTV's birthday celebrations

Lili of the valley are nearly 9!!!!
"We were planning to do a big candy giveaway when we got to 3000 blog followers …it would be lovely if we could get it to coincide with our 9th birthday celebrations on March 2nd.

We’re nearly there, so when you visit make sure that you are a follower of our blog (LOTV Inspiration Blog) …and if you’re not then be sure to click the button and join us!

Lucy is storming ahead with her Facebook followers at the moment and she was hoping to get to 5000! It's quite a big ask but if we could manage it by our birthday weekend that would be AMAZING!

Tell all your friends ...and we'll make sure that there are some lovely prizes up for grabs!"
So how wonderful is that?!!  Hope you'll join in with us!  :)

Flower Arranging

Good morning,
Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
It's been fairly bright here.

I have an LOTV card to share today.

 I have used:
Papers are LOTV ~ Country Lady

Just a quick photo of my new die storage. Darren put it up yesterday.
It's a pole from an old wardrobe, some split rings and some little S hooks.
I have used clips on my CD sleeves & then hung them on the hooks. 
I haven't completely organised it yet. I have all my flowers in one sleeve, butterflies in another etc.
I can't decide whether just to put them in all the sets they originally came in.
  Thanks for popping by & for the lovely comments you leave me.
Sorry I don't always get around to leaving them back, 
but I do visit and see all your gorgeous cards

Tilda with Heart Arrows

Hope you are all well, 
I'm looking forward to having Mackenzie at home next week.
I made her & Darren a card for Valentines LOL
Any excuse to try & getting my mojo back !!!

I'd been sitting looking at my craft desk for the best part of this week, 
Just couldn't find any creativity at all.
Think it's coming back to me LOL.

 The GORGEOUS papers are a new paper set out from 
Raspberry road, called Heart Whispers ~ they're DELISH !!!
I'd seen the doohickey wings, but just didn't think I'd have much NEED them, 
but saw them on Debbie's blog and loved them. So treated myself.
You can never have too many dies LOL!!!!
This gorgeous butterfly came off Ebay, and at only 99p + 85p for postage for 20 I couldn't resist.
Again I have dyed my own ribbon, another Ebay purchase!

Woof You xXx

Hiya, hope you are all well.
It's a miserable, wet day here in Spalding.
Darren & Mac are full of cold, and to top it off....
I woke up with a sore throat and cough, so we're a happy ole bunch LOL.
I've sent Darren off to the shops for some Medised for Mac, & 
it's like hunting for a needle in a haystack, nowhere seems to do it anymore!

On a cheerier note, I have an LOTV card to share.
Not much time for crafting so this was one for a recent magazine.

I have used :
Raspberry Road ~ Bountiful ~ 50% Feb 8th ~ 14th

Thank you so much for popping by
