Mega Magnolias and Sugar Nellies

Well, as I am going back to the physio tomorrow I am not sure what state I will be in!!! So I thought I would craft like mad tonight - so out came my magnolia and sugar nellie stamps to make a very special card for a friend to give to her daughter (who is one of the nicest 21 years olds you could meet).

This is an A4 sized card (well I needed room to fit it all on) and uses Christina Cole paper as a backing, Lakeland's chipboard letters which I coloured with chalk inks and embossed with sparkly clear embossing powders and various magnolia stamps coloured with prismas and blended with sansador to match. I am really really pleased with the result and I have to ask you to trust me when I say it looks better in real life (I can't take photo's to save my life).

So as it's 1.40am and I have tidied up so think it is probably time to go to bed but wanted to add this to my blog before I tuck myself up. It's funny, but having completed something like this gives me such a sense of satisfaction and satisfies my need to craft regularly. Having been very involved with my scrapbooking over the past few weeks, it has set me back on the road to my card making and I now just have to find the correct balance between making my cards for orders and my scrapbooking for fun!!
