Quick post

As I've got Kay and Tegan coming soon so I'll get going lol,

I've seen some gorgeous cards based on a tag lately and fancied having a go, so I made a template and based my design on Magnolia down under who want a sentiment as a focal point, 
I used a scroll design I have on a craft CD then got the text off a free web site for verses  (and saw this one which I couldn't resist because I know some one who will love it lol) and layered it on top to size, printed it off and added a little card behind to keep the colour scheme in,

I have kept the colours similar to the scroll  and have coloured my images with my copics,


My card stock edge is distressed with my distress tool, then coated with white acrylic paint, as is the fence, the snow is liqiud applique, the button and flowers have been grunged with White crackle paint,

challenges
Tibroscrapmania ~ Monochrome
Magnolia lictious highlites ~ photo inspitation
The pretty little ribbon shop ~ buttons and bows
Simply Magnolia ~ anything goes
Sunday's with Chrissy ~ non traditional Christmas

well best be off, not my usual waffle, phew are you glad he he,
