We are all back safe and sound, however things on our return were a little stressful. It has taken me a few days to settle in and put my trust in God. I will continue to lift my friends and family in prayer to the Lord who has the power to heal. I had made this card just before going on holidays. I think it is such a cut stamp set. Great for kids and babies. I hope you enjoy it. This stamp set is also the Elite Stampers challenge set for the month. If you would like to see more cards utilizing this set pop over here

Take care and have a good week

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #21

Wow what a month. It has flown by. Today is about catching my breath and creating. Father's day is next week so must get organised. I love the Magnolia stamps and I must admit that Tilda is my favourite. So I pulled her out and had a play. The Challenge at Magnolia Down Under was a little different to usual. You had to create a card using, 1 flower, 2 ribbons, 3 brads and 4 papers at a minimum. I have never created in a challenge like this before. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a great day until we meet again.
