A Little Challenge from Da Boss Lady!

Kellie from the Magnolia Down Under Store is affectionately known by her DT as "Boss Lady" - hmmm, think I started that one - LOL. This week she has set us a little challenge - to use one of our GORGEOUS stamps from the Hoppy Easter Range - AND to use something we don't usually use! I've used Tilda with 3 Flowers here - and as I don't have much need for Easter cards I've shown how versatile she is and used her for a more general card.

I don't use faux stitching very often so I dragged out my white gel pen to fulfil the second part of Da Boss Lady's challenge. Apart from the CS and ribbon everything else was sourced from Magnolia Down Under - including the fabulous personalised stamps which will be available for a limited time only! And don't forget there's gonna be some excitement over at Magnolia Down Under - Kellie has made some changes and I can't wait to share everything with you SOOOON! 
I've used this week's fabulous sketch from Just Christmas and Birthday Cards (#58) - I'm not sure if I'll get it entered over there in time - but the sketch was just what I was looking for.
This week's challenge over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is to use stitching - real or faux - in your creation! For someone who doesn't use much stitching I've now done a card using BOTH types - LOL.

Have a GREAT week - with lots of time for fun!
