I cut the houses and picket fence on my robo and whilst it was chugging away I went blog browsing and came across Louly's blog - wouldn't you know she had a similar idea to me!
Next up is another card that uses Kate's doodles, I love that train! It was nice to make a card that had no reason other than because I wanted to make it!
As I was waiting and crafting and then waiting some more I visited some of my blog favourites and found this wonderful party set at Cindy's blog. So then I waited whilst buying up scrummy digi kits from Dani Mogstad Designs and making this super funky card and tag - you can't see from the photographs but the card is made of lots of layers but it was actually raining whilst I took these photographs so I wasn't going to hang around getting wet!
(Dani Mogstad and Pink Petticoat papers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, bookplate cut with sizzix die, CK Tailor Sloppy font, MAMBI alphabet stickers, Heidi Swapp chipboard star, tag cut with sizzix die)
A few people have asked where I got my Magnolia stamps from. I bought them direct from Magnolia Designs, I use Derwent watercolour pencils to colour them and Alex asked what the pink papers were that I've used. I use lots of pink Alex :) and most of the papers on my Magnolia cards are from The Shabby Princess

I've also been making some more cards using my lovely Magnolia stamps (I'm waiting on another delivery of these :) )

I am excitedly awaiting the arrival of my first GoGoGreetings kit as well as more stash deliveries - I had an email from Jill at AMLT to say that my orders from this week had been dispatched so I'll be watching for the postman next week.
There is a Betty's Teashop at the garden and as we left we spotted this little fellow - isn't he sweet!
Sadly though, he was just too tasty!!!!!!!!!
On the way to Harrogate we stopped off for a snack, drink and toilet stop and look what I bought in BHS of all places.
I have always wanted a picnic basket and this is just perfect - white wicker with pale pink polka dot lining and pink and white accessories.
SB and Percy just had to have an adventure in it too, they think it's their own personal carriage!
The squirrel has been back in our garden too. If anyone knows anything about squirrels could you comment on whether our little visitor is a red squirrel or a grey squirrel. He certainly not the same colour as the grey squirrels in the park who are quite dull and definitely grey, ours seems to have a ginger look to him, especially when the sun shines on him. He was rather naughty this time and he managed to knock the birds nut box off the bird table. I might have egged him on mind by sprinkling some nuts on the grass!

Friday morning and the sun is shining, the birds are tweeting and that squirrel has eaten all the nuts!...

It's silly time in the middle of the night and I wanted to make a card when I should have been tidying up, really naff photographs because it's dark outside - ha! so sorry about that, it's for Monica's challenge.

Yesterday I had a delivery of Magnolia stamps, so today I've been playing. I love these stamps so much, they are absolutely gorgeous and I can foresee more purchases in the very near future. This weeks challenge over at DCM is to use frills on a card. I'm not really a frilly person but I do love these sweet Doodlebug frills.
