A waiting kind of day....

Today my Mam has been in hospital having an operation so I've been waiting all day to get the call to go and collect her and bring her home. It has felt very odd not to have her here, knowing what was happening to her. Pleased to say though, that she's back home now, very sore but back where she belongs :)
So, what to do whilst waiting? Make cards of course!!
First up is a card made for this weeks CPS sketch challenge:

I turned the sketch on its end and then moved the stripes from the top to the bottom. The curve was too much like a hill not to make it green!

(The Shabby Princess papers, house and fence doodles by Kate Hadfield)

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!

(The Shabby Princess and Pink Petticoat papers, Doodles by Kate Hadfield, letters by the Shabby Princess)

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
