Magnolia Card..........

Well its taken me well over a week to make this card but here I am at long last and with a card that I am very happy with.
I've a draw of Magnolia stamps that never see daylight. I've been having a good sort out in my craftroom and have added lots on ebay and still loads more to go on if anyones interested.
I went totally OTT with this card and love the final result. Tildas been coloured with Copics and Prismas and dotted around her with a White Gel Pen. The papers are Magnolia, Dies Galore including my TH Weathered Clock, a big favourite right now. Found all my flowersoft in a cupboard so have added to the Magnolia Fence along with lots of MS Punched Butterflies. Cheesecloth, Stickles and a Viva Pearl Pen for a touch of detail and a scrummy piece of lace to.
Forgot to say the tag on the left is removal so you can always add a message there to and the fence has been arched giving a bit of dimension.

This is the inside. Again Magnolia Papers, Flowers, Punched Butterfly, MS Border Punch backed onto Bazzill Cardstock.

Look What I Got Today!

Been looking at this Copic Storage Bag for a while and yesterday I caved, though  I dont regret it for one moment. I had all my copics (and theres over 300) in 2 Clear Storage Boxes and a draw.

Says it stores 380 bet I think I could sqeeze a few more. Wendy at The Glitterpot gave a fab service. Ordered yesterday and received by courier this morning.

Was going to sort the kids rooms before Jessica gets back from her trip to Budapest and Daniel back from Boarding School today, but think I will label all my Ciao's so I can see them all clearly, then maybe have a colouring session.

Back soon and I've added more bits to my Ebay Store. The craftroom cleanup continues!
