A Magnolia fall card.... 2 challenges

Finally, a card that has gone right the first time today.....
I made a couple of cards earlier today that were to say the least challenging, one is on its way to the recipients now, well sat in the post box, and the other is for the Creative Card Crew challenge this week, so be sure to take on a look on Tuesday morning.

Had a flick through the challenges about this week and this card is a combination of 2, the sketch at Sketch & Stamp and the theme of distressing at A Spoon Full of Sugar.Anyone who knows me knows I don't do distressing, well not on my cards anyway! I tried ripping and tearing a piece of card but just didn't like it on my card, it looked messy so I afraid girls this is as distressed as it gets.... I used my distress inks and a Heidi Swapp distressing tool.

My boys are back to school and my daughter starts Uni, I swapped my day off last week for tomorrow, so looking forward to some quiet time! I've got lots of housework to catch up with, you know what its like when the kids have been off and we had the new banisters fitted yesterday, so a bit dusty round here.... Hoping to fit in some crafting, especially as I bought a pack of Jelly Rolls yesterday, material, not sweets, to have a go at some more patchwork.

Had better go and tidy up my craft room before I go off to bed.
Back tomorrow with a card in a tin I made at a workshop yesterday and a picture of the patchwork I made recently.
