I hope you have had a wonderful weekend so far,
lots of relaxing and crafting I hope!!
It is time for another challenge at
Magnolia Down Under
and this week we challenge you to use
real or faux or even paper
on your creations!!
There's a delish prize lined up from
be sure to stop by and see what the
impressively fabulous design team girlies have crafted,
and then get to work on your stitchy Maggie project.
So those who regularly read the smut I push off as blogging know that my sewing machine and I are having a fight. It's nothing too severe, she will get over it if I listen to her needs, show a little sensitivity, maybe buy her some new thread or a fancy cover.... Just in time for the stitching challenge!! I keep breaking the needles, think the tension is off or something, I'll be trying again, but she is still mad so she might continue on with the needle breaking bullspit. I guess what I am trying to say is that I used faux stitching on my project, with protest.
I have coloured this lovely Maggie, kindly stamped for me by The Fabulous Sue Drees, with distress inks and Stickles, the pot that Tilda is sitting on is a built-up Penny Black image, I masked off several different PB stamps to arrive at that pot, as well as a Magnolia fence from the Shabby Chic collection. The checkered paper is K & Co. and the floral is Prima. I've folded some doilies to act as borders for my image and sentiment, sentiment is computer-generated, Blackadder font, my fave!! I took inspiration from Linda The Funkie Junkie and had a go with a button, somehow running lace through it makes it okay, buttons can be fab, oh yes, they can be fab!! Thanks for the inspiration Linda!!
Some of you will notice that my project is a little different than what was posted at MDUC. Dear Tab at 7 Kids College Fund sent out my emergency Maggie order of a couple older Easter images to pass the time while I anxiously wait for the new release..... These little chicks came this afternoon so I got to work completing my project, thanks Tab!! A lot of my cards turn into easle cards I just never update the post.
Sooo onto challlenges:
Fussy and Fancy: Easter
Just Magnolia: Sketch
more to come but my ass is sore from all this sitting, will finish this up in a bit!! Thanks for coming by and visiting, I hope your weekend is going wonderfully!!
