wwwooohhhhoooo its Friday - Just Magnolia week 65-Vintage + Sketch and stash challenge 40

Good morning everyone did you all have a great shake your booty Thursday lol...have you got any fabby planned for the weekend?...my poor husband has to work bless him so he wont be home until Saturday evening :-( which means nothing special planned for us...when you only see each other at weekends they seem to get gobbled up in the ordinary everyday things that you normally do during the week...but we will be planning our hols for September so we get to spend a whole two weeks together...now today is Friday so of course that means its time for a new Just Magnolia challenge and its a brill one this week, but then aren't they all lol, its Vintage...I used this fabulous little Tilda but haven't a clue what shes called I'm afraid...oops...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her fabulous nightie and headband...I used the gorgeous simple sketch over at Sketch and Stamp challenge for my card, my stash is this stunning paper from Graphic45...would you believe this is from their Christmas past range, don't you love papers that can be used anytime not just for a certain season...this one is called Deck the Halls...I finished with some stunning pearl entwined mesh ribbon and a bow wrapped with stringed pearls, then added a few teeny roses...I hope you like it and when you have time don't forget to nip over to Just Magnolia and see the rest of the team lush work...have a fab Friday everyone
