the case of the magic pie - Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge-My sketch + City Crafter challenge

Good morning all, well we decided instead of going to the Supermarket then for coffee we would go later and out to dinner...so my Dad and I headed to the restaurant and I ordered chicken and mushroom pie, it came and we were tucking in when it suddenly dawned on me that my chicken pie was beef and mushroom...the waiter came over to ask if all was well and I said delicious but my pie seems to be magic its turned into beef on its way from the Kitchen, then the waiter and my Dad had me almost convinced that I had ordered beef until he checked and it was chicken...but hey ho it was delicious anyway...I will defo go back there though as I like the idea of getting pot luck instead of what you order lol...right onto my card for today which is for our new challenge over at Just Magnolia and this week is a sketch by little old me so I want to see you all join in...it freaks me out when I do a sketch as I dread that nobody will like it and wont join in...I used this stunning Tilda with Curls from the Magnolia Wedding collection from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I masked the image and stamped the Magnolia frilled heart stamp behind her too, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her wings. The amazing papers is more of the Graphic45 Once upon a Springtime collection and is called Butterfly Kisses, lush colour isn't it...the seam binding and pins are from The Ribbon Girl and I finished with some Anitas glittery butterflies and a ceramic sentiment...I'm entering this for the City Crafter challenge which is all that glitters...when you have time pop on over to Just Magnolia and have a look at our super talented DT's amazing cards...well I don't think I'm doing anything today so might finally get a chance to catch up with some DT commenting have a brilliant day everyone
