the black bin bags are out - Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge week 101 Bevs sketch

Good morning everyone I hope the sun shining for you today we had a wonderful sunny afternoon yesterday but the thing with the sun is it shows all the dust so I had to do a bit of a spring clean, but I went three times to do my craft room and then changed my mind because I knew if I went in nothing more would be done...so the house is spick and span and my craft room looks like a mini explosion has gone off in it, well maybe not so mini lol...that's next to do I think...oh by the way I forgot to put the winner of my candy one didn't I so I will draw it this afternoon and put it up later, oh and I have Bunny Zoe's candy for you this weekend and you never know what more there will be...I have candy to give away while I'm on holiday too so keep an eye out for all the goodies to come...right enough blathering Mina, onto my card for today which is for our new challenge over at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar challenge which this week is a sketch by our super talented Bev...I used this beautiful Tilda with Hawaii flower for mine, shes coloured with distress inks and I glittered the butterflies, I teamed them up with these amazing papers from the Crate Paper 6x6 Portrait paper pad, aren't those colours just wow...the sentiment is from the Whimsy treasured moments tickets set, the papers and stamps are all from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I added some of the lush seam binding from The Ribbon girl and some more of that beautiful pleated lace I bought from Crafters & Co...Im entering this for the Cute Card Thursday Totally Tropical challenge...when you have time pop on over to Just Magnolia and have a look at the amazing DT work from our wonderful team and the new DT members announcement is there too...right I'm off with a black bin bag and some boxes to tidy my craft room wish me luck and if you don't hear from me in a week send a rescue team...have a brilliant day everyone

Oh I am so thick sometimes Mina! I kept looking at Tilda and thinking, that's not a flower, it's a butterfly, so why've they called it Tilda With Hawaii Flower ..... then the very large penny dropped, d'oh! Anyhoo, it's sooooooo pretty, love it to bits. Hugs, Sxx

Hi Mina, such a gorgeous card today, I love the pretty colours and that Tilda is so pretty too. I really wish they'd give her a mouth and nose, her feet are amazingly cute!
Anyway thank you for your kind comments, I'm amazed with all you have to do that you could remember about my son, you're a real sweetie. I've still got my fingers crossed and toes and anything else that comes to hand he! he! he! :0) xxx

Liebe Mina,
vielen Dank für Deine lieben Geburtstagswünsche. Ich habe mich sehr darüber gefreut!!
Deine Karte ist ganz wundervoll. Das Blütenmeer rund um das toll colorierte Motiv ist herrlich! Und der Schmetterling mit dem Glitter wirkt sehr schön!
Mina, bereitet es Dir nicht zu viele Schwierigkeiten mein Deutsch zu verstehen? Aber mein Englisch ist nicht so gut und ich könnte Dir nur sehr eingeschränkt schreiben! Aber wenn Englisch Dir lieber wäre, versuche ich es gerne!

Ich bin die nächsten 4 Tage in Hamburg, deswegen kann ich leider in der Zeit Deinen Blog nicht besuchen! Sobald ich wieder zuhause bin, bestaune ich Deine neuen Werke!
Ich wünsche Dir ein schönes Wochenende und grüße Dich ganz herzlich!
Hugs Uschi
