Just Magnolia Week 8

This weeks Just Magnolia challenge is the most fabulous sketch designed by Rach, its most definately one that i shall be using again and again no doubt. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card which has lifted me no end after the most crappiest week.
The sponsor for this week is SimonSaysStamp.

This is another card for our little Rylee pants ... as we call him lol!
CS ~ Stash
DP's ~ Shabby Princess free download
Stitching ~ Sewing Machine
Image ~ Magnolia, Edwin from the Spring Stamp Club Collection .... he's just has to be my favourite Magnolia stamp at the minute ... I have a couple of the Spring collection i haven't even used yet ... how bad is that? Anyway, he's been coloured with Whisper Strokes.
Butterflies ~ Magnolia stamps again from the Spring collection, stamped on to a scrap piece of laminated pouch that i found lying around and coloured with Sakura Glaze pens.
Ribbon ~ Stash

The inside has been decorated with left over paper and a couple of butterfly stickers that i had in a RAK that the lovely Linda sent me .... thanks honey x.

We had a letter from our insurance company today saying that Arriva bus company have no records of an incident! What a surprise ... but very odd since they called to arrange inspection of our car by one of their assessors on Wednesday!

Also, I think things are looking up in some respects for my sister and at least one of her children ... the angel! Beth was persuaded to come home early last night and have a chat with her Mum about her recent behaviour. I think they managed to sort quite a bit out, but only time will tell ... i think she's walking a very fine line. And low and behold the little treasure that is Declan, actually asked him Mum to lend him some money this morning ..... roflmao ... needless to say she said NO! ... the cheek of kids eh? But 10 out of 10 trying ... bless him!
