We are going Green at MDUC this week

Good morning everyone I am hoping this post finds you well.

This week at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we are going green...That's right we want to recycle! 
I just knew last year that when I received a present from my sister with a tag on it from one of my favourite shops that I would get the chance to reuse it. It has taken a while for the opportunity to arise but now it has I love the transformation. It is pretty basic I must admit but I am really liking clean simplified projects at the moment. 

So here is the tag as I got it:

and here is my tag:

You can see that I also reused some cardboard too. 

I was shuffling through my Magnolia's looking for one to use and then I saw this one. Aww the memories this was about the 3rd Magnolia stamp I ever brought and I have to say I loved bringing her out for a play. 

No I know we have a great sponsor this week so pop over to MDUC and check it out and of course all the other samples of recycling there. 

That's it from me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time

I am so excited to be here tonight to show you my card using one of the fabulous new images from Make it Crafty....I just love this new range of the Theatre Collection and The Band Collection and judging by all the chatter in our DT group so does everyone else!

I used the goreous Soprano Opera Singer, I just love her, and have made a card for my baby sisters birthday. I say baby but she is turning 30! 

Another clean and simple card as I feel that the Soprano Opera Singer just needed to shine! I think the paper itself too is busy too so it did not need a lot embellishments. 

So continue on you way you now need to head over to Ruby

Sealed with a Kiss from Make it Crafty

Good afternoon, today I am here to share with you my latest Make it Crafty card.
This week our challenge was Wonderland and I have to admit that I struggled with it for a while.
 I am not sure if it because I have been sick lately and my brain could not be creative so I opted for an easer option of using one of the gorgeous fairytale images...My toughest decision was which one to use!
I decided to make it really girlie and use my latest colour combo of copics.
Ok enough rambling here it is..

You can see that I have kept my card quite basic and just allowed the gorgeous image to shine.
The papers are also quite busy helping with my decision to go CAS. I am not sure in the end result (I think I don't like the bow) but my 10 year old daughter thinks it is gorgeous so it obviously appeals to the younger mind. 
Make it Crafty Supplies:
Sealed with a kiss digi from the fairytale collection
Dress - BV17, BV13 & BV02, R83, R20 & R00
Hair - E99, YR24, YR20
So that is it for me today. I hope you have enjoyed my card and that I may have inspired you to go use one of these gorgeous Fairytale images. 
Thanks for taking the time to have  a look. Until next time....

Tic-Tac-Toe at Magnolia Down Under Challenges

Good morning everyone....I know it has been a long time between posts but life has been crazy here in the Beekman household.  I can never craft well if I know I have a list f things to do so it was a real pleasure to sit down and make this card as I had free time to do it. 

This week at Magnolia Down Under we have a tic-tac-toe card for your to play along with. So let me share with you the card I have mad........

Sorry photo a little dull....

and here is our tic-tac-toe card

Yep I used the middle line, chipboard, sentiment & 3 or more layers and I may have added a few extra in too!

Dont you  just love the gorgeous chipboard's I have used from Make it Crafty. Boy I love Zoe's chippies they seem to be the first thing I go to for embellishments these days. I just loved the paper too so pretty...

I used the awesome sketch over at The Sketchy Challenges for my card, I love the sketches the ladies but so rarely get  to play along so happy this time I could!
I am also going to enter my card into:
Magnolia-licious Challenges - Spring Blossoms. I have even painted some blooms around Tilda in the grass 
Tilda' Town - F&F and U&E

Now before I really urge you to go over to Magnolia Down Under and check out the amazing creations....Some have even managed a full house, could you do that?! Oh yeah and dont forget to check out our awesome sponsor this week. 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, until next time
