Just Magnolia - Mina's Sketch

Now, I wish I could say I was happy with my attempt at the Just Magnolia challenge this week, but I'm not.  The first effort ended up in the bin and this second try is bordering on heading that way too!  Sorry Mina for not doing justice to your sketch hun.

And Mr Blogger is driving me nuts with not being able to place photos in the right slot!  He keeps putting them at the top of the post - grrrrrrrr.  Anyway, here is my card....

My favourite sitting Tilda, coloured with Copics, MME papers, peel-off borders from stash, delicious raindrop gems found in stash but bought in Lakeland when they used to do craft stuff.

And I've received an award!  From Linda and from Sarah ...... thanks guys

I have to tell you six statements about me, only one of which is true, and you have to guess which one it is.  Then I pass this on to six blogging buddies.  Ok, here are the facts ma'am

1.  I have written a novel
2.  I show hubby every new craft item
3.  I have raced in saloon cars at Brands Hatch and won
4.  I love spinach
5.  My dream holiday would be extreme sports in New Zealand
6.  I support Norwich City Football Club

So, which one is true?  And the six blogging buddies I will pass this on to are Marcea, Uma, Mandy, Delphine, Cynthia and Sarah.

Now then, I don't know if it's that time of year or if I need to give myself a kick-up-the-crafty-bum but I have noticed that visitor/comment numbers have really dropped off over the last month (I have checked back to make sure I haven't said anything offensive).   I know I've not been able to comment as much as I feel I should do lately but I do try to keep up with you all as best as I can.  Well, as I'm now not that far short of 30,000 hits I shall be offering a little sweet stuff fairly soon as a thank you to my stalwart faithfuls who keep on hanging in there with me so do keep an eye out over the next couple of weeks for that.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Sweet card hun, love the colours and those fab gems! I'm rubbish at commenting at the moment and definitely don't get as many comments as I do when I'm leaving them for everyone. Not enough hours in the days unfortunately! Lisa x

Uma said...

lovely card, do you remember the days when you didn't like Tilda 'cos she had no mouth?

maybe no 3 cos it's so specific. no 4 could be true as I love spinach. As for extreme sports! not with your knees hunny!

thats not a thing wrong with it Squirrel and you have used my sketch perfectly...comments and numbers go up and down vastly and it just depends on weather, how busy crafters are or if they are having the duldrums like we all do...when I get them I give myself a good crafting shake try something totally different have a clean up of my crafting stuff and find loads I had forgotten I had...duldrums sorted lol

Fabulous card Squirrel and great blog hop, having a coffee and taking my time.

I do not hang a stocking anymore, we are an older family so as presents arrive they go under the tree and on xmas morning we sit around the tree and open together (the three of us)
Hugs Kate xx
