Cute Card Thursday Double Bill!


I did try and be organised before I went away to Holland, and get my CCT cards done well in advance and up.. ready for each Thursday.. but it just didn’t happen.

So.. I have completed this card to include both Cute Card Thursday challenges that I’ve missed and they were ‘Fairy’s and Angels’ from last week.. This week’s challenge is ‘Red and Green’

I just had to use these fabby new Magnolia stamps, they are just the cutest!!!  The Tilda I received before I went away and the large tree was snapped up at the KreaDoe show.. Tilda had been masked before I stamped the tree.. saved me a whole load of cutting.

For my card I have used:

  • Stamp: Magnolia large Tree and Tilda hanging ornament
  • Medium: Ranger Distress Ink in Tattered Rose, Peeled Paint, Brick Red, Aged Mahogany, Antique Linnen, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo.
  • Sakura Clear Glitter pen.
  • Papers: ‘I Wish’  Stampin’ Up! Scrapbook set.
  • Embellishments: Ribbon, handmade pin and bling dots.

Again sorry girls for my late submission.. Promise I’ll be good from now on 😉


Yesterday I went to the NEC to attend the HobbyCraft show.. it sure was fun, but I think I’ve had a case of ‘Stash Overload’ [if there is such a thing!] of late, so I haven’t bought alot.. just some bits and bobs.

My friend Sonia happened to be there *waves* and I got to meet Dawney (from Papertake Weekly DT) and her daughter who came all the way from Cheshire to visit the show!

It was great to put a face to a name, and Dawney.. hope you haven’t gone over budget??!! lol



Also wanted to show off this lovely award I’ve been given by Tracey, Heather and Debbie

I love it and thank you sooo much for thinking of me 🙂


I Love Saturday night telly with Strictly come Dancing, X-Factor and all the extra shows.. so I’m settling down for that tonight, nice and cosy on the settee with a whole bunch of images ready to colour.


Have a great evening all,

    This is a super stunning card and I just love the colours and image. Awesome colouring as well – you are sooo talented Marlene!!!

    It was fabulous meeting up and also nice to put a face to the name. Glad I don’t look like my blog pic lol xxxx We didn’t go too mad to be honest. Following on from our bead conversation, we did go and put a loads of beads etc in a basket on one of the stalls then got to the till and asked for some advice on what we had bought, only to be told by the bloke on the till that he didn’t have the first clue what it was all about!! As he was a rather dishy looking guy, we assumed that he was there only as eye candy for us girls!!! So we ended up putting it all back again and will get a book on it first and read up lol xxx. We went into the Crafts for Christmas bit and had had hot mulled wine and mince pies later on – very delish xx. All in all we had a great day and Nikkie really enjoyed it – even though she only went to keep me company, bless her. We got stuck in a horrendous jam on the way home and it took forever but when we finally got in, there was my new Magnolia set waiting for me :))) I was a very happy bunny I can tell you xxxx
