 I have used two Magnolia Doohickey dies for the tags !! to put the card out ! I have used two Magnolia stamps from the collection ! I used pencils and a touch of glamour dust glitter !

This is Tilda catching stars which I have cut and put on top of some cheesecloth !! on the envelope part

This is inside of the card and it's Tilda's Princes Horse ! I thought it would be cool to have a pink saddle !

I have made a tiny criss cross card for the front which you can take the card out of too ! So cute !

I have used the Magnolia Doohickey dragon fly with more of these gorgeous papers from Glitz called pretty in pink .!!

I made this flower from cheesecloth and added tiny roses and hearts that were left over from using the Magnolia Heart lace Doohickey Die.

The tiny sentiment is from Cuddly Bunny and the crown is a Tim Holtz Die .

Here is a picture of the pull out part with a gorgeous pink bow !!

Darcy Day

Hi Crafty Bloggers

How are you all ! I still have not been round to see you all but I will get there ! I finished my course this week the stamp monster was with me and I have highlighter pen all over my hands as he could not help himself !! I did get him back though on the neck lol ! Even my mother in law said he was like that at school ! and he is now 43 lol.

 I managed to get today off as we smashed the course ! Yeah ;0) (boss does not know so ssshhhh !)  I was invited by Gayle to join in this weeks Darcy's Diaries Challenge so I jumped at the chance ! This is what's new this fortnight they are so hard to resist !! The new challenge starts today which is flower power - use three or more flowers !! which is open until Tuesday 17th April !!!

I had to choose the Darcysdiaries_032 with bubbles ! I just love Gayle's drawings and how she shades them slightly so you can use your darker colouring there ! My sansador is really low so my colouring is a not popping ! Hurry up postman !! lol

I made a porthole and put some acetate over her !! I used glamour dust on her tail and bubbles ! I made a the ribbon design just putting bits of tape down and them folding the ribbon again !

 Lastly I had one of those mad moments where I put down some clear glass cabochons which magnify just a wee bit and are huge bubbles lol it's a bit out there but hey why not lol ! This stamp monster thinks they are OTT lol ! but I like them !

I am off to take my time and play with Magnolia as had rushed the last two !! I shall leave the recipe underneath !! I have super Candy at the top of my blog if you haven't entered why not check it out !
