The Best thing to hold on to........

Hello and happy Friday everyone! I have a card today using my most favorite technique, masking. I used the normal sized hearts from the Wedding Collection, and the mini Tilda from the Yummy for your Tummy Collection. I LOVE masking. I cannot say it enough, you can make such different looking cards with the same stamps!!!

This card is for Just Magnolia our theme is My Favorite Thing.. well it's pink and has lots of flowers and Magnolias so that just about sums it up! It's also my sketch for the Fussy and Fancy Challenge!

Well I'm off, I have to finish laundry, get ready and go get the kids. Today's their early day, then we are going to visit my Nana. I haven't seen her since Christmas and she's so lonely since Papa passed. So the kids and I get some quality time with Nana. Yippie!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ohh Dont forget to order the Be Mine Magnolia Ink!

Such a beautiful card Minday, i love masking too, i do a lot with distress inks and watercolouring and have just incorporated masking and brayering into my repetoire, so i am enjoying the effects i can get with masking from the same stamps!! thats why i love stamping so much as its always teaching me new things even though most would say i do advanced stamping, im still learning and enjoying every minute of it, i love what you do!!
