Just Magnolia and Hanglar & Stanglar

This weeks challenge 23 is a sketch provided by Bev. I love her sketches so it came in handy to create this card. I've used Tilda with watering can. The papers are by Prima called sparkling spring (I wish!!). I've used a punch for my flowers and the birthday sentiment was a freebie Papermania stamp that was with a Do-Crafts magazine.

A Treat for Me

I've always fancied a bread maker but with there being quite a few to chose from I didn't have a clue which one to buy. I bought the magazine Eat In recently and inside was an article called Gadget of the month. Yes it was for a bread maker. The review was really good so it helped me make up my mind. I am now the proud owner of a Kenwood Bread Maker BM366. Also with the bread maker comes a measuring jug and a spoon (sad I know but I love the spoon and there is no way you could get your measurements wrong with it). I've made my first loaf today. This is my first (and hopefully not my last) wholemeal loaf. Does it look gorgeous or what!!! The proof will be in the eating of it. Can't wait.

A Sketch and Anything Goes

I've used the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge #171. The background paper is Papermania Capsule Collection called Aqua Paper. The image I've used is a Mo Manning digital image called The Engineer. I've been itching to buy him for ages. Its my uncles birthday and he is a model train collector and I just thought this image was perfect for him. The banner is a Papertrey die and I've used peel offs for the sentiment. I also added little black pearls on the front of his train. I'm also entering this into Papertakes Weekly Challenge which is Anything Goes.
