Magical Mimi!

I have no idea what to say about this card other than WHAT was I thinking! I loved all the elements separately, but put them together and it was a disaster!!! The stamp is lovely though so I thought I'd blog it anyway.

The stamp is from Penny Black and is called Magical Mimi! She is just sooo cute. The card is for my daughter's friend who turns 5 this weekend. Think of me this weekend - we have two parties in two days. Oh boy!! My husband's parents are also coming to visit at the weekend. I don't know about you, but I'm not much good at being on my best behaviour!!!!!

Back to Mimi. The papers are from the Polkadoodles Sugar Plum Daisy CD. The rosette is made using the Tim Holtz 'Decorative Strip' sizzlits die. This die works MUCH better now that I have myself a glue gun. (Seriously, what kind of loony sells ME a glue gun?) You have to get one, they are just fab. I'm going to try making one of those coil flowers - I always have trouble with the gluing and I reckon the hot glue will fix it much better.

The butterfly is a doohickey. Gosh, I hope Ellie likes it. What a disaster! Not to worry, tomorrows card is much calmer. I have been crafting this week but mainly making LOTV DT cards. I'm getting ahead so I don't have to panic over the Easter hols. It's not easy crafting with a 4 year old who's intent on 'helping'!!

Hope to see you tomorrow for Lili's Little Fairies - nice and easy challenge tomorrow. No excuses!!! And we're getting a new boiler tomorrow - we will be penniless but have hot water at last. Yeah! Hugs, have a great day, Jayne xx
