Magnolia Heart

I recently got my first Magnolia magazine issue 2 i think. I was so impressed with it i just loved everything that was inside it.. all the inspirations and tips plus lovely pictures of many cards i just wanted to do everything that was in the
I got the inspiration to do this little heart bag/box i'm not really sure what to call it.I love all the Manolia stamps but as i have only just started collecting them.. i have a long way to go yet.. but i have just found a site that sells a lot of these stamps that i am itching to get more and more.. but bank balance just tells me i have to wait aweeeeeeeeee!!!.
I coloure my images with distress inks.. i think i am getting better but still have a long way to go yet.
I made a smaller heart and decided to triple emboss it.. to which i then put it into the freezer for a bit so it had that cracke effect.
I then added some prima flowers i have in my stash and paper roses.
I really do hope you like as i enjoyed making it very much.
Thanks for looking.

altered tin

This is a little tin i had kept from christmas.. it was originally a golf cup in a tin that my daughter bought her dad for christmas.
I didn't really know what to do with it really, but as i have never altered anything before i decided to decorate it and make
it my Magnolia stamp tim as it's just the right size.
Thanks for looking

card in a box

Hi every1,
What a fab sunday this is..hope every1 is feeling great and crafting... I am going to upload a few of my cards i have made over the recent weeks.. i have not been on here for a while as i have had a chest infection and didn't want to stay in my bedroom where the big computor is.. as it's a bit cold in there lol.
and as thats where my printer and scanner is hense why i have not uploaded anything till today.. i am not sure if i can put a few items on or not on the blogger but here
This is a little box card i made a last night.. wasn't sure if it would go ok.. but i am pleased with it... i need to spend a little more time on the box decorating it me thinks. I used mulberry flowers for the box and used asitate for the heart i just thought it would be nice to see the card inside.

The stamp is called Dreamy and it's from my local craft store that is now selling the sugar nellie stamps whit-woooooo.
Hope you all have a great day.. and thanks for looking.
Hugs Lindsey
