The Great Outdoors

Time for my last challenge at My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges, this week we're sponsored by Pollycraft. I've decided to step down from the DT, it was a hard decision though, I'm also on the DT at Midweek Magnolia's and as they both go live on a Wednesday I don't feel that I can do justice to both challenges. My cards heavily feature my Magnolia Stamps, so I decided to go with Midweek Magnolias. I'll always be grateful to MMCS as they were the first DT I became part of, and I wish all of the girls well.

This week we want to see your cards with the theme of 'The Great Outdoors'.

I've coloured Explore Tilda from the Sweet Rainbow Collection with distress inks. The papers are from Magnolia, I've used Tim Holtz's distress tool to distress the edges and sewn them using Top Stitch Thread from The Ribbon Girl.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and used Diamond Stickles on them. The lace is from The Ribbon Girl. The border die is a doohickey die.

Pop over to MMCS and have a look at the gorgeous creations my teamies have come up, I am going to miss working with them all.



  1. Another amazing card, great colors and beautiful layout. Tilda is perfectly colored, and the flowers are gorgeous.

    Hugs, Anne.

  2. Hi Becky
    beautiful card (as always), sorry to hear that you are stepping down from the MMCS, BUT on the other hand I would imagine it's very hard to try & come up with two cards every Wednesday. I struggle with making one a week lol, & I haven't got a young family to look after. It must be very hard for you to juggle being a wife/mother/homemaker etc. I'm sure that they are going to miss you greatly on their team.
