Hi everyone,

What a carry on I've had with blogger. A few weeks ago I managed to accidentally change my blog name-but, I thought I'd stick with it. I thought that if my old name no longer existed then there'd be no problem, but oh no!! I know a few people were having problems, even when the entered my new name it kept directing them back to my old one, so to keep things easy (after losing 3 hours the other day) I've decided to go back to my old name.

Here's today's card.

I've used 'Meant to be' from the new release from Lili Of The Valley, and I've coloured it in with distress inks. I've attempted clouds, for the first time-I'm not sure if they're too subtle. I'm entering this into Lili's Little Fairies challenge, were the theme this week is 'Ribbons and Bows'.  I'm also entering it into Crafting Lifes Pieces 'Sketch #46'.

The paper is from Bildmalarna, and I've distressed the edges with Walnut Stain ink, and sewn them using that great top stitch thread from the Ribbon Girl again. The taffeta ribbon is also from there. I don't tend to use buttons on my cards and I found this one in a bag of Christmas coloured ones and don't have a clue where it's from. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft. The dies that the sentiment is on are from Whimsy, I bought the tiny tab letters off eBay an age ago.

That's it from me, my Magnolia Stamp kit arrived this morning and I'm itching to get one inked up.
