Magnolia Down Under Challenge

I'd like to say I've been really busy and use that as the excuse for not posting anything lately but I can't...I've just been lazy (when it comes to cards anyway)!  I'm on holidays with Dan and the kids and I'm really enjoying doing not much at all!  We had a great week away with friends after christmas but since then we've just been floating around doing whatever we feel like.  It's kinda nice....I could get very used to this:-)

It's wet and rainy here in Melbourne so I sat down and finished my card.  I started it days ago but just couldn't finish it...didn't like the colours, didn't like the papers yada yada but I did love the sketch (from Magnolia Down Under) so after a few changes here it is:

Stamps: Tilda and fence from Magnolia, sentiment from Papertrey Ink
Papers: Kaiser (Tea at Elsie's)
Copics:  Y21, E97, E99 (hair), E40, YR00, YR02 (clothes), C7, C5, C3 (shoes), E29, E29, E53, E35 (fence), E00, E000, R20 (skin), G85, G94, YR21 YR23 (flowers)
Accessories: EK success swirl border punch, flowers, locket charm and tag from Picture2Page.

I've bought a few new stamps lately, so if this weather keeps up no doubt you'll see a few more cards soon.   It seems we're getting the tail end of the weather that has been so devastating in Queensland. My thoughts are with all those affected, I can't begin to imagine what they are going through.

Thanks for stopping by,

Lovely card Kirsty, the colours are beautiful.
I live on the Gold Coast and luckily we've been spared the flooding which is so bad up north.
Still been raining here constantly though!
