Marvelous Magnolia - New Beginnings


 
Morning :)
 
Hope the weather isnt too bad where you are today - its still very cold here, but yesterday I was out with the dogs and the most beautiful snowflakes were falling :)
 
My card today is for our new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia, where this weeks theme is 'New Beginnings'.  We are sponsored this week by The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, so a really fabby prize too.
 
I used the gorgeous Tilda With Wand for my card, and raided my scrap box for paper, and card scraps.  I used a mixture of Doo Hickey, Cheery Lynn and spellbinders dies, and coloured my image with PM's.  The brads, pearls, flowers and twine are from stash.
 
I am still struggling along with my internet - QSat have a progressive throttling system throughout the month, so unfortunately things just seem to get slower and slower :(  Its pants tbh, but I keep plodding on :)
 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I will be trying to catch up later (if I can get pictures to load!) lol :)

Gorgeous card, loving those new CL dies, they are on my shopping list.
Can't believe the issues you have with your internet, oh how we take it for granted. I have got 5 pc's on my connection all either playing on-line games or streaming tv and ipads/iphones connected to it all for just £25 a month. My boys wouldn't know what to do if they lost the internet, bit sad really how much we rely on it xx

Sarah said...

Oh Alison, another stunning card! Love, love, love your use of the dies - I would love to come play with some of them!

I honestly do not know how you manage with such a bad internet connection. I know mine is pretty bad (heaps better than when we first moved here and had dial-up, but still) but I don't think I could function with yours! And my hubby would blow a gasket I think!!!

Hope you are all well and surviving the snow!

Sarah
