Mojo Monday 84

My 3rd Tilda card today, as I look after my Granddaughter 3 days a week I'm only able to craft a couple of days a week, sometimes at the weekends, so try to do as much as possible in a few days.
In between I try to do the housework and cook meals, if only I had a maid eh! well one can but dream, just as well I don't have a proper job.

I loved the sketch this week at Mojo Monday and as I wanted to try out one of the other new magnolia stamps that I bought, thought I would join in this week.

Just Magnolia Week 2. Pink and green

On Saturday morning my new Magnolia Stamps arrived. just in time for week 2 on the new challenge blog, Just Magnolia .The theme this week is Ping and Green, I just love this colour combination. The papers are from DCWV. The saying is. "Spring is a heart full of hope, and a shoe full of rain."
A few years years ago I happened to say to my lovely daugther-in-law, Rhiannon, that I would love to be able to to do watercolouring, well that christmas I received a huge box of watercolour pencils, and I thought Wow! Well I can't draw for toffee, but now I have discovered a use for them and I am so pleased to have received them, that christmas long ago.

Thanks for Spring: Kazan's sketch 24
