Following Corry

Hello again and thank you for visiting. I've titled this post 'Following Corry' because I was checking out out her blog Free 4 Ever the other day and she had made the most amazing card all in white and I knew I had to try that, so thank you Corry for being an inspiration!!

I had been itching to get my hands on some new Mini World Magnolia's and couldn't wait till they were released here in the UK so I ordered some from Diana at Magnolia-licious - they arrived just as quick as anything I've ordered in the UK and there was allsorts of freebies thrown in the parcel too! Many thanks to everyone there.
Now, my photography skills are rubbish! The heart at the bottom is bright red glitter but it looks at bit dull on this pic and the sun was a nightmare throwing shadows everywhere!
Magnolia Down Under are asking that we use 'Embossing' on our cards this week so out came the Cuttlebug. (Thinking of you Guys down under with the cyclone xx)
Totally Tilda want to see "Tilda With Lots Of Hearts' so I decided to make these the only colourful part of my card, apart from little Tilda that is.
All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge has a theme 'Queen Of Hearts' so we qualify for that one and the whole card was created from a sketch by Lynn for Cute Card Thursday.
Over at Simon Says Stamps this week 'Love Is In The Air'
ABC Challenge  have asked us to use 'Nesties' this week on our cards.
I used Shy Tilda from the Mini World Collection and a Doo Hickey Swirl Die, Nestabilities, 2 Cuttlebug embossing folders and everything else was from my stash.
Thanks again for looking - don't forget to leave a trace x Laurie x

I just found out that I won the challenge for my Blowing Kisses Tilda over at Sarah Hurley wayheeyy and thanks or choosing me! I could get used to this!!!
