Hi everyone, well can't believe the weather we have been having lately up and down like a yo-yo.  This last week the humidity has been awful, today is a pleasant relief  so am quite looking forward to Autumn and being cooler.

Now that school has gone back the dog is back outside again and she doesn't like the hot weather at all, almost tears the door down when I get home, poor thing. She has loads of fresh water and spends most of the day in my Orchid House which has a sand base and she can keep relatively cool there in the shade, down side being she is full of black dust. As you might guess she is very much an inside dog and loves to be around us as much as she can.

Today I would like to share with you a card I made using a Magnolia Stamp "Edwin with Aeroplane"  he is so cute just had to stamp him up and colour him.  I thought that it fitted in with this months theme of "Friendship" over at Bizzy Becs. I have also used one of my new dies from Magnolia for the hello banner.

There is still time left to join in the February challenge at Bizzy Becs and have the opportunity to win 5 digis of your choice from Becs store.

Look forward to seeing your cards, happy creating.

Welcome to a new challenge at Bizzy Becs .  The theme this month  being February is 'FRIENDSHIP' and was chosen by Michelle.

The prize this month is:

 your choice of '5' digital images from Bizzy Becs online store

I  have chosen to present my image on a 6 x 6 canvas which I firstly covered in gesso and then using the background papers from the ' Card Embellishment Kit 4' which is available in store here and are always very popular after adhering it to the canvas, I then dry brushed with gesso and inked around the edges with dark brown ink.

The image used is a magnolia stamp called 'Up Up and Away' and is from the new With Love collection 2013 and whilst it is not currently available in store there are still some others from that collection that can be found here.  I have coloured her with Copic Markers.  The quote I found online and is by Eleanor Roosevelt about True Friends.  Once reduced it fitted perfectly onto a Magnolia die cut tag.

So pop on over to Bizz Becs Store Blog here and check out my other teamies fabulous creations to get you inspired.  

Hopefully the issue with Blogger is now all resolved and I look forward to seeing your creations.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Crafting.

Have a fabulous day
