 It's "La-La Land "Inspirational Monday" and this week the theme to inspire you is
*****ALL WIRED UP*****
On my card I used one of the NEW releases images
 MARCI with LANTERN
 and is available HERE.
I printed out a few images of Marci with Lantern so I could use the lantern she is holding to make my  banner across the top of the page.. I then attached them to wire that I had coiled by wrapping around a toothpick.

hi everyone...I think most would agree that the latest Magnolia stamps-Collection "Princess and Princesses"  are just fabulous....
On my card today I have used Tilda catching Stars amd the Magnolia Castle. I fussy cut Tilda out and replaced the stars with some Hearts. 
I teamed the images up with my Memory Box Dies- Orchard Tree Frame and Wrought Iron Gate from Bizzy Becs Online Store...plus a little bit of machine stitching and some lace to finish off my card..
Over at Bizzy Becs Challenges this month the Theme is Texture... dont forget to get those entries in....

Relax..in style...

  It's "La-La Land "Inspirational Monday" and this week the theme to inspire you is
RECYCLE/ALTER SOMETHING
I went with the recycling bit and used gold ribbon from a wedding I went to a little while ago that was on the Bonbonniere box that we all given... I just loved the colour so off I went collecting all the ribbon no one wanted, knew it would come in handy one day plus I used some new gauze that was in a first aid kit... best go replace that.... if someone needs it then it wont be there....

********** DARLING MARCI***********
 is the name of this cutie
 and she is available as both a rubber stamp and a digi-stamp, HERE and HERE.
*************************
..some info....When you pop on over to the shop you will find Darling Marci "minus" the shower/bath hat.  The Hat is something extra I gave her so she would not get her hair wet when she is in the bath.
