Hello everyone,

From the very hot and sunny Netherlands I welcome my new followers and thank everyone for all the great compliments that I received for The Pirates of Magnolia. One message was even more fun than the other, but there was one that I really loved and that was make me laughing very much. Martina from Austria wrote to me that she really liked the wonderful card. However, there was actually one thing .... and that was a person, who was missing ..... ...Johnny Depp. I also totally agree with her, especially those fantastic black eyes, but sorry Edwin pirate is Swedish and has blue eyes. So pity. Thank you very much for your original message Martina. Also thanks to Simply Magnolia for my place in the Top 3.

This time I have again created something completely different than previous times. There were several challenges that combine well with each other and this is the result. I am quite happy myself, because it's exactly as I had invented it. Something that not always succeeds. But that's a problem we all know, isn't it.
Het Moeder Hobby Paleis  asked to make something for a birthday inspired of this photo by Karin.

I post my gift heart to:

Moeders Hobby Paleis, inspired by a photo Karin
MDUC: Make your own embellishments from scratch.
Simply Magnolia: Pearls and Lace Challenge

I have all the flowers handmade from old patterns, which I've ever designed as Pergamanoteacher. The flowers are all made from handmade paper from Nepal. The Pearl flowers I've made of nylon wire and pearls in different sizes and with D3 kit pasted. Delicious dirty work. The lace is all pleated by hand.

The butterflies are made with an unknown die and assembled with a stamen and paste pearls From various types of stamens I have made small bunches of flowers.

Used materials:

Paper: Magnolia sea of memories  (Rosegarden, Kitchen cloth red and green)
Stamps: Magnolia Summer Flower Tilda and text stamps
Doohickey: Magnolia strawberry leaf, unknown die butterflies
Flowers: handmade with handmade paper from Nepal
Pearls and lace, nylon wire from own stock
Coloured with Copics

This was my creation for this week. I hope you like my gift heart to and hear it of couse from you. Have a nice weekend and until next time.

With love from Holland,
