Magnolia's for August

Good morning all, 

It is the 30th of August, and life is starting to come back to Athens, Greece. I always say that it is the best month to be in town. No people, no noise and a lot of parking spaces. As it was so quiet i made some time to make my monthly Magnolia cards. Nothing special, but always cute!!

Wishing you a great day.

Just want to say....

Up Up Up and away.............

How are you doing? 

As the holidays are now over i will be posting a lot more creations starting from September. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Good morning all, 

Just 2 different cards that i made to enter in a design team but no luck. I love them both, i used paper from webster pages and bo bunny. Both companies are my style! I like flowers on my cards, and i try not to stuff my cards too much, but it is hard because there are so many nice embellishments. 

The doily is made from a product of cheery lynn designs. There products are really nice. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Good morning all, 

I made this page 2 months ago. It's a picture of me and makis, during a diner in athens. I sprayed the background with black silver glimmer mist. The heart doilies are from cheery lynn designs. The flowers i made myself from some ribbon and added some gem on it. I printed the picture in black and white and added some distress ink on the edges and my scarf to match it with the orange lace. 

Here is a close up from the doilies.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good evening all, 

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer holidays. We finally booked something yesterday evening and we are off to Kefalonia early in the morning tomorrow. I have a few things to mention in my post today, haven't been online for a while.............1st of all It was my birthday on the 28th of July and i want to show off the beautiful cards that i received. We did not do anything special, just went out for diner in my favorite restaurant. But i had two birthday cakes, one with friends and one with my greek family. 

These two cards above i got from Marie my fellow Get creative design team member. So beautiful!!! Thank you marie very much, i love them both.
