One Card; Two Challenges!

JM04a

I don't often combine cards on challenges ... but this one has been such a trial ... I kind of thought ... Oh what the heck!

I started this card yesterday for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is "Happy Mail"JM04

I say I started it because colouring in Tilda and deciding on the "Happy Mail" message ... that's as far as I got ... and then I got side tracked with the clock ... as you do! You do too??? ... Right???

Anyways, the elements were on my desk this morning when the Just magnolia challenge was set ... the theme this week being "in stitches"!

Now this is the 4th week of that challenge and every week so far I have promised myself I would enter ... and then got side tracked!

So I added the back ground to the Tilda and a few faux stitches ... a tag and a few blossoms and voila ... a card that took flippin' ages to make :0)) but fits TWO challenges!!!

Very cute!! I've just discovered the joy of stamping and colouring with some Daisy and Dandelion stamps and water colour pencils. I could become hooked!

Perfect. Challenges are just that for me - I get into the 'trying too hard' thing and it's all ghastly and I've spent ages and don't submit!! Gaaa!
