Hello peeps,
Thank you so much for your lovely comments about Maddy's card drive, I will get round to thanking you personally, I've been struggling a bit with typing so I've been quietly hopping away for a couple of days. 
I'm loving seeing people's gorgeous cards with the new Magnolia's, I've been naughty & bought most of them but I'm trying really hard to resist using them yet as I have so many uninked stamps from the Summer Memories collection & I'm not ready for Autumn yet anyway, I want Summer soooo much.

Today I have a picture heavy post as I have two cards to share as it's new challenge day at
