Bonjour, mes amis!

This morning I would like to share with you my second guest designer creation for the Just Magnolia challenge blog (I was lucky enough to be chosen to be their GD for June!). The challenge set for this week (#9) is 'paper piecing', a technique which I love, and I have paper pieced Tilda's books!

I've had these two Magnolia stamps for ages now, but hadn't yet inked them up!! *blush* When I was told this week's challenge was paper piecing, I immediately reached for these little beauties. Both stamps are quite large, and originally I was going to have Tilda sat right at the top of the pile of books, but this would have made the image plate too big, so I sat her on the 3rd book from the top. Think of the books as being different sizes and piled quite hickledy-pickledy and that she is sat atop one that is poking out....otherwise it looks like she's levitating!! LOL! And that's not what I was trying to achieve! *grin*

I am going to enter this card in this fortnight's challenge #12 over at Sketch and Stash, as I followed their fabulous sketch! My 'never used stash' is my Magnolia stamps!

Make sure you hop on over the to the Just Magnolia blog to check out my temporary DT sistahs' creations - they are gorgeous!!

Thanks for visiting my little lovelies!

Hugs, Sem x
