Easel Valentine with Magnolia meeting Copics

Good evening everyone 
and welcome to my new followers 
- who I know I have but currently cannot see???????????????????????? (I am sure this will resolve itself in it's own time)

I was not feeling to good this morning so took a pain killer and headed back to bed, to be woken at 9am by the National Grid (Gas) man.  Who wanted to see my gas meter.  (oh what a thrill you might think - Not)  As my house is the same age as me, the National Grid bods, have decided that the pipework down our street requires replacing - to avoid gasing us in the future  - I presume.  However, drilling with a pneumatic drill at 9.15am and 9.30 am, did not thrill me. (after drilling the wrong hole in the first place - they located a pipe, they said, no it was electricity cables) the hole is smack in the middle of my drive at the end of it. So the long story is, I did not sleep through to the getting better stage :(((((((((((

About 3.30pm I started to feel a little fed up, I do not do sick days at all well, I get bored to easy and can not sit still.  So went up to the "Beach Hut" and started work on a card, whilst watching the little gas bods drilling more holes up the street.  My son Mike helped me figure out increasing an easel template to fit my needs and then he created me an exploding box template to fit A4 card, he is lovely and I can tell he is bored of not having a job, helping me, to amuse himself.

Anyway enough of that this easel card I really enjoyed doing and I am entering into multiple challenges, so here goes

Just Magnolia - a sketch - (I have mirrored this to enable my choice of stamps to be used)

Cardvarks - A Red Heart (this is a new challenge site for me)

Magnolia Down Under - Valentines (one of my favourite challenge sites)

So here is the card

The mono chrome paper = Papermania capsule collection, Mono Paperpack by Tina Higgins - Tilly's

Magnolia stamps (thanks to Polly for allowing me to stamp them - when mine still have not arrived)
Roses and lace from Boy's in Grimsby

Ribbon from Tilly's 
Pearls from Hobby House

A close up of the paper (it is delicious)

The Red (Magnolia) Heart, not sure where the sentiment stamp is from....

The lace and punching

The florals and close up of the copic coloured image on my old style comic board
Copics = W3,W5,W7, R27,R29,R37, E50,E51,E53,E43,E33,E35, E00,E02 & E21


and finally the inner - sentiment is MSE

Oh needed to mention, did my winning shop and spent my winnings and the same again and then some on top, can't wait for it to arrive to play.  Fab site for shopping Simons says stamp, will definately be going there again, in the not tooooooooo distant future.

My son is cooking this evening, so I am going to eat.

Thanks for looking and for your recent kind comments

cya tomorrow

Hugs Kate xx
