Just Magnolia #6

I've had a really good day today (for a change this week). I had a wedding to do this morning and I really enjoy doing weddings. There is usually an atmosphere of excitement and anticipation and this one was no exception and let's face it you can't beat bacon butties and Bucks Fizz for breakfast!! When I arrived home I sat down and quietly and peacefully made this card and enjoyed doing so enormously. Now I shall have a bath, wash my hair, put on some snugglies pour myself a large G&T and celebrate the end of a tiresome week bydoing some visiting and commenting which have been pretty much neglected this week. "Let's get in Shape" is the title for this week's Just Magnolia challenge. This didn't quite turn out as anticipated - I visioned Alf with his head at the top of a point, his feet at the bottom. How on earth I imagined a card could stand on a point Heaven only knows ......derrrrrr.......... I'd never make an engineer (lol). But it does stand up and it opens so it wasn't a complete failure. I decorated the inside and the back - the back the same as the right inside leaving the white square blank to be written on.
