Marvelous Magnolia Hearts

Hello friends!
Happy Thursday to you all!
I've not been feeling very organised at the moment, in fact, I have a hundred and one ideas floating about in my head of all the things I want to do. Crafty things, food type things, house type things etc etc. Maybe it is just a creative mind but I have all these good intentions and never seem to follow up on any of them, is anyone else as bad as me?!
I get all these fab ideas via pInterest and think "I'm def gonna do that" but do I?!!!
I want to do creative things other than make cards. I want to create photos with quotes and words on for art around the home. I want to make more home cooked foods (I even bought a slow cooker on monday!) I want to help my kids more with their education. I want to create moments in everyone's lives that they will remember forever! I want to be healthier and fitter. I know I'm a crazy woman!
Maybe this is why I got ill recently!
But I need to make lists so I can tick these things off. I need to plan out my day so I don't procrastinate and end up doing none of the above!
But I know I also need to find time to chill out and relax, I need to factor this into my list too!
If I manage to succeed in any of this I will let you know and I will let you know how I've managed it, maybe this is my late resolution to "be more pro active!" LOL
I do have a DT card for you today! We have a new challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia which is
Especially for the impending Valentines day! I have made a card on commission today, a friend who requested a valentines card from me.
My pretty papers are MME lost and found with love ticket from Tim Holtz,  flowers from WOC, butterfly from Kays and sentiment from SU.
I have coloured Edwin with prisma pencils. I love him for cards that are from men to women he is such a sweetie. I have used a kaisercraft postage stamp around the edge in vintage photo ink.
I would like to enter this into...
Papertake weekly anything goes, Bearly mine anything goes, Tuesday throwdown heart strings, Party time Tuesday love and romance,  Pinspirational challenges picture inspiration here..
Sweet stamps think pink, The Inky chicks Valentine and Simon says stamp have a heart.
Do check out what the rest of the team have done with this challenge. We are sponsored this week by Tildas Town so please join in for a chance at a great prize!

Big hugs

Your Edwin is so adorable. The swirls look great together with Tilda.

Oh wow Rebekah this is magnificent! You always put the most amazing detail on your cards.

Don't beat yourself up about all these things. You have a young family and you still manage to make the most amazing cards. I am retired and have the same thoughts but never seem to achieve anything!! xx
