Midweek Magnolias #4

Hello all you Magnolia fans! 
Welcome to yet another MIDWEEK MAGNOLIAS  challenge! 
I'd like to start by saying congrats to the winner and Magnolia Marvels from last challenge! Some really wonderful creations out here in blogland! Some real incredible inspiration! 
Speaking of which, I am here to hopefully inspire you to try out next challenge which is another fabby sketch! 



So for my card today, I've used Gymnastics Tilda from the Winner Takes All Collection. I bought this Tilda specifically because my daughter is in gymnastics {however may not be continuing after this year due to a shortage of coaches : (  }. My sentiment "FUN" is a chipboard piece and the ribbon attached to it is recycled from a creation sent to me by a fellow blogger! I love to recycle rather than discard! 
My other sentiment is an acetate type paper word from a collection i bought ages ago. 
I embossed the pink paper behind Tilda with swirls. 


I am going to be posting this creation over at my alter ego blog Steel Magnolias...where you will find creations from my other friends as well! Alot of inspiration in one place !




Here's a few pics of my kiddos at their final gymnastics performance!
Here my daughter is doing the splits on the beam and below she is finishing off with a round off! I almost flipped off my chair when she did that! LOL 


Here's her and her partner, doing their back bends! 


And let's not forget about my son! Doing a sommersault. 
And below, he's walking on the beam and finishing off with some parellel bars! 








Pls don't forget to give the other MIDWEEK MAGNOLIAS  some love!
