four seasons in a year

My second post for today and i must add that mr blogger isnt loving me right now, not sure if anyone else is having this problem, but it took me an age to load my photos etc GGGGRRRRR!!
This is a free standing easel that i made from mount board and covered with all my elements, adding an angled piece at the back with hinges so that it would stand on a desk.
I used my newest Magnoila that was sent from the Netherlands by a friend, Thanks Honey, limited edition Tilda only available in the Netherlands right now, "Tilda with skates"
Then i used a few more of my Maggies to depict the four seasons of the year, adding the season to each image so there would be no confusion as to which one represented which season, he he
I am also gonna enter this into a few challenges, as i have used a few of my favourite elements, namley my copics, Maggies, flowers and stickles EVERYWHERE!
Challenge i am entering
Magnolia down under: calendar
copic creations: anything new
Just Magnolia: favourite things
Lets ink it up: Anything goes
Stamp something: anything goes
