Happy Friday AND a big WELCOME to the Magnolia-licious SUMMER NOTES Blog Hop and to Friday Sketchers 55 which is my week to sponsor. I am so glad you dropped by and I know that everything below is going to be bunches of fun for all of us...So join in on both activities and let's have a blast!!!
Magnolia-licious SUMMER NOTES Blog Hop
The Design Team members of Magnolia-licious have all made a summer themed sticky note holder and box using the design of Bridgett Owens and using Magnolia stamps. You will need to make the same project and upload it to Mr Linky at Magnolia-licious Highlites to be eligible to win the prize of 3 Magnolia stamps from Diana at Magnolia-licious. The winner will be selected randomly on June 12 from all of those who have met the criteria and posted at the Magnolia-licious Highlites site. The Blog Hop begins with Suzanne Dean who will give you complete instructions and requirements for the project and she will direct you to the next DT who will show you their respective projects. Good luck and don't forget to come back to visit me because I have a wee touch of sweet stuff for you to win!!
My project uses DP from the Pretty Papers Bloc Blue of Marianne Design of the Netherlands and Lemon Tart CS and satin ribbon from PTI. I added a few daisies to each part of the set. The Magnolia that I have used is Sweetheart Tilda from the Love Collection 2009. Although I have used the mini size, which was a very special gift, the regular size can be seen below in my Friday Sketchers card and various desk accessories I made as a part of my prize! She can be found at Magnolia-licious, which has the largest on-line selection of Magnolia stamps in all of North America.
Friday Sketchers 55
Since I am the host of this week's Friday Sketchers Challenge 55, I would like to invite each of you to our blog to see the wonderful cards made by our DT of Bea, Carole, Claudia, Heidi, Jacqueline, Jeanette, and Tanja using MY sketch -- MY VERY FIRST SKETCH!!!
I would love for you to participate this week at Friday Sketchers and would be thrilled to see your card using my sketch!! We have a very cute set of stamps by Our Craft Lounge as this week's prize which is sponsored by Sir Stampalot. Hope to see you there!!!
Here is my card for the week:
Many of you know me well enough to know that I certainly had to color/theme coordinate my entire blog post today so BLUE and YELLOW and DAISIES it is!!! I used the same papers that I used for the project above and for the wee projects in my sweet stuff. All of the main panels were stitched and I used Sweetheart Tilda and Ribbon With Bows from the Love Collection 2009 and Spring Daisies from the Chasing Butterflies Collection 2009. All coloring on the card is Copics except for the foliage on the daisies which is Spica. Since I could not find pearls that matched well, I used Copics to color the plain white pearls. Here is the quite simple inside of the card:
Now for some MORE FUN & SWEET STUFF
My prize today is pictured above and I will ship anywhere that a mailperson goes!! lol...
