Friday Sketchers, Just Magnolia, Winner, More Sweet Stuff for YOU!!!
Happy Monday everyone!!! Sorry I have been so long in posting but last week was one I would like to forget!! And I am very sorry in advance if what I am going to tell you offends anyone BUT I was diagnosed with invasive lobular breast cancer last week...so this week will be filled with scans, tests, and all of that pre-op stuff, and surgery is scheduled for February 2 with a radiation regimen afterwards! I would like to apologize for not being able to get around to visit you and your blogs because of so many time constraints with appointments, etc. BUT you all know that I will be over to see you as soon as I can!!! The good news is that it is so difficult to keep a strong woman down SO I will be here as much as I physically can!!! Ladies, please, please, please remember those mammograms for both you and your loved ones!!!!
Now on to happier stuff!!! This is my DT Sample card for Just Magnolia this week using a delightful sketch by the very talented JayJay. The DP is from K&Co and I have added a pink rhinestone heart, pink organza ribbon and gold heart buttons. This darling Cupid Tilda, colored in Copics with a touch of MS glitter on her head and Diamond Glaze on the arrows, and from Magnolia-licious is encircled with pleated grosgrain ribbon. Finally I added a Tiny Tag from SU.
This is my DT Sample card for Friday Sketchers where we are being hosted this week by Jacqueline from The Netherlands. Again I used the same DP from K&Co and added some wide heart ribbon, a little Melissa Frances frame, and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Tilda with Key from Magnolia-licious is colored with Copics and the key is highlighted with a bit of Gold Smooch. I bordered her with lace/heart trim and finished the front with heart gems on the corners.
To match this card I decorated a papier mache heart box with the same trims and added doilies, gold hearts, and a bit of ribbon and roses.
I have filled the heart box with Happy Valentines embellishments and it is ready to be mailed to some lucky commenter!! I would also appreciate it if you would invite others to drop by. Inside you will find....
--packs of both red and white paper lace doilies
--a pack of Smitten K&Co rhinestones
--a pack of red rhinestones
--a handful of heart charms
--a length of red heart wire
--Happy Valentine's Day stamp
--6 types of Valentine ribbons
--a packet of heart buttons
--a bouquet of Wild Orchid Crafts red roses
--a jar of Fire Engine Red Shimmerz!!!
