What's New at Just Magnolia? Winners!! Sweet Stuff!!
Happy Saturday and a wonderful weekend to all of you!! Gosh it feels like spring here today and nobody is happier than I am about it!! We had rain yesterday and FINALLY all the snow from December is washed away!! Yippppeeee!! Thank heavens we have warm weather just in time for my bald head!! LOL I don't have to be concerned about having a "bad hair day" any time soon...smile So many of you have asked how I am doing that I am happy to report that I am now feeling GREAT and expect to have a marvelous week before my next chemo on the 22nd....talk about "making hay while the sun shines"...this is living by a schedule!!! hahahahha
I wanted to show you my DT Sample Card for Just Magnolia this week where we have a wonderful sketch by the magnificently talented and creative Bev Rochester of All The Things I Love. We would love for you to come over and join with us this week in using this fun sketch! The only requirement is to use a Magnolia stamp when making the sketch and you will find that a lovely prize is being offered this week.
I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the DP is all from the My Mind's Eye Home Glitter Book. All background panels are machine stitched. Little Love News Tilda from Magnolia-licious was stamped twice on Cryogen White, colored with Copics, and one of the images was cut out and propped up for dimension. This cute little Maggie can certainly be used for all kinds of occasions and news announcements. The wide lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the inserted ribbon is PTI. The green Cherry Blossoms are Magnolia and the peach roses are WOC also...and all the flowers were Stickled and Shimmerzed to match the glitter of the papers. Finally light green pearls soften the corners.
For the inside, just a bit more of the lace and ribbon, a dangle flower charm, a small bouquet of the same flowers for the jotting spot, and smaller pearls on all the corners. I'm sorry that my photography is not so good because these papers have such a pretty glittery look that is not captured in the pictures.
And now for the WINNERS...First my sincere thanks to everyone who drops by to visit me...it is such a joy to read your sweet and kind comments! I wish I could send Sweet Stuff to all of you and I am trying my best. Let's see where these packages are going...
