Home Sweet Home at Just Magnolia and RRR and WINNER!!!!
Gosh!! I hope you are all having a magnificent weekend!!! I intended to have one myself until radiation proved me wrong!!! I ended up quite burned on a very tender body part but this too shall pass...Heck, I have bathed in Aloe since Friday so I am sure Nature will protect me!!! Smiles...I am just hoping that the burns do not delay me at this point and by Monday I am ready to progress....wink wink!!! I am down to 15+ more sessions left and I am past ready for them to be over!!!!
This week at Just Magnolia the Design Team was asked to use a sentiment on our card, which was fun because I rarely use sentiments. I hope you will have a peek at the magnificent cards made by the wonderful design team and will decide that you wish to join with us this week.....so just get your Magnolias ready and add a sentiment and let us see your exciting submissions. This week we are sponsored by Dies to Die For who have provided a very nice prize for one of you!!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base and all matting; the DP is from Melissa Frances' Kitchy Kitchen Paper Pad which were gifts from two of my very special friends for my birthday, Claudia and Suzan..Thank you both so much....these papers are ME and I just LOVE them!!!! They remind me so much of the aprons I saw my grandmother wearing that she had made from flour and sugar sacks...just so reminiscent!! I machine stitched all base panels. I had to use an apron motif on the front of my card based upon my sweet recollections. For the waistband I used a magnificent Lime jute ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, adding pre-gathered eyelet lace and a cute pink and white trim, as well as flat pink flowers. I stamped that darling Kitchen Tilda on Cryogen White and colored her with Copics, then placing her on a double Nestie propped up on dimensional tape. Kitchen Tilda is from Magnolia-licious. Although it appears that she is not available at the moment...please contact Diana and I am sure she will make sure she is available for you. I then added some pre-pleated eyelet and floral trim to the apron's edge, and finished with some soft pink flowers from Natural Accents. To satisfy the sentiment requirement I embossed a Stampavie Home Sweet Home on the apron's edge in Celery Green.
For the inside of my card I used the cute, cute Magnolia Cupcake stamp on the first panel, propping it up on a horizontal of the jute and floral trim. Although it doesn't appear as available at the moment, Diana does have some more cupcake stamps which are so cute and useable as well!! I first colored it with Copics, then added the half-pearls, and finally used Liquid Applique for the dimension of the frosting, finishing with several of the flat flowers also. On the second panel, the jotting panel, I also used a double Nestie and also used a gold metal spoon with more flat flowers.
I hope you like my little creation and will jump over and see the magnificent creations made by my DT Sissies at Just Magnolia. We would love for you to whip out your Maggies and join with us this week!!!
The Winner of my RRR SWEET STUFF is....
