SWEET STUFF and a Darling Tilda at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge!!!



Happy Friday to everyone!!! And I am so happy you have dropped by!! I hope you have had a delightful week and are looking forward to an exquisite weekend. We are supposed to have some nice weather so I can soak up some Vitamin D and do some inventory out in the yard and maybe even supervise a little bit...smile!!! Gosh, my next SURVIVOR appointment is April 19th so let's blow them away...want to?????

This week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge the very inspirational Bev is hosting and we have a really fun sketch by Kathy to play with and I hope you will decide to come over and join in with us!!! You can combine our challenge with any other challenges of your choice and as long as we can see all of the elements of the sketch and the main image on your creation is a hÄnglar & stÄnglar or Magnolia stamp you will qualify to be in the draw for the fabulous prize. And remember NO back linking; new projects/cards only please. The challenge closes next Thursday, 14th April and the fabulous prize is sponsored by the lovely Susanne from Embellishments DE with a splendid prize of a €15,00 voucher to spend in their store.

For my DT Sample Card following the sketch, I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting. All of the DP is from the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue Paper Pad and all panels are machine stitched. I used Tilda with Flower Pot from the new Butterfly Dreams Collection at Magnolia-licious. I think she is the cutest thing in her duster coat!! She was stamped on XPress It Blending Card and colored with Copics, adding a touch of Spica and Stickles to the butterflies and flowers. The image was double matted and placed on a paper doily. The vertical is edged with a lovely lace which was a gift from sweet Suzan...thanks, Sweetie...I just love it!! For the horizontal I used Pink Tulip Vintage Seam Binding Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts which I tied into a quadruple bow and topped it with a small gold heart. The floral treatment is also from WOC: a Gardenia Stem Flower, Aster Daisies, and Hip Rosebuds. The front is finished with WOC Pearls.



For the first panel on the inside, I repeated the vertical from the front and dangled a gold heart charm from the double bow. On the jotting panel I merely added a seam binding swag held with 3 vintage looking buttons. The message can be written on the DP since it is so light in color and unbusy in design.

I hope you will like my little creation and decide to get out your Maggies or Hangies and play along with us over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge. We would love to see your interpretation of this great sketch!!!

SWEET STUFF...Gosh, I got so excited that I can't wait til my REAL 2nd Blog Anniversary which is April 12 when I started my blog with the first card you see to the left. My sincere thanks (I think...hahahah) to the very talented Christina, who is the very best mentor that anyone could ever ask for..(Christina, much love and many hugs for your constant support and help)...I can honestly say that Christina taught me EVERYTHING that I know about cardmaking..about Copics...about all of the innuendoes... and had so much confidence in me and supported me so much in every card that I ever made....I don't think I would be the contributor I am today without her input!!!!!
So with that, I offer the first of my Anniversary SWEET STUFFS as a thanks to Christina...and more later throughout this month to include the fantastic teams and GDTs that I have been a part of....smiles!!!!!

To my fantastic FOLLOWERS I offer the following SWEET STUFF of Spa Enjoyment and Magnolias and hope you will enjoy it!! I would love for you to share the opportunity with your blogging friends!! Please leave your info with with Mr Blue Froggy (or place your info in a comment if you don't have a blog) before Sunday, April 10, at midnight EST to be eligible!! Be on the lookout for lots of SWEET STUFFs during this month of celebration for ME!!!!! Good luck to everyone!!

Charlotte said...

Congratulations on your upcoming year "blog-a-versary"! I've only recently discovered you (as I've only recently discovered blogging - b/c I've been in Kenya for 10 years serving as a missionary), and I am in awe of the cards you create! They are absolutely gorgeous (including your first card)! I started making cards in Kenya (as you couldn't buy cards there) but they were definitely elementary in comparison. Being relatively computer-illiterate, I don't have a blog and I don't know how to be a "follower" but I've been visiting your site every day since I've found you, and you never cease to amaze me with your creativity! Thank you for sharing your talent with those of us who are less gifted! Also, you're in my thoughts and prayers as you approach your survivor appointment.

Danielle said...

OMG Dear Jacque, ouf.... let me take my breath back. TOTALLY GORGEOUS card. So feminine, so girlie, so precious. I love it all. Lace and flowers, pastel colors, everything a girl wants! Tilda is so cute, wonderfully colored.
Congratulations on your 2nd blog-anniversary. You are a source of inspiration for all of us, and I am grateful every day for meeting you, and have you in my life. Your work of heart and art is a source of motivation to always do our very best.I would like to join you in paying Christina a tribute. She has a very precious place in my heart and in my life, I can also say that without her confidence and kindness, I would not be where I am, and who I am. She is an angel. Thanks to Life and the miracle of the web who can bring us all together. Sunshine from Montreal, Hugs & LOve

Hi Jacque~

I may have missed the cut off for your fantastic blog-o-versary, but thank you for these wonderful months that I have had visiting you almost every day. I have always left more inspired...more hopeful...more cheerful...and feeling as if I have a friend in you...and hoping I am a friend to you!

Thank you for all that you do for us. Your generosity and selflessness is an incredible example for everyone. It is an on-going reminder to myself. For this, I am also grateful.

I also want to thank you for reminding us to have fun, enjoy what we are doing, and to get my Vitamin out in the sun! Your cheerfulness is contagious, Sunshine! Thank you for sharing all of your amazing cards, in which you put so much time and love and care.

You are an amazing person!
He IS Able,
Traci Starkweather
