THANK YOU, EVERYONE!! for Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge



Happy Friday everyone!!! I hope that you have all had a magnificent week because I can assure you that mine was SPECTACULAR!!! And gosh...it's weekend...so let's all have a wonderful weekend, too!!! I know I intend to!!!

Today starts a new week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge where we are being hosted by the very talented and sweet Donalda who has invited us to play a fun game of BINGO!! So come on over and play this fun game along with us--we would love to see your wonderful creations!! There are two fabulous prizes this week from two of our wonderful sponsors: Crafts U Love and The Ribbon Girl!

For my card this week I wanted to make it a special one to thank each of YOU!!!! The base and all matting is Bazzill and the beautiful DP is from the EP Victoria Gardens Paper Pad, which was a gift from the sweet Donalda!! Thank you so much, Sweetie!!! All panels are machine stitched. You can tell that I wanted as much of this lovely paper to show as possible! I love it!!! This Magnolia image is a very special one to me and one which I have had for a very long time--not knowing just how special it would become to me!! This is actually 2 stamps: little Tilda and a seperate pink ribbon stamp. She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics, adding a wee bit of Star Dust Stickles to her wings. For the horizontal I used some gorgeous iridescent lace which was a gift from Suzan--thank you so very much, hon!!! I then added a double bow made with exquisite 32mm Silk Ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made a small bouquet to match the one Tilda is holding using handmade script paper wrapping some 5mm Mulberry Rose Buds. The tiny tag and sentiment are SU. I finished the front with WOC Self Adhesive Pearls.



The inside is very simple but with my fondest of thoughts for each of YOU!!! If you can't read my message just click on the above photo and it will enlarge enough for you to read!

Thank you so much for dropping by today and I hope you will want to come by for a visit often!! It is always such a joy to know that you were here! Have a great weekend and I will be back real soon!! Saturday starts the SNEAKY PEEKS for the next launch of darling Christmas stamps from LOTV and I know you don't want to miss them!! And Sunday there is another wonderful surprise at SUNDAY SENSATIONS!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs for YOU!!!

Dear Jacque~

What a sweet and kind thing for you to do. It is us, that thank you for every post you share, every detail of both your cards and your life that you share with us. Your message made me start my day in happy tears. I am glad that you get some support and joy from our visits, and all of the work you put into your blog.

I LOVE this card. That Victorian Rose paper is STUNNING! And, I love that Tilda with your roses...and the "hope" symbol. You have really made this a very special card. It seems to have touched all of our hearts judging by the comments above.

Praying everyone will be safe this weekend, with Hurricane Irene. At least it will give us an opportunity to make cards if we are indoors! Many blessings to you, Jacque! You are an amazing person, indeed!

He IS Able!

It is YOU we honor and admire for your perseverance and strength, you have taught us more than crafting a card. Your card is beautiful, inside and out!

Oh what a very beautiful and special card. It has really been a pleasure on my part to see you come through from the deepest of despair to flourish again, you give an awful lot of hope to a whole lot of people I am sure without really realising you are doing it.
Keep strong and forever thrive and bloom.

Juliep said...

Jacqui, there isn't much that i can say that others before me haven't said by those before me. I'm so happy that you're doing so well. I've been following your journey for almost a year now and whether you realize it or not, your courage and strength has helped me through so many difficult days since losing my daughter. Your stories and positive attitude never cease to amaze me and your stunning cards have put a smile on my face when I didn't think that was even possible.

So thank you for this blog. May everyday continue to be everything you want it to be. Hugs

Jenée said...

Jacqui, I was so excited to read your wonderful news. Being a breast cancer survivor myself (over 6 years now), I understood the impact and emotions those few words had on you. Just a few words, one way or another, can make such a big difference to everyone with cancer. Your little Tilda is so charming, and your card is lovely (as always). I am doing cart-wheels (like you, only in my mind) for you!

So wonderful to hear your news.
Your card is beautiful.

Rufus said...

Jacque, you don't need to thank us (or at least me). Instead I thank you for all the inspiration. Both crafty and personal. You are an amazing lady and I'm just thrilled that your news was so very good. As a lucky winner of one of your many Sweet Stuffs I can also vouch for how very very generous you are! As always your card is lovely.
Thank you,
