Tis Autumn in the Pumpkin Patch and Maggie Baggie SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Friday to each of you!! I hope you are having a marvelous week and have accomplished all that you wished! I also hope you all have a fantastic weekend!! Gosh it is beginning to feel like autumn here in these mountains--I love the warm days and chilly evenings!!! And sooner than later, all of the leaf-lookers will be invading to see the beauty of the Blue Ridge for sure!!
Today is our new challenge at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and I would love for you to join in with us this week because I am hosting and have a sketch with a FALL IS IN THE AIR theme!!! Gosh I can't wait to see you there with your lovely creations!! There are TWO wonderful prizes this week, so this may just be your lucky week!!!! We have a £ 10 Voucher at Dies To Die For AND a wonderful set of Promarkers Brights from Letraset. Nobody could resist those fabulous prizes so come on over!!!
For my DT card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from Hello Fall by Best Creations, and all background panels are machine stitched. Those papers are soooo glittery--just love them!! The darling little hÄnglar Pumpkin Girl was stamped twice on XPress-It Blending Card and the little girl was cut out so that she could be propped up for more dimension. The image was colored with a combo of Copics and Promarkers and cut out with triple Oval Nesties. The bow is made of Wild Orchid Crafts Raffia Ribbon adding some WOC Sunflower/Daisy Flowers and a silver rake and leaves charm. To finish the front I used several buttons...Indian Corn, pumpkins, and a gourd.
The inside is very simple so that the glittery paper would show. On the first panel I used a Catslife Press Autumn stamp along with some more raffia bows, sunflowers, and button.
I hope you like my little card and will go have a peek at the absolutely wonderful cards made by the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge Design Team using my simple sketch!!! They are stunningly gorgeous!!
And now, because I am hosting this week, I wanted to have a little surprise for my FOLLOWERS!!!! So.....
MAGGIE BAGGIE SWEET STUFF!! I made 4 little gift bags filled with some Maggie delights!!! So this week there will be 4 winners!!! I found these little fabric bags in a shop here and decorated them very simply with some MINI Maggies!! All you have to do is leave a comment below and on Sunday, September 18 at midnight EST I will let Mr Random.org select 4 names. Each little bag is different but they each contain a couple of spa treatments, a regular size Tilda stamp, a pack of Magnolia flowers, a pack of ribbon, and a pack of rhinestones. Kinda fun, huh? Good luck!!!!
NOTE: I had several emails asking to see a better picture of the little Maggie Baggies so hope this is better...I am no photographer!! lol But I hope you can see another very cute and simple way to use those darling MINI MAGGIES...
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!! And Sunday there is another wonderful surprise at SUNDAY SENSATIONS!!! Until the next time, I send big hugs for YOU!!!
