I feel much, much better...and now I know my sweet friend Bev from the UK is there safe and sound.....and I know my friend Suzan, along with her magnificent hubby Mike, are awaiting me, I am READY!!!!!!! Gosh, that reminds me that I must show you a picture of what Mike made for me for Christmas this year.....whew...it's beautiful!!!! I will be leaving on Sunday and back home on Friday so I am trying to decide what to do for all of you sweeties while I am away!!!! Any ideas???? SWEET STUFF everyday???? hmmmmmmmm I may not have cards....but let's try to help Jacque with her duplicates???? Good idea??? AND as soon as I get home....guess what!!!! I have reached the 4000 FOLLOWERS mark and that means a SUPER DUPER SWEET STUFF, doesn't it???? Gosh I can't wait!!!!!! and I already know part of it...and you will LOVE it!!!! woooohoooo!!!!
This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we have been treated to a splendid sketch from the marvelously talented Jane who is hosting this week. Thank you so much, Jane, for the lovely and fun sketch!!!! Please come over and join in with us because there are wonderful prizes available for some lucky participants!!!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Maja Designs Life in the Country Paper Pad, and all panels are machine stitched. I used the darling little Lollipop Tilda from Magnolia-licious which is not in stock at the moment--this tells us how popular the latest collection is!!!! So many little darlings!!! She was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles to the lace and Xmas Red Stickles to the lollipop. For the horizontal I used some 1/2" Red Satin Ribbon tied into a double flat bow. The floral treatment is all by Wild Orchid Crafts: Red Poppies, Cherry Blossoms, Carnations, Sweetheart Blossoms, and Heather. To satisfy the sentiment requirement I used a MM metal/rhinestone LOVE sign.
The inside is VERY simple because I wanted all of the lovely contrasting Maja papers to show...adding just a ribbon with a LOVE button and a red doily.
Gosh!! I hope you like my little creation and will decide to join with us over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge this week!! We would love to see your interpretation of Jane's lovely sketch!!
