Tis Planting Time at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge



Happy Friday, everyone!!! I hope you have had a most enjoyable week and are ready for a magnificent weekend!!!! It looks as though the rains are over here and it's outside and play, play, play and plant, plant, plant for me!!!! Gosh, that's what I have been awaiting for months!!! But I can tell you that the roses are starting to peek some color out so it won't be long until they are blooming...which will make Jacque a happy girl!!!!

This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge we are being hosted by Deb who has given us the theme of Pastel/Spring Colors...and that was so much fun and right up my alley!!!! Those are my very favorite colors for sure....There is also a very nice prize to be given to some lucky participant so come on over and join in with us to see if this is your lucky week!!!

I made a Criss-cross card using Bazzill for the base and matting and the DP is from the Pink Paislee London Market Paper Stack...and I think these papers are so lovely!!! I used a sweet little hÄnglar & stÄnglar image which was stamped on X-Press It and colored with Copics and Flexmarkers and cut out with Petite Oval and Petite Scalloped Oval Nesties. The image was stamped 3 times and you can probably tell that the head and flower tray were cut out separately and propped up for added dimension. I edged each side of the criss-cross with white flat lace. I used some Recollection Pearl Trim for each side and the bows are made from WOC Satin Ribbon with a 5/8" Open Rose, and 1/4" Closed Rosebuds.



This pic gives you an idea of the little pullout for writing a sweet message!!

I hope you like my little creation and will decide to jump on over and join in with us at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge this week. We would love to see your wonderful creations using Pastel/Springtime Colors!!!

SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!!!




I have an extra Flower Soft Floral Bouquet Color Selection Box which has 7 different colors of Flower Soft and I would love to share it with one of my FOLLOWERS. All you have to do is leave a comment before Sunday, April 22, at midnight EST in order to be in for the draw! Good Luck!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you will want to come by often! Have a lovely weekend and enjoy each moment!!! Until we meet again, I send big hugs!!!

HI Jacque~

Sorry I have been away for a couple of days. We are having all-day long horrific storms here in FL. It's much to early for this! The computers get zapped if we don't unplug everything. So, during a few moments of calm, I wanted to say hello, and let you know that prayers are being lifted up for your upcoming appointment.

This card is beautiful! I love the layout. The colors are lovely. As are the pearls! But, this image is amazing! I am sure it will be a favorite among the collections. I love that precious little rose on the smaller bow! This is a wonderful card.

Jacque, I love Flower Soft! I only have a couple of colors, but would LOVE to use this set at home. As you know, you can do amazing things with it! I am amazed that you are giving it away! Please put me in the drawing for it. Thank you so much!

He IS Able!
