Life is Better...at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge



A very happy Friday to everyone!! I hope you have had a marvelous week and are looking forward to an even better weekend. Amazingly, most weekends are always better!!! We have had an unbelievable amount of rain BUT we are supposed to have a beautiful weekend...and I can't wait!!!

This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge I am hosting with what I hope is a sketch you will really enjoy, so I would love for you to come on over and join in with us and show us how you would use the sketch below:



For my card I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting and the DP is from the Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics paper pad. I also used an embossed frame for the panel behind the cute image. She is Tilda with Blue Blanket and is on pre-order at Magnolia-licious and should be in store very soon. She was stamped on X-Press It, colored with Copics and Promarkers and cut out with petite oval nesties. For the vertical I used some gathered organza trim with satin ribbon tied into a double flat bow. The flowers are all from my stash and the sentiment is an epoxy label. Pearls finish the upper corner.

SWEET STUFF for my FOLLOWERS!!
I found this extra set of Autumn Leaves Word Flourishes that I would love for one of my FOLLOWERS to have. Of course I will also add some embellies, ribbons, flowers, etc to the package!! So if you would like to be in the draw on Sunday, May 20 at midnight EST, just sign in with the Little Blue Froggy. If you don't have a blog just skip over the URL request and you will also be included.

Thank you so very much for coming by and I would love to see you join with us this week at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge. There is a very nice prize for some lucky participant! Have a marvelous weekend, and until the next time, I send big hugs!!!

Hi Jacque~

I just love the white and blue combo for a girl image. There is something special sweet about it. The white is all so soft and delicate. The blue must represent a boyfriend who broke her heart! I digress. LOL

Hope you had the perfect weather for your weekend and your roses. My sister gave me some beautiful roses lately. They were each a combo of Vintage old yellow, and a hot pink. The colors swirled through-out them...just gorgeous. I kept thinking of you. How are your roses growing?

I love the sweet says on these flourishes. Would you please include me in this "Sweet Stuff" give away? Thanks!

He IS Able!
