Mushrooms and Daisies at Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge


A very happy Friday to everyone!!! I hope you have had a magnificent week and are as ready for a great weekend as I am. I have a terrible cold but I try my best not to let that stop me from everything that needs to be done....but as a non-medicine taker, the Nyquil just puts me right to sleep and gives me an out of body feeling. Hey wait!!! That may be a good thing!!! hahahha And hey!!! Another sign of progress....my bathroom may be completed next week along with some new gas logs in my fireplace!!!! Things are looking UP!!!

This week at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge our theme is ANYTHING GOES with the option of using fabric on our creations...and yes, ribbon does count as fabric....so I am in this time!!!! And you know there is always wonderful prizes on the challenge so I hope you will pop right on over and join in with us so we can see your magnificent creations!!

I made a very simple card this time using Bazzill for the base and all double matting and DP from the MME Gnome Sweet Gnome collection. The darling image is Tilda with Daisies and Mushrooms from Magnolia-licious. She was colored with Copics and Flexmarkers adding some gold beads for buttons on her overalls and some white dots to the mushrooms in her basket. For the vertical I used some stitched red grosgrain ribbon tied into a double flat bow to dangle a silver mushroom charm and to anchor some sweet little dotted mushrooms like the ones on the DP. The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts: Cosmos Daisies and Carnations sprinkled with a few more dotted red mushrooms. These Fly Agarics mushrooms appear on cards from around the world as a symbol of good luck...this from Wikipedia!!!!

Thank you so much for dropping by today and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until we meet again, I send BIG HUGS!!!

Hi Jacque,
well it sounds like things are moving on for you, I hope all will be back to normal soon.
As a 24/7 meds taker (spinal injuries) I often have that high feeling and often absolutely hate them too as I cannot concerntrate, but at night I don't mind as they usually don't bother my sleep.
I adore you card even though you say it is simple. It is beautifully coloured and I adore the little extra touches you have used (mushrooms... hey don't they make you high too. LOL! I have never used them I promise, but I have heard. lol!)
Have a good weekend Linda xx
