I'm so so so late ahhh! I've had such a hectic week with Doctors appointments for all the kiddos, everyone being sick and also a couple ER trips for one of the boys with an ear infection. Everyone is feeling a little better today including the one with ear infection thankfully! Hoping next week will be a bit slower and this nasty cold will go away!
Anyways...we have a new challenge for you this week at "Sketch Saturday"! And if the wonderful Saturday DT girls didn't inspire you enough already with their amazing creations...here is a little more inspiration from me with my late, late entry...
Here is Jo's awesome sketch which I flipped on it's side!
And this week we are sponsored by our friends at "Simon Says Stamp"!
And this weeks prize as always is a very generous $25 gift certificate...
which will be awarded to one very lucky winner!!
I purchased a few magnolia stamps a couple years ago and never got around to using them...I know...I'm a craft hoarder, LOL! I was inspired to break them out and finally get them inked up and colored in because a blogging buddy of mine "Cor*" just started on a brand new Magnolia Challenge DT called "Midweek Magnolias"! Looked like fun and I figured if I actually start using the very few Magnolia stamps I have and may have a chance at winning some more!! :)~
The adorable little Tilda I used for my card today is called "Sweet Tilda" and can be found here. The sentiment is from "MFT" along with the coordinating label die that I used for the end of the tag!
All flowers, pearls and the crystal stem are from "WOC"! The gorgeous sparkling pink and green fabric bauble are from the "Recollections" brand of embellishments. I sparkled the flowers and the image very lightly with Stickles...which I'm proud of cause I usually go a little crazy with that stuff...lol!
While looking for Magnolia challenges to play along with, I also came across "Magnolia-Licious Highlites" and their theme this month is to make a card that 'Moves and Grooves'. So I kept that in mind while stitching the middle panel together to leave a space for a tag to be slipped in and out of the side! I think it turned out really cute! I decided not to make this a traditional folded card, since I added the tag which both the front and back can be used for a personal message. So my card has no inside today! I guess you could call it a card topper? lol.
