I am really happy the weekend is here, it's been a long, rough week. But I have enjoyed having the kids home on vacation and will be sad to see school start on Monday. We have my son's first baseball game this weekend and then a night out with family planned for Saturday. Other than that, hopefully some down time to relax and de-stress! Hope you have a great weekend of fun things planned too.
Today, I have 2 cards to share with you. I wasn't sure if I would get both of my DT cards done, but as it turned out the crafting time was really just want I needed. So first I will share my card for this week's Just Magnolia challenge. And boy is this an easy challenge....it's anything goes! And as long as it has a Magnolia image, you can create anything at all and be entered to win a fabulous prize from Wild Orchid Crafts!
Ann sent me and went with a monochromatic color combo in neutrals. I colored the image with Copics and the used the Whimsy Stamps Postmark stamp to add some postmark details. I actually CASED this paper combo and postmark idea from Erin and her beautiful card from last week. The papers are SU! Bella Blue with the Kraft tones. The edges were stitched on the sewing machine. The sketch is from this week's Everybody Art Challenge. I finished off with these gorgeous gardenias and roses from Wild Orchids and some lace ribbon and flat backed pearls.
This card also fits the challenge at:
Just Add Ink: Vintage
Next, I have my card for this week's Stamp Something challenge which is Charmed Somethings. We'd like to see you use charms on your project, you can use a pre-bought one or create your own. Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe Crafts and Nikki has a fabulous selection of charms in her shop!
Cute Card Thursday this week. I've distressed the edges and then embellished with pearls, gems, a heart pin, ribbon, flowers, and a dragonfly charm.
This card fits the challenges at:
Pile It On: Spring (I think a frog on the head is a great sign of Spring!)
Totally Gorjuss: Charming
Thanks for stopping on by today. I hope you have a fabulous weekend! See you all next week!
