I’m back and with fantastic news!!

Well, I’m all moved in, unpacked and already made a card and it’s only been a week since I’ve moved. I had some problems getting my internet turned on but it’s finally on!!!!

I have some great news to share with you. I was asked to be a Guest Design Team member for Magnolia-licious for 6 months! I’m so excited about it, Thanks so much Diana for asking. I’m so honored!

This is a sketch for the Magnolia-licious Highlights blog. It’s an adorable sketch from Jacque Beddingfield . I had a great time with the sketch and being able to choose where I want to put the embellishments.

Here’s a list of other challenges I’ve fit into this card:

Magnolia-licious – Sketch

Cupcake Craft – Round

Papertake Weekly – Buttons, Bow, Brads, Bling

Quixotic – Leaves

Craft Challenge – Mothers Day/Flowers

Supplies:

Stamps: #384 JAM TILDA, Stampin up sentiment

Ink: Copics, Memento Black

Paper is Stampin up and My Minds Eye

Embellishments: ZVA and Prima roses, butterfly Martha Stewart punch, misc butterfly brads, diamond stickles, misc. ribbon and doily.

It’s so nice to be back online and STAMPING!!!!!
