Some big news!!!

Hello my sweet friends. I’m so excited today, I was asked by Bev if I wanted to stay on the Just Magnolia Design team as a permanent design team member! Of course I accepted right away! So YAY ME!!! Thank you Bev. (((HUGS)))

Yesterday I also got an email from Paul, the owner of Wild Orchard Crafts, asking if I would like to join their Design Team! I was so excited I was trying to read the email on my phone and I was jumping up and down, I probably looked like an idiot, but I dont care! I'm one happy gal! Check out the Wild Orchard Crafts Blog too!

Here’s my card for Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy. Just Magnolia’s theme is Garden. I knew I wanted to use Tilda holding Lamb. I tried using the #3031 TILDA AS SHEPHERD but my it wasn’t coming out so I started coloring this image and loved the way it came out. I can just picture Tilda walking in her garden with her little lamb! Fussy and Fancy’s challenge is Monochomatic and something with wings. I went a little fuzz happy on this card. My lamb is fuzzy and so is my butterfly.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Dont forget to stop by the Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash tomorrow for another fun challenge!
