Mini Magnolia Easel Card!

Hello my blogging friends! I really wanted to get a new card up and posted yesterday but it just wasn’t happening. My jaw is better but still pulsing here and there, thank you to those of you who wished me a speedy recovery.

This card I made for the Fussy and Fancy get together this past Saturday. My flowers on the bottom came off so I put them back on and I added a few more, and a charm to fit some Challenges in. I have been wanting to make one of these little easel cards, I’ve been inspired by so many. I had the hardest time with this card! It took me hours to do and lots of paper changing. This was the outcome and my friends seemed to like it, so I was happy camper!

I just wanted to remind everyone you have until the 30th of April to enter in the Magnolia-licious Right Through My Heart Contest! There will be a Random Winner and a card chosen by Diana will win the Grand Prize!!!

I’m working on a huge post for Saturday May 1st, I will have a few cards and lots of info too, so I may not get an update in for the rest of the week, we’ll see though!

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Whiff of Joy Challenge 76.

Hello, hope you are all having a great week so far! I am getting my last wisdom tooth out tomorrow, yay me. I only got the top right out on Friday. The bottom one is where they have to cut the bone so it’s harder to get out and a longer recovery. I’m so busy this week, sitting down to do this post is the first I’ve sat down in 2 days. On Saturday it’s out Fussy and Fancy get together so I’m preparing the projects for that, plus my design team commitments, my dentist appointment on top of “mom” stuff. Being a SAHM and full time crafter is work I’ll tell ya! But I enjoy it!

This week over at Whiff of Joy we have a fabulous sketch by the one and only Bev Rochester! I love how simple the sketch is it makes room for lots of layers and embellishments! I did something I miss and haven’t done in a while, I water colored Melinda. Boy do I miss doing that! I will need to get some new colors. I just used my plain ole SU inks and aqua painters. Oh and don’t you love the little Zva Crystals on her headband and dress!!!

I will be back Friday with our Fussy and Fancy Challenge!

Happy Friday to all of my fellow blogging friends! I’m really happy I was able to make a card today I wasn’t sure I was going to have enough time, although I’m running a little behind. My kids get out early Friday’s and I have a dentist appointment to get my other 2 wisdom teeth removed. Fun Fun!
