A Magnolia Spring Card

Hello, my wonderful blogging buddies! I hope you had a Happy Easter. Mine was great. We had a nice Ham dinner at my Aunts house. We celebrated Easter, My Nana’s 91st Birthday and my Nana and Papa’s 73rd Wedding Anniversary! I seriously do not know how they have spent THAT long together. They are truly a life inspiration.

I haven’t stamped in a while, at least it feels that way. I still cannot get enough of this Magnolia Easter Collection, I stamped this image at our Fussy and Fancy Tea Party last weekend. I got the image from Jennifer, Thank you so much I just love her! I absolutely love the way this card came out. I got the idea from a card I saw and now I cannot remember where from. :(

Hope you all have a wonderful week.

Thank you Sharon for helping me remember where I got the idea from. I got the idea from the ever so talented Suzanne, here's her card .

Oh, so very pretty. Love all the little details.

Sharon Caudle said...

Beautiful card, Mindy! I love all the different stamps you used for it and the colors and your coloring are fabulous! You probably got the idea from Suzanne as that's how she made her DT challenge card this month. She called it a peek-a-boo card (I think that's what she called it). Anyway, it's beautful and I love it! Great job!

Jennifer said...

That card is perfect. I love it! I haven't even used that stamp yet. You did it wonders.
