Happy Monday everyone! Here's to another super busy week, lol! Hope you had an awesome weekend! I got a bunch of stuff done & got to do some relaxin' so I'm happy. I had to work on a project that is being published yesterday and it was sooo stressful that I thought I was going to have an anxiety attack---so much pressure! Anywho, my brain is still recovering so onto my projects & news for today!
I made this Magnolia card a bit ago and I believe the layout was a SCS sketch challenge (?). This is "Tilda with Gingerbread" and I believe I got her from the Swedish site or was a gift from a friend (can you tell I'm having brain-freeze,lol). Anywho, she's from this past Christmas Collection and I think she's perfect for Valentine's Day or anyday that calls for love! Easy peasy card to put together---the dp is Basic Grey's "Blush", the buttons are from Michaels and I used "mint" Shimmerz on the background & her dress. The flower is by Bazzill and these are supercool---they come in white & other fun colors and you can ink them, paint them or stamp on top of them. I inked mine with Memento ink and then painted them with Shimmerz in the mint & pink poinsettia. Finished it off with another heart button tied with my favorite Scrappers Floss! The cute sentiment is from SUINK's "Will You be My Valentine" set!
NOTE: Magnolia-licious has the new Valentine Collection coming in and there are also a few Christmas Magnolia's with hearts that would work wonderfully for Valentines Day too!
WARNING---YOU NEED YOUR SUNGLASSES TO VIEW--LOL!! How's that for a bright birthday card? With all the gray & dreary weather we've been having, I thought I needed some "sun", hee hee! I've had these fun papers from Doodlebug Designs for awhile and wanted to use them on a monochromatic card! This is another fun image from the new "Party Animal" line from Whiff of Joy--this is "Molly Celebrating Sheep", isn't she a cutie-pop! The layout is from last week's Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog--simple and sweet. The corner embellishments are SEI white buttons with glitterdots on top. I added a bunch of stickles to the presents for some extra sparkle too!
Make sure and visit Katharina's blog for a SNEAK PEEK of a new special "SPRING STAMP KIT" that you can now pre-order on the main store site. All 10 of the stamps are by Elisabeth Bell & I assure they are all gorgeous. Whiff of Joy will be offering these kits 4 times a year and they are a GREAT VALUE---10 stamps for $37 and soooooo worth it! You can pre-order today until January 26th---after that date you can no longer order the kit, so if you want it go & order NOW!
See ya tomorrow!
