Today I Just Magnolia's day! And it is a wonderful sketch by DT member
Mina, you can rotate the sketch and re size the elements, as long as you follow the original sketch so your entry qualifies for the prize draw. And a great prize again this week! This week our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who have kindly offered a $25 voucher to spend in their store!!
For my card I was very excited that my Magnolia Fall Stamp Club stamps arrived this week, and I actually got a chance to play with them! Cute images or what? These are all part of the kit except the strawberry.. that is from I believe last years summer kit.
I colored everything with my Copics and cut out. Following the sketch I used the fruit as my circles - All of the pattern papers are from DCWV Nanna's Kitchen - love that stack, which the patterns with the more kitchen things would have worked better with this card but they were too large of patterns. OH well I loved these together. I used a Fiskars Border punch on both sides of one of the glitter patterns to create the bands and sewed everything together with straight stitches.
I love how it turned out... had a hard time coming up with a sentiment to fit on the rolling pen.. so I just hand wrote Hello...
Sorry I have been "short" lately... even my sister commented that I have not been as chatty and upbeat as normal on here.. I think loosing Cheyenne effected me more than I knew - then the lack of sleep and trying to keep up with the rest of life, work, Hubby home working on my craft room and again all of those 2-3 hour feedings. It was really getting to me - I had started to feel a bit better the past couple of days and was getting back into a grove again.. then yesterday hit -
I have another Momma donkey and baby sick.... Macey and Felicia - Same symptoms as Cheyenne and Sergio... Doc is coming out this morning, I just pray we have caught it in time, as it was too late for Cheyenne. We now think it was the hay that made them sick. LONG story but due to no rain we had to purchase hay from a long way away and have it trucked in - more than 1/2 of it is bad... real bad - Hubby is going to deal with the man that sold it to us tonight. It really isn't his fault he didn't grow it... but he did sell it to us - so I hope he makes things ok.. not that he can bring back Cheyenne. I'll let you know how things go -
I just hope you all understand why I haven't been commenting and popping around to all the blogs the past couple of weeks - At some point things have to get better - and saving Macey and Felicia will be a great start for me. Thanks for understanding...
