Just Magnolias... a wonderful Sketch!

Hi! Friday again and that means Just Magnolias has a new challenge! And this week DT Mina drew us up a fabulous sketch to work with! Now I know I probably should have done a winter.. or Christmas card - it is a week before the big day - but I will be honest. A tooth ache and all day trying to do my very late Christmas shopping ( I am usually completely finished and wrapped by now... just started today!!!!) Anyway, I was so blah about things I wanted something bright and cheerful and well Spring like! LOL So I pulled out one of my all time favorite paper pads - DCWV Nanna's Baby Girl Nursery and went to work with a smile.. that paper just makes me happy what can I say! LOL

So with all the pink and green in mind, I colored up one of my Tilda's that had not seen any ink yet - Isn't it wonderful.. horrible day - and pretty papers and my Copics just make things ok! I colored away matching to the papers, then cut her out with my Nesties - layered up my pattern papers and sewed them together. I found a pretty pink ribbon and tied it to the right, as the sketch showed. And mulberry roses for the the circles on the sketch to the right. The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with my Fiskar's circle squeeze punch. Oh and the leaves are Martha Stewart Frond leaf punches. - It isn't Christmas... but it really make me happy and colored away a really tiring long day -

Now for some truly beautiful holiday cards using Mina's sketch.. oh and the sketch itself - Pop on over to the Just Magnolia's Challenge and join in on the fun! FABULOUS prize again this week! 

Today I am out again ... fighting the crowds and trying to get more of my gifts - :0) HO HO HO... back in the Spirit!

HUGS and
