Things are Hopping at Just Magnolias One Year Celebration!

Can you believe that Just Magnolias is one year old? Time flies when you are having fun doesn't it!

So to help celebrate we are having a hop of sorts - So please at the end of my post visit the next DT member on the hop and see their work, once following the hop around you will find a wonderful prize at the end!!

Our cards and projects this week are all Thank You's - thank you to all of our visitors, followers, and those that join in on our challenges each week. And also a thank you for all of our sponsers, this week as many of our weeks :0) it is Simon Says Stamps!!! We love the gals at Simon Says, Heidi and her group of little angels are wonderful aren't they?   So a huge shout out thank you to them as well!

Want to see my thank you now?


I had some fun with roses huh? LOL I love these papers from Tilda - (I don't think there is a connection, just the same name as our favorite little no mouthed angel girl) I can't get them here in the US, but a very sweet friend in Europe sent me some, and I just adore them. And I only use them for very special projects :0)   I had to use Tilda with the single rose for this one. I colored her with my Copics - cut out with oval Nesties, matted with pink card stock and then sewed down with a blanket stitch. I left the rose up and out of the nestie - to make it pop a bit more.  My sentiment is from Stampavie Rachelle Anne Miller, and cut out with a Nestie label die, with a few more bling and mulberry roses on each side.

You can also see that I used my Large Martha Stewart punch for the lace border across the middle. And used some bling for the centers of all the lace flower centers.

Now what do you think of my "luggage"? LOVE it, ok so it is small, I thought it would be larger, but these sizzix dies are so cute I am still happy with it. I have "packed" it with lots of kisses - the really wonderful kind.. chocolate kisses!

Now it is time for you make the jump to the next DT member in our HOP ... so HOP on over to DAWNY P and see her wonderful Thank you!!! and then follow the road to the prize :0)

Have a wonderful Friday!!! See you tomorrow for Animal Crackers!
