Just Magnolias and Hanglars - SPRINGTIME!

Isn't it wonderful??? Well I hope it is where you are, here in Texas it is SPRINGTIME! And I am totally loving it! We have had LOTS of spring babies as well and that is just another reason for me to love Spring :0) Yes, more babies... a set of triplets and a set of Quads! I'll have lots of photos on Saturday :0)

But for today I have my Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge card. And the theme is Springtime. Colors, or flowers what ever that means to you. Me it was both. I just got in a few new Magnolia images from Magnolia-licious. Man super fast shipping!

When I saw the new stamp "Tilda's Heartflowers" I HAD to have it. Just love it, and the adorable heart petals.
 Now first off you may notice this is card that isn't square. Shocker huh? Yes, since I have been asked to make up some cards for a local gift shop, I decided that I needed to make up some other sizes of cards. Especially cards that don't cost extra postage here. Love those square cards, but they do have to have that extra few stamps :0) - So here is a 5x7 card. I used a couple different pattern papers. A scrap of a Graphic 45 paper, then two patterns for October Afternoon. I sewed the layers together with a fun zig zag stitch.

My image is colored with my Copics - then I used Viva Decor Pearl Pens to high light and add some shine. Love those things! They are too cool, I just wish I could have all the colors... maybe someday :0)  The border die is from Papertrey Ink, loved how it sort of looks like the flowers. I added a pink dotted satin ribbon, also Papertrey Ink, and then three buttons. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.

And look I did the inside too - so proud that is three cards in a row for me! Need to make it a habit then it won't seem like extra to me, right?

Now head on over to the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challenge and see all the Springtime inspiration, then join us for another great chance at a prize this week.

Make sure to visit tomorrow - LOTS and LOTS of baby kid photos! Have a great Friday!
HUGS and-
