Just Magnolias Mina's Sketch!

Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY! and Friday means Just Magnolias - this week it is a sketch by our wonderful DT member Mina! I loved using this sketch -

And this week I decided it was time for Edwin to come out and party... so he dressed up and was ready to be shown off! He is colored with my Copics and then high lighted with white gel pen. Following the sketch I cut him out with my Nestibilites - then doodled the edge of the oval.

My cards starts with a black card stock, then matted with a grey. My pattern papers are all from SEI - don't you just love all the pink, grey and black together? It is almost as pretty as pink and brown together.
I found two ribbons and stacked them on top of each other for the band across the middle. For my flowers I used the two sizes of EK Success Retro flower punches. I used the pattern papers from the SEI collection and inked the edges with a light grey ink. Jewelry spacers and black mini brads complete the flowers. The sentiment is a Bubble sticker from Hobby Lobby.

Now you must pop over to the Just Magnolias Challenge the other DT have really rocked Mina's sketch and again this week there is a great prize!!

Today is MIL shopping day - we are getting her ready for her vacation. She is going traveling with Hubby's brother this next week and she has a list a mile long of what she needs to take with her.

Oh and thank you for all the well wishes for Freddie and Pavo this week. - they are doing great and by this afternoon will be let back into the big pen with all the other youth donkeys... less their testosterone... LOL

So what do you have planned for the weekend? Me.. well it is all up in the air -Hubby might have the weekend off and if he does, there goes my plans.. LOL But that is ok, cuz he needs the time off, once his brother and family leave for vacation he will have two weeks straight no days off.

Have a great Friday!
HUGS and-
