Friday's Just Magnolias!

Hello and Happy Friday! Wow this week went really fast! It is already Friday again and that is Just Magnolia's day! This week we have a wonderful sketch by DT member Mina!

I decided Edwin needed to come out and play.. and dug really deep into my Magnolias to find him fishing on the pier. I colored him with my Copics and then cut him out with my Nesties.

I followed the sketch using pattern papers from My Minds Eye - and then used red and cream gingham ribbon for all of the bands. I have really been using a lot of gingham lately :0) - Do you do that where you get on a kick for something and use it over and over then it goes away? Oh well.. love the ribbon!

For the "dots" on the bottom of the sketch I used fish charms! They are sewed thru the card with twine.I figured as long as Edwin was fishing he might as well have them lining up to be caught. All thought Hubby said they must already be dead floating up right like that! Men... LOL For the dots at the top I found three red buttons that actually matched.. that is a biggie in my button jar!

I kept it kind of simple cuz I figured this would be a good "man" card... so no foo foo items on it.

Hope you will pop over to the Just Magnolia's site and see the rest of the DT cards! Really amazing as always! and another great prize :0)

Gotta run... we are thinking we might have to close up the side of the addition and knock the hole thru into the house sooner than planned as the humidity is so high it will start to mess with the sheet rock... sigh... man Libbie is gonna be a nightmare keeping her out of there! My little dare devil gets into everything and tries to eat anything she finds... I need an alarm to go off when ever she gets to this end of the house! And man.. I can only imagine what the house is going to look like later today if he does hammer thru!!! AHHH

HUGS and have a great Friday!

I love the charms! They just give the card that little something extra without being too fussy.

Oh Michelle, you did make me chuckle today, being married to a fisherman that is the sort of comment that I would get too. Hope everything is going OK with the knock through and that Libbie is behaving herself!! Oh and I forgot I just love the card!! Jo x
