Just Magnolias and Hanglar's- My Favorite Things

HA! I am totally loosing it! I am in such high gear trying to get ready for CHA - and Hubby is totally re-doing my kitchen. My house is a disaster, and so is my brain! I went to bed yesterday KNOWING that it had been Wednesday all day... Hubby says.. uh no - it is THURSDAY... NO I LOST A DAY??? And I didn't write my Friday post! But honestly, I was just to worn out and tired to get out of bed. Funny... I am going to go off to CHA and rest! LOL

So a bit late, here is my FRIDAY - Just Magnolia's and Hanglars Post!

Today's challenge is to use all of your favorite things when making this card! How fun is that! And I am still getting a kick out of the fact that we are now able to use Hanglar and Stanglar images...
This is one of my favorite Hanglar images... and one that haunted me forever! I SO wanted this image when I first saw it. I totally loved it. Yep.. me the girl that hates to clean and do chores! So not only was this stamp nearly impossible for me to get cuz it was a Hanglar.. but then it was a harder to find Hanglar to boot! But I just kept on dreaming of it. A wonderfully sweet blogging friend sent me a few stamped out. But those went quick. And then one day another Blogging Friend casually mentioned she was ordering a few Hanglars... REALLY.. can I add to your order just a little. AND there it was! I was able to order her and a couple of others! REAL Rubberstamps!!! I adore her.. and I love to color her.

So when I had to pick a favorite stamp I knew just which one I was choosing. Then I went for my papers - I love the colors on these, and the fact that they have just a bit of glitter to them. They are My Minds Eye "Laundry Line" - ok.. yes kind of funny that the name of the papers, and the image go so well together huh? But these are actually some of my very favorite papers too. I cut out different layers with an off white card stock base and a light blue mat. I then cut out A Nesties that fit perfectly under my very large image. whew.. barely.  Lacey Square's is a one of the newer Nesties for me. And I think it is perfect for these larger images, to give them some delicate matting. Everything is sewn together, as I love doing that you know. I then added my favorite Mulberry roses, and a Just Rite Sentiment.

This card made me happy - maybe it was knowing I got to use all of my favorite things? Now you make a favorite card and join us at Just Magnolias and Hanglar Stanglar! 

Me... I gotta run - Hubby is gonna start yelling that I am holding him up! We are running into town for a few last minute kitchen re-do items.... and I don't want him picking out the back splash tile with out me!!!  I would have to live with it forever, cuz I don't see us doing this kitchen over in many many many years!

HUGS and have a wonderful Friday!

Gorgeous card! Adorable image! My grandmother passed her washboard on to me, and now my granddaughter likes to play "Little House on the Prairie" with it!
