I hope you've had a wonderful week and that those of you who have been snowed on again, are snug and warm.
Today is the 1st of the month and that means the Magnolia Mania Challenge Blog is kicking off another new challenge. Our theme for the next 14 days is BUTTERFLIES, and who doesn't think of warmer weather, flowers, green grass and sunshine when thinking of butterflies?
The gorgeous Magnolia stamp is called Tilda with Hawaii Flower, I just love her... I'm struggling with the pleats and folds of their darling little dresses so any hints or suggestions on coloring them would be greatly appreciated. For the background, I used five different stamps and brown ink on kraft cardstock. My Cricut and MS punches were used for the butterflies. I know it's hard to see in these pictures but I have made a silver butterfly charm, that is tied onto the tag, using a punch, silver embossing powder and a jump ring.
CANDY SNEAK PEEK!!!!!
As I've mentioned in previous posts, March is my birthday and blog anniversary month. On the 29th, I will have been blogging for an entire year already and will be turning forty....something, on the very same day. I have been gathering up goodies to give away and tomorrow I will be going to the stamping convention where I will be keeping a sharp eye out for more goodies to add. Here is just a little taste (a small sampling really) of what I'll be giving away.
Yeah, it's gonna be AWESOME!
Thank You so very much for stopping by today. I can't tell you what it means to me that you've taken the time to visit and comment. Have a great day, and better tomorrows!
