Okay, I know it's last minute, but it's been crazy around here..but anyway here is my April Mingle..I hope Caroline likes it....




Let's see, paper is all Stampin' Up!, sentiment is SU!, distressing ink is SU!, brads are SU!, Magnolia is colored with copics, a little glitter on the spoon to look like sugar crystals, and ribbon completes the card.

Recipe Card Swap For The Yahoo Magnolia Group

Hello...okay, things have been super busy..in fact super is an understatement! I finally finished my two swap sets for the Yahoo Magnolia-licious Group Recipe Swap. One set is a variety of colors and has the Apricot Chicken recipe and the other has the Garlic Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon. I have included in this post a few of each. These are due in Oregon on Saturday, so they will be going postal tomorrow.








Each Magnolia stamp is colored with copics, distressed with SU ink, and some have half back perals, some brads, some eyelets, plastic paper clips and some have ribbon.




Not only does each card have a different design or color scheme, I also made the Magnolia's different skin tone shades. Hopefully you all like them!

Two Sympathy Cards

Well, after a long day at the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Aquarium in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, with 210+ 7th graders, I made it back home to work on two sympathy cards for two family members.

We recently had an aunt pass away, and these are the two cards I made for the sister, and mother.








Please fell free to give feed back, and let me know what you think.








The two Magnolia Stamps are two of the most versatile. Nearly all the paper and cardstock in Stampin' Up! The elements and cards, are distressed with close to cocoa ink (SU), and paper pierced with the mat pack (SU). All coloring of the Magnolias was created with copic sketch markers.


The white doily square was cut from the Mother's Day limited edition Cricut Cartridge. I believe I cut it at 4 inches, to make it fit.
