Happy Anniversary with the Minis.

Hello friends! I have an Anniversary card to share with you. I made it for Angie and her hubby.  :) Anytime I make her something I try to use the deeper rich colors she likes. I am thrilled with the way this came out! I tried a little something different with my sky, mixing some colors to create a different looking sunset. It's really pretty in real life.

I used these new flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts! I've found a new favorite, Sweetheart Blossoms! They are a little smaller than Cherry Blossoms. I LOVE them! These darker toned roses are Wild Orchid's new Classic Color Line, they are so pretty.

This is also my card for Just Magnolia and hAngler. Our theme this week is Buttons, Bows and Bling! I do hope you'll join us!

I have been super busy lately and enjoying every minute of it! I want to thank everyone for always leaving me the sweetest comments. Each and everyone one of them mean a great deal to me! I have a hard time getting around and leaving comments myself so it means a lot when you take a minute to leave me a note!

Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - White + 2 other colors!

Hello Friends, I hope you had a great Easter! Mine was good! We colored eggs, had an Easter egg hunt, BBQed with a friend of mine and her kids. It was lots of fun!

I have a card for Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge. Our theme is to use white and 2 other colors. I chose pink and green. I think it makes the card look very Spring-ish. I used this Mini Tilda from the  Mini You are so Special Collection. I think she's adorable. The mini tree is from Alota Rubber stamps. You can find it and tons of other adorable mini scenes at Magnolia-licious.

Wednesday is Wild Orchid's very first Blog Hop! There's going to be prizes given away at some of the design team members blogs, a grand prize, release of the new vintage roses and inspiration from my wonderful friends and design team members!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Just Magnolia!!! Today is Just Magnolia's 2nd Birthday. I have created a little Birthday Party scene. I just love this card. I actually made this card for my Great-Grandmother, Nana. Her 92nd Birthday was last Saturday. We had a great time, I just love her to pieces!

Yesterday I was working on some DT stuff and I was hot gluing my WOC flowers and the hot glue dripped on my knuckle! It hurt and it hurt for a minute, cause YES it's GLUE! It bubbled into a blister right away. Soooo here's my 'Tip of the Day' ....Don't burn yourself with a hot glue gun!!! LOL!!!! ;)
