Magnolia Monday

Hello & Happy Monday!! I hope it was a good one! I had a fabulous day at school today, volunteering in the morning & working in the afternoon. The 4 day weekend was great, but I was glad to be back today (& I think the kids were too......I'm thinking they had cabin fever pretty badly!!)

I very often use the sketches at Friday Sketchers......but I don't think I've ever actually been able to submit a card for their drawing before!! I'm pretty sure I've never created something the week it was posted. Well I had a little time last night, & decided to use cutie pie Baking Tilda.



I colored her with Prismas & gamsol, & added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to her wings, cookies, & frilly on her dress. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to create a card if they did away with the Basic Grey 6x6 pads. I've used those on just about every card I've made lately. This time it's the Sugared collection, paired with Riding Hood Red (another fave) & PTI white. I used my new Martha Stewart border heart punch (purchased with a coupon, of course!) & the swirls are a Sizzlit run through my Cuttlebug. The Cuttlebug is another thing I couldn't do without!! I must say, I'm pretty good about using the supplies I have!! I embossed the pink layer with the Swiss Dots folder, added some Primas & some Dew Drops, added the "for you" (from PTI's Limitless Labels set) & here we have a card that I can actually enter into the Friday Sketchers drawing!! Woohoo for me!!

Here's a bit of a side view so you can see the glitter....




And here's a shot of the inside. I used the same papers, with that awesome border punch again.....




And I decorated the back a bit, just because I could. Thanks so much to Bev, for sharing with me where she got her fabulous "created by" stamps. She's enabled me so much lately!! Yes, I realized it's crooked, but I got so excited by my cute new stamp that I just slapped it on there anywheres!!!!



Thanks for stopping by & have a fantastic week!!
