Just Magnolia and Roses On Paper Challenges!



Good Morning Everyone,

I can't believe that the weekend is gone already, where did it go?! I've been on the "go" every since Friday and yesterday we had company (relatives) who surprised me with an early birthday get together. Normally, I'm the type of girl that likes to celebrate my birthday with a quiet dinner with the family and breakfast with my girlfriend. I guess this year no one is having all the quiet celebration nonsense. *lol* My birthday is tomorrow and I will turn 50! None of my friends or family members are letting me celebrate my birthday on a quiet note! Bless their hearts! It is a wonder that I was able to finish this card for Just Magnolia and Roses On Paper! Seriously....it took me every bit of three days to squeak in a little time to finish my card.



This weeks Roses On Paper Challenge is to make a card featuring the colors lavender, light blue and cream. Just Magnolia's Challenge is to emboss! Both challenges are featured on this card.

card details..........
image Magnolia, sentiment scrapbook kit, inks Copic Markers, card stocks Bazzill and the Cut Cardstock Company, design paper older scrapbook kit paper, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Pendant die which was embossed as well. I also used flowers and half pearls for embellishments.


Although I was pretty tired last night, I did manage to stay up for HBO's True Blood Finale. I'm so crazy about that show and of course it ended with a cliffhanger! What am I going to do for nine whole months?! Gosh!!

In the meantime, I have to catch up on my blogging! I haven't been on my computer for three whole days!!! Have a great day and thank you all so much for stopping by!
