A Cute Little Maggie.....
Good morning Bloggers...another Friday has rolled around and even though I don't work anymore, I'm always happy to see them. My weekends are usually just the same as my weekdays, but I still love them just the same. This morning I want to share another Halloween card that I made using this cute little Magnolia stamp. I think she is just too cute and she is all decked out in her purple and green just waiting for the holiday. Now I don't have many of these cards to make. My grandsons are too old for trick-or-treating, but I still try and mail them a card. Nothing like getting mail especially if I tuck a few dollars inside. I also do a few for the box for the nursing home just in case they have a use for one.
My card is 6" X 6" square and I have layered designer paper to set up my image. The papers are from Making Memories (a stack that I won from Joan's Gardens last Fall) Joan always carries the best products in her shop and I'm always pleased when I win something or when I get to make a purchase from her. The little bat is a digi that was free and I just printed him off and cut him out and then added a little bit of stickles to his wings. The ribbon is seam binding that I colored with Ranger Distress Inks and let it dry scrunched up. My little image was stamped onto Canson watercolor paper and colored with Distress Inks also. These little images are just perfect for this way of coloring and I dearly love this technique. I hope you like her, I think she is just too cute!
Ok that's it for me this morning. Whatever you are doing today, just take a moment out of your busy schedule and "Breathe"! Life is complicated and you need just a small bit of time each day to be good to yourself.
Have a wonderful weekend and try and stay out of trouble!
