Wishing You a Beautiful Day...

Hey There Everyone!!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Ours is a pretty busy one. I'm still catching up from CHA...but I'm almost there. Hubby entered a mountain biking snow race on Saturday and I was so happy when he arrived home afterwards in one piece. We got a lot of snow again on Saturday and it took him forever to drive home. It was coming down really fast and I think we got another 6 inches! He was going about 4 mph on the highway. Yuck! My son and I were at home for the day. He played on his computer for a bit while I worked. Then we played some family games before putting him to bed. Today, Sunday, I have another list of things to do, so hubby took our son sledding in all the new snow. Yay, what fun! I'm getting my work done and then we will head off to my nieces birthday party.


Wishing You a Beautiful Day!

I'm luv, luv, luvin' the new Magnolia 'You're So Special' collection and I'm working my way through inking them all up. This is Tilda with Balloon and she's just the sweetest!

The gorgeous dp's are from BG's 'Olivia' collection. Love them!!!! They are just so stunning! All cs is SU. The ribbon is some seam binding that I dyed with my distress inks. The flowers and pearl spray were all sent to me by my friend Mindy - thanks Mindy! I cut the background with my new Go Kreate 'XXL Square Frames Frilly #2' die set. If you haven't seen these then you must check them out. They are fantastic and I want every one of them! The doily that I used in the background was part of some sample stuff that I received when I purchased something. I can't remember who it is from right now :-(

I just love this sentiment! It's from a set from Dies to Die For. It comes with several stamps and a die to cut around the border. Now that I think about it, I think the doily was a little sample from them when I received the stamp/die set. I just found it on their site! It's called Dainty Lace Doily and I just ordered it along with some others. I guess I'm in a shoppin' mood! Anyway, the pearls are from my stash and were out of the package so I have no idea who the manufacturer is.

I painted this little darling using watercolor with Ranger Distress Inks. Here are the color details:

tumbled glass, weathered wood, tea dye, tattered rose, walnut stain, frayed burlap, antique linen, vintage photo, black soot, worn lipstick

This card was a special order for Candace in California and will be shipped off to her Monday morning. Thank you Candace!

That's about it for today! I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you enjoyed your visit here today. Thank you all so much for the lovely comments that you leave on my blog. I don't have nearly enough time to thank you individually, but I do read every one of them and they always bring me warm fuzzies. So thank you so much :-)
