Roses are red...

Happy Weekend Everyone!  I sure hope you're having a great weekend so far.  We're just hanging around the house today spending some quality family time together.  It's nice to have some 'down time'.  Tonight we're heading over to have dinner with friends.  We've haven't seen them in quite a while so we're really looking forward to it.  The kids always have fun playing together and us adults usually get out the cards - boys vs girls and the girls usually kick booty.

Today I have a card for Magnolia Down Under Challenges!!!  The challenge this week is 'Stitching Real or Fake'.  The DT has some awesome creations so I strongly suggest you go check them out.  I used #349Tilda Holding Bunch of Roses.  You can get this stamp at Magnolia-licious along with many, many others that you're sure to fall in love with. 

I chose to make a card that I could send to the very sweet Leonie in Australia.  We've never met, but she went out of her way to send me some stamped hAnglar stAnglar images.  I was so impressed by her kindness and I wanted to send her a special 'thank you'.  I hope you enjoy my creations.

Tilda Holding Bunch of Roses

The dp's are from BasicGrey - Ambrosia and I think they're stunning.  I really enjoyed working with them.  CS is SU.  The ribbon and pins are from Making Memories.  I used a MS photo corners punch for the first time and loved it.  I added diamond Stickles all over and TPC Studio pearls to the corners.  The doily is by Artifacts.

I colored the image using watercolors with distress inks and Copic markers.

I sent the card in this little handmade box along with some card making trinkets inside.  It was a ton of fun to make, however, I was a little lazy and didn't keep track of the materials used - sorry!.  I shipped it off to her without notice and received an email from her the other day full of surprise.  I think we made each other's day.  It's a great thing when you have an opportunity to do something nice for someone special.

Well, that's all I have to today.  I hope you find some time to color!
