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.

I opened a new Etsy store and put a couple of cards in it.  I still have a bunch that I want to upload to it, but it may take a week or so.  I hope you'll take a looksie if you find the time.


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 #294 Tilda with Balloon and she's just the sweetest!  She is currently available at Magnolia-licious, along with the rest of the collection.  So head on over there and get yours while they're still in stock!

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

Angie, You are so amazingly good at using these darker tones. I will admit I made a card yesterday using them and it took me ALL DAY! I still might re-do it too. :( I think I need to get some new colors in my Copics. I sware there's a magnet in my hand that is connects to the pinks :P
Beautifully done, as all your cards are! The lady who is getting this from you will be thrilled!

Hugs, Mindy
