Forgetting the Magnolia!! Ack!!

Edited to add: good grief I forgot to add a title to my post......MFB (mush for brains)

I've had this card for awhile, but I keep forgetting to post it! ackkk!

This little Magnolia is so cute, holding that little birdy!!

I stamped and coloured her with copics and even added a few little flowers to surround her!

I used the copic spica glitter pen for her wings, although you can never see it in the photos. I think you can click on the picture to get a close up though - try it.....

Her boots have clear dimensional stuff on them - okay the bottle says clear dimensional embellishment.... it is by Inkssentials and I don't consider this an embellishment but whatever!! Well I actually went downstairs and looked and it does say Glossy Accents - so I guess that is good too!! lol!

The sentiment is from "So Many Scallops" - I just cut off the scallops because I don't have the scallop punch and the nestabilities just don't work .

They have a different # of scallops and it just didn't look right - I am such a weenie when it comes to that sort of stuff. I have seen people just use it anyway - and it looks great - but I can't do it-yet!

I added a little bit o' bling from Verve Visual and popped up the sentiment with pop up glue dots.

Oh yeh, first of all I stamped the flourish from Technique Tuesday's flourish set and THEN added the sentiment.....

The paper is that beautiful Ginger Blossoms from Stamping Up that Kraftin' Kimmie ordered for me and Phebe from The Town Scrapper was gracious enough to be used as a drop off point!! What a couple of sweetie-pies!

I don't usually use people, but hey, it's all about the stamping ya know!!??

Off to the barn to gather up the eggs! We have got about 17 feet of snow - well not quite, maybe 4 inches but it seemed like 17 feet yesterday when I had to shovel it out just to open the barn door!!

It is definitely so pretty though, and even if I do love summer better, I KNOW that in the dead of summer I am going to be thinking about the cold days of winter!!

Aren't we funy like that?!!


  1. This is just too darn cute, Bonnie! I'm gonna have to get my hands on some Copics! The colors are just so vibrant!
    We got about an inch of snow here today and we're supposed to get more tonight! Freakish weather patterns for Texas this time of year! It is beautiful and I did get to launch a snowball or two at the kids! Ha! What fun!
    I posted an award for you on my blog! You should pop over and check it out!
    Have a great day and try to stay dry and warm!

  2. This is adorable! I know what you mean about the heat and thinking about the snow again. I would love the have 80 degrees, no humidity, and a light breeze...everyday! Oh, then there would be all those allergens...we're never happy are we? Only when we stamp..and that you are really good at! Love this little girl! Oh, and blog candy offering soon....I promise!!

  3. Hahaha!! Use me anytime Bonnie-boo!! It's all in the name of stampin'!! This card is A-dorable! Can you believe that I haven't inked this one up yet?? Yikes!!! I'd better correct that, pronto!!

    Hey are you and Marcie meeting us in Petrolia on the 20th??
