Another Magnolia card and a yummy SMOOTHIE

Happy Monday! It seems the weeks are just flying by. I am getting so excited and overwhelmed by all I have to do for the move. I need to go pick up more boxes today and get crackin' on the packing! (I'm such a dork!) Anyway, I thought I would share a card with you that I made when I still had a stamp space. This is a combination of my two favorites -- Magnolia and Penny Black!

The colors in this card were completely inkspired by the American Crafts ribbon. I have been using my ribbon a lot lately as inkspiration. Image was watercolored in. I got a little too wet on her face by accident, and it started to pill a bit, but it turned out okay, you can't see it! YAY! Scallops were made using my slit punch. It is so easy to do -- I am sure you have seen how. If not, let me know and I will show you one my site. Sentiment is by Penny Black and I thought it just went perfectly with this image. Oh and you might notice something a little different about this image -- she has a smile (I added it because of the sentiment) and I think it looks cute.

The other thing I wanted to tell you all about is that the countdown to Papertrey Ink's new sets has begun on Nicholes blog. I am a sucker for Halloween and Christmas stamps -- and I cannot wait till the 15th to see her new sets. I also was a first time orderer from her site last month and I just wanted to say that I was totally in awe of the amazing service and the quality of the products I received. I was totally impressed and would recommend them!! If you have not been there, go check them out. You'll fall in love!

Finally, a smoothie recipe that is so yummy! Try it! We love it!
