You're So Sweet

Happy Thursday . . . we've almost made it to another weekend. Today is also the last day of swimming lessons for my kids this summer -- SWEET! I am not entirely sure that either of them will pass this level, but I know they have learned and are getting better.

Okay, on to my card of the day. Today I have another Magnolia image for you . . . I colored this one awhile back too, and just now finally got time to make her into a card.

I totally choked on the layout of this one. (aka, pretty boring) I was tired! I loved the colors together though, so fresh and happy. As usual I got carried away with the sewing. I briefly considered sewing quilt style across the pale dotted lines in the background paper, but I decided better of that. Thank goodness.

: Tilda with Cupcake (Magnolia), Everyday Button Bits (Papertrey Ink) - for the sentiment Paper: Creamy Caramel (SU!), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah), Sweet Matstack (Die Cuts With a View) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine (Tsukineko), Creamy Caramel Classic Ink (SU!) Accessories: tan grosgrain ribbon (Jody's Shares), oval punch (SU!), white crochet thread (unknown), sewing machine (Singer), white thread (Sulky), sponge (SU!), copic ciao markers (Imagination International Inc.), tan buttons (my stash), paper piercing tool
