Just Magnolia *13*

This week over at Just Magnolia ~ Mina has given us a beautiful sketch to work from. I wanted to make a card for my Rach who is recovering from surgery. Her favorite color is yellow so I had to find some paper with alittle in it! (Not my favorite color to work with!)I thought this image was perfect as she has been eating nothing but ice cream or freezy pops for the past 2 days. I distressed all edges with my scissors and added some liguid glass to the ice cream top and flower centers. sentiment also came with the summer kit.

Paper: The Paper Studio
Inks: distress inks, twinkling h2o's
Accessories: button and twine ~ stash, ribbon and charm ~ Micheals, Pink pearls ~ Kaiser Crafts, raffia lace ~ Paper Cellar

Well thanks so much for stopping by! I hope everyone has a wonderful week-end. I will be sitting at home for at least 2 more days for Rach to recover and to start eating solid food again!! She looks like she has lost all her baby fat!! (LOL) Thanks to everyone for there sweet comments regarding her!!

That is too funny that you were in Buffalo recently too...we fly out of Buffalo as it is considerably cheaper than the Toronto airport. It's about a 3 hr drive for us but well worth it! We save so much even when you factor in the gas and parking.
