Thanks for all that you do........

Good Morning!!
First I want to say Happy 1 year to Just Magnolia!
This week they have a lovely sketch
with an option of making a Thank You card.

I think I am getting pretty brave with colors lately!! LOL
I get nervous using bright colors as I am more
of a muted and neutral person but lately I have
been drawn to colors! Maybe because Summer
is on its way. I love how everyone else does it
but am kinda iffy on mine! LOL

This is another image from the Spring Kit. I think
she is adorable! I have colored with twinkling H20's
and distress inks.  The flowers are from Prima and
papers are from Fancy Pants. I found the ribbon
at Emma's Paperie. Of course everything is doused
with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint. Sentiment
is from Catslife Press.

Well I hope you are all having a great week thus far
and that it continues to stay that way!
Tomorrow I have Rach's kindergarten Reg.
and I am not doing well with it!! LOL
My last baby is heading off to school! I never
really thought this day would come! haha
Well I guess it had to come sooner or later!

Anyways thanks so much for stopping by and see
you tomorrow with my Sugar Bowl card.

Beautiful card Kathy, your distressing is fab as always & I love the sweet Tilda she's my favourite from the stamp club.
Our babies grow up way too fast, my eldest baby (21) has just left home and moved into a flat and the house feels empty without him and his thumping music and the daily washing mountain lol
hugs Mandy xx
