A New Magnolia Card

Hi everyone,

As usual it is late at night here. although not nearly as late as most nights that I post to my blog!

I received a beautiful card today from Sharon Caudle and it was full of new spring stamps!! I was overjoyed and immediately started to make a card........however my husband continually interupted me today and I could not get it finished the way I wanted to.

I am going to the mainland on Friday for a while to visit my mother and take her to some doctor appointments so am trying to get the house organized and get clothes washed for packing etc.

He went out and bought a new truck the other day!!!! Now we have been having to go here and there to sign papers and get money and appointments etc. So I am way behind on all the things I have to do. He couldn't have done this at a worse time -but I am sure you all know about this kind of thing with your own husbands!!!!!!!!!

Anyway I could see my card was not going to come together but I had to get it finished. So here is the result.

The front of the card:

Here is a close up of Edwin:

And here is the simple inside:

This card was coloured with Copics, white card stock was used for the base of the card and the rest of the paper is from : DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies. I also used MS butterfly punch and that was all for today.

I would like to thank you all for your wonderful comments on my last card and I hope to follow this one with a much better one real soon.

If I can't post again before Friday. I will be gone for a bit more than 2 weeks. I will be able to check my mail, just not blog. I will be home again around May 8th or so.

Lots of Love,
