Last post today, I swear....

I have been so busy creating the last few days, I hadn't had the time to post what I have been making! And since I have about 19.5 minutes until the bus delivers the munchkins, I figured I better seize the moment (especially since these two challenges are due asap!)

This first card is my entry to my first ever to the Just Magnolia challenge blog :) The challenge was distressing (not to me, to the card, silly!) and I had a lot of fun aging the edges, teastaining the fabric...

This is the only magnolia stamp I have, and after using her, now I know why so many of you love your magnolias! She was really fun to color :)

Ingredients
Papers:MyMindsEye
Image:Magnolia
Embellishments: fabric, buttons

My other card is a little more seasonal. Drawing inspiration from Our Creative Corner, I went autumnal and thankful for this easel card. Loving the easel cards! I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, and used Kraft paper as requested by Daring Card Makers :)

This stamp was toooo fun to color, and I really had a blast finding just the right papers for her :)


Ingredients
Papers:Graphic45, Creative Imaginations, brown Kraft Paper

Your distressing is great:) It's always so nice to see you've visited our blog. It's embarrassing enough to put myself on getting a haircut. Did you happen to see me in the witch costume? I did show that. Have a great day! Twyla
