Hip Hip Hooray

My dear friend, Debby has an upcoming birthday in January.  I've made this Magnolia card to mail to her.  We have been friends for a long time and write daily.  I live in Louisiana and she lives in Israel.  I hope one day we will be able to visit together.  The pp for the card was from My Mind's Eye by Indie.  Love using their pattern papers.  I colored Tilda with Copics.  Prima flowers, and little embellishments/ribbon from my stash.  I haven't made many cards lately.  I've had some feet issues and it has about got the best of me.  Thanks for stopping by.  
Have a Happy upcoming New Year my friends.

Entering this TAG into the Official Magnolia Inspiration blog challenge here for Challenge 54 using a Magnolia stamp and a flower on a tag.

After I had colored the image I somehow got a speck of red Copic ink on the outside of the image over about an inch away. I thought oh dear lord..... this is ruined! Never say never.  ROFL.   I took cool grays, Cool Shadow, Blush, and added more specks and squiggles.  and blended and blended.  And on my outside edges and my embellishments I used some snow to give it yet another Chrsitmas cold look.  I loved how the background turned out at the end.  

I used a cute Tilda and made a Christmas tag.  Cheese cloth was dyed with Walnut stain.  Film strip from Ranger, flower I made using the Pinecone die from Ranger.  Stick pin, heart from my stash, leaves from MM.  Liquid pearls.  Lace, pearls, twine from SU.  And my new chevron paper by Simple Stories..

Thanks for dropping by.  I've haven't posted lately due to getting ready to leave for a crop/classes for half a week.  I hope all the prep work I've done will pay off!  8-)

Thoughts of You...

Using scraps for this card I made my own pp....  Stamp set is by Best Blossoms from SU.  Sentiment is from Goody-Goody Gumdrops also by SU.  I only used part of the sentiment.  I have a special friend that needs a hug and this is the perfect card for Debi.....  Her dad has had a lengthy illness and she's been his all time main caregiver.  Think of her often and I know there are so many days she is not thanked enough by family for all she does.
Sending her big big hugs today.

Hopefully, through my feeble efforts at blogging, I pass on to others some of the encouragement I've received!

 So now, I pass this award on to those I enjoy following, hoping each of you realize how much I love reading of your adventures and creativity. 
This list is absolutely in no particular order...
