Friday Sketchers # 67 & Just Magnolia # 20...Awesome Friend!


Hey crafty friends...hope you're having a stampin' good weekend! Hannah and I had some fun girls stuff planned for the weekend as the boys have gone to Mosport to watch the car races. We were going to drive to Toronto yesterday and spend a little cha-ching at the Bella Boutique and meet up with some friends but we stayed home instead and I finally rented Twilight....oh it was soooo good...I am reading Eclipse now and have become a total Twilight Saga freak....I just love Edward he's soooo dreamy,lol! Oh, if you are a Twilight freak too then you have to go and see this fab ATC card by Fran....it is sooooo amazingly adorable!
I did some stamping and coloured several of the new Magnolia images that came in my Fall Stampculb kit. I really love them all but I am partial to Tilda with Blueberries...for now...isn't she a cutie patootie, smile!

I ordered some new copic paper, Neenah White, I am quite happy with it but I'm still adjusting to it. This paper is very thick and really makes the colours appear so vibrant! There is good "blendability" (if that is even a word) with this paper too. I'm really diggin' it!
So this morning I made this card with the great sketch over at Friday Sketchers # 67 and for the Just Magnolia challenge # 20 too....Ribbon and bows...I made my cardbase 6x6 lilac Bazzill Bling cardstock and used this MME Wild Asparagus patterned cardstock that I have had in my stash forever. I inked the edges of my papers with Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress inks. This fabulous ribbon is from my good bloggin' friend Kim...I just love it and had been hording it but it was perfect for this card....thanks again, sweetie! The Awesome definition label is by Making Memories and the word "Friend" is a Melissa Frances rub-on. I added a Prima and I shimmerized with Angel Wings Shimmerz.

Here is the inside....well there ya have it another card...I am glad that I have some more images coloured now I can just make up the cards...I think I have stumbled on to a good idea here,lol!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!
Hugs,
