I'm back and some cards!


Happy New Year to all of you! I want to apologize for just letting you all hang. I was ill in the beginning and then when I felt better, I didn't feel like getting online and posting and then before you knew it, the holidays were here. I also made a couple of trips to see my kids. Hope this post lets you see that I wasn't completely idle. It is going to be a long post with lots of photos! Hope you enjoy them. I also made a couple of cards that went out rather quickly, including about 25 different Christmas cards. So here goes. The butterflies are cuttlebug cutouts, embossed and covered with diamond glaze. This gives it a kind of leathery feel and you can shape them. There is white flower soft for the snowman's snow and of course there is a lot of stickles on all the cards. I used flower soft for the sand for the pirate. That ship is a sticker that I added stickles to. If there is any part you want to know about, just email me. I did not keep track of the copics as I knew I would probably never find the paper I wrote on ever again, so I didn't keep track.









Hugs to you all! I gave up trying to arrange the photos. Barb F

Barb,
thank you so much for sharing. Your cards are adorable. For someone new and crazy in love with Magnolia, your cards give me ideas on how to make some cards of my own. Please keep sharing.
