New Card and news

Boy, did I have fun on the Magnolia-licious Blog Hop. It's still going on, all day today, so hop on over to to start on your path to inspiration!
I made this card tonight after seeing the wonderful work the DT displayed for all hoppers.
The guidelines were to use a MAgnolia stamp and to make it PINK. I love how my card turned out. I used white core cardstock and distressed the edges, then added CTMH patterned paper and blinged the centers of the flowers. I colored jump roping Tilda with Copics, then glitzed her with Liquid Glass for some dimension. Since cutting around the jump rope was impossible, I adhered some green wire to her handles for a 3D jump rope. Then, I embellished with a wide polkadotted ribbon (rummage sale, a gazillion yards for 50 cents) and tied the middle with a thinner piece of ribbon, then tied it into a bow. Finally, I added two art deco photo corners to my cardfront.
This weekend, besides working on Sunday for a retreat for 92 teens (yes, I said 92 14 year olds all in one room for the day), I enjoyed Saturday in the company of friends and fellow crafters in Woodstock. My sister came and she finished 14 pages! I finished my granddaughter's mini album called "Daddy's House" so that even when she's not staying with us she can hug us. I also caught up with my 365 Days of Me album pages, scrapping up to 1/14. I started my son's Army Reserves album. He was sworn in last October and ships out to Basic Training in February. I borrowed Lisa's Cricut carts "Base Camp" and "United We Stand" and there are some great cuts in them. Thanks Lisa!
I made some envies for a swap that I had made cards and forgot to include the envelopes. I also scrapped a page for Bella's second year album, and stamped a few new images that Carol graciously lent me (thanks, Carol).
Whew, I'm tired after all that. Lucky I was off today, working in a school and all. Cleaned and organized my linen closet and cleaned out old medicines and organized the med basket as well. That was today's photo for my 2010 album--sure looks pretty in that closet now!
