In the Pink.....

I am not a huge fan of Magnolia stamps, but every so often I have the urge to colour one, especially as a friend loves them, she calls them the 'little girls with no faces!', and it's her birthday next week.....I do love the clothes these little children wear, this stamp is probably about four years old and she still looks trendy



I punched some flowers and leaves to make a spray 



Maybe I was too harsh - she does look cute!


We have rebooked our flights for early next week, so if all goes according to plan, my timetable over the next few days will be:
Washing and ironing - 3 hours
Cleaning the house - 4 hours
Packing - 1 hour
Sorting and packing my craft stuff - 2 days!


I have been doing a bit of armchair shopping again, Blitzy have some Sissix Tim Holtz alterations embossing folders on sale, I only have a couple of these and I love the way they emboss, really crisp, so I ordered four sets, they should be waiting for me when I get back to the States. One of the sets is this one, I just love those pine trees, and I have some ideas for the bare tree as well...........then I couldn't resist the sewing set, those wonky stitches look just like my sewing! 
 Hop over there and see what all the fuss is about, they have some great bargains, and if you refer friends you get credits as well.....can't be bad












See you tomorrow

LOL on the packing schedule! I'm not particularly fond of the Magnolias either...I'm always so tempted to draw a big ol' grinning smile on them! You did a fabulous job coloring her up and she is perfectly pretty in pink!

I know what you mean about Magnolia stamps. They stamp beautifully, but the faces kind of creep me out! I wish they had either no face at all or a whole one. Well just my opinion. Moving on, Love your card. Your coloring is great and I do love those little flowers. I don't envy your packing...I can't imagine not just putting everything in boxes and shipping it all! lol Good luck and travel safely. Hugs, Jess

I've always felt so sorry for the little girl with no lips. She's sad because she wants to wear lipstick and can't. Your coloring is so perfect though. Sounds like you have the same packing schedule I would have. Only I throw the clothes in unironed and iron them when I get there. No sense doing it twice!

I'm not a Magnolia fan either. Something just bothers me about those little ones! Your card is very cute though. I love the addition of the flowers etc.
I don't have any of Tim's embossing folders, maybe someday, but I'm trying not to buy, as usual. I have so much I haven't even tried yet that I think I need to use some of what I have, even though I love that pine tree one that you are getting.
Have a safe trip!

For someone that doesn't like Magnolias stamps, you did an excellent job with it. So pretty and girly. It makes me smile :)

Donna said...

Cute card, once again! Thank you for sharing.

Best of luck packing, cleaning, and safe travels. Welcome back to the USA when you arrive!

Blessings,

Love your card, coloring is perfect! Have a safe trip, make sure Mike moves around a lot on the flight, have him get up and down and walk.

I love those punched flowers and leaves! With all the die-cut machines around (in varying models of the same brand, I might add LOL!), nothing beats a puncher for ease of use - plus cuts down on scraps too!
