How are you this Presidents' Day? Hopefully, you had the day off and found some time to do some creating.
I wanted to share a photo with you of a very special apple that my sweet husband brought home for me from Oregon. He didn't tell me anything about it. When I decided to have it as a snack, imagine my surprise when, after biting into it, found that the flesh was a deep pink! How cool is that? You should have heard me squeal with delight! I think the neighbors may have heard me! Then, I noticed that my bite was in the shape of a heart! Too funny! On the outside, it's the color of a Granny Smith apple. Here is a photo of my very first Hidden Rose apple. What do you think?
Neat, huh? It was delish, too! Crisp, crunchy, not sweet, but not real tart - refreshing.
Well, today is the first Mini Monday at the Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog. Mini Mondays are set aside for you to get out a Magnolia mini and ink it up! I must admit, I have always favored the standard sized images, but this was just too fun to do! Little did I realize how quickly the image would be colored! LOL! Here is my project. I used the following items from the Magnolia-licious Store.
Doohickey Romantic Tag
Snowy Hug Mini stamp
Marianne Design Winter Birds Die
As you can tell, I created a shaker box for my Snowy Hug Mini. I used German glass glitter inside the shaker. The flower is hand made. I used Memory box dies for the snow globe shape and the hanging heart. I made the envelope and placed a Magnolia DooHickey die cut inside. A touch of puffy paint here and there finished the snowy feel inside the snow globe.
Remember those eyelets and flat tops that we used to use years ago in scrapbooking? Well, I decided they I should use them rather than just let them sit on a shelf. Here, I paired two die cuts and added the eyelets and flat tops as accents. There is a hidden tag attached to the bow.
Well, there is my card for Mini Monday! I would love if you shared your mini card, too! These minis are little treasures that have not been given their time to shine!
Hopefully, you are still reading along! If so, I want to share with you that from now until Feb. 28, Diana at Magnolia-licious is having a 10% off sale on Score Pal Tape.
