Wee Peggy Stamped Featured Today at Magnolia-licious

Hello from the heat saturated Mojave Desert!

OK, the temperatures for the last five days have ranged from 116° F. (47° C.) to today's high of 113° (45° C.)! I could bake cookies in my car! No kidding! When I was teaching, I had my class assemble S'mores in the classroom. Then, we wrapped them in foil and took them out to my car where I placed the bundles on the back seat window ledge and on the front dashboard. In 15 minutes they were done! The kids loved it! It was a great learning experience!

Today, I have the most delightful Wee Stamps image to share with you. It's called Peggy. I think her face is just so sweet. I wanted to lean toward the vintage style this time. I chose the colors pink, brown, and cream. Here it is:

The little butterflies have been coated with Frantage so they look enameled and sparkle with the gold element of the Frantage. By bending the wings while the Frantage is hot, they cool in the upright position! I added lots of pearls throughout the card. I pulled lots of flowers from my stash. Add a touch of lace and seam binding, and voila!

Wee Peggy is available at Magnolia-licious. Also from Magnolia-licious is:

Leaf and Swirl Die

So VERY Pretty! I have my first jar of Frantage on the way. I know I'm way behind the times here but I'm excited to see how it works since artists like you have such great ideas on how to use it.
