Magnolia's Artist Edwin Colors My World!

Hello Dearest Readers,

How is the world where you are? My little world has its ups and downs, LOL. It seems as if my DH and I spend more time waiting in doctors' offices than we do having fun! Getting old is a pain! Things are wearing out, breaking, or just not working! LOL **sigh** Take care of yourselves! DH and I played hard as young people. We should have taken better care of our bodies, too!

Today is a bright blue day. There is a breeze and the temperature isn't too bad - 57°F/14°C. I can handle any day like this! LOL

If you haven't been to the Magnolia-licious Store lately, you may want to take a peek at the Touch of Love Collection that Diana has ready for you to ink up! Just follow either link posted in this paragraph!

Today begins a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The theme for this new challenge is:

Love and/or Hearts

For my card, I chose to take a different design path. Normally, my cards are embellished with flowers and many other embellishments This time, I wanted something clean and simple since the card is meant for a gentleman. I hope you lie it! Here is the front:

Isn't Edwin adorable? I love this stamp to bits! I used glittered card stock for all the colored elements. I like that it added a nice touch of sparkle. Here are images of the interior:

I loved the pairing of these two stamps with the sentiment on the front. Again, I've used glittered card stock. I just love that stuff! It's so thick, though, that it is almost impossible to punch shapes from it.

There you have it - a rare clean and simple card design by yours truly! I should force myself to do more styles like this! I kept asking my husband, "What else does it need?" He had to hold me back! LOL

Now, it's YOUR turn! We would love to have you join the challenge. One lucky person will win a $20 gift certificate from Magnolia-licious. You can't beat that! I know I would love one! LOL Hmmmm - maybe I should enter under a false name **just kidding**!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

I hope you will return again very soon!
