Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar

Hello crafty friends! Let me just tell you, I have had a doozy of a week!  It all started with the food poisoning that my husband and I got from ground beef.  You would know, the day after we ate it and got sick, the news reports of a recall on that same beef.  It had ecoli! OMG! We thought we were going to die!  Anyhow, then other things went on, so I have absolutely no creativity in me at the moment.  This is a little disclaimer to my card haha!


Well, I did use the super cute Hanglar that my friend Tammi bought me! Thank you so much sweetie! I  can't believe I am just now getting around to using it.  I wanted a bit of a different colored look, so I went with the crayon look.  I know weird, but it is just that kind of week.  OMG! I'm not even telling you that it is for the Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge, duh!!! Jane made this adorable sketch for us to follow and we have a super cute prize this week, so go check it out!

Anyhow, I used MME papers and Prisma Pencils to color without tons of blending.  I drew my own stitch lines with a micron pen and put little bows in the corners.

I have a shower in my hometown to go to this weekend, so I won't be posting for a few days! I do appreciate you stopping by and saying hello!  You guys are really the best.  I hope to be back to myself very soon! Thanks again for hangin with me! haha!

Hugs, Dena
