Just Magnolia

Hello there!!! Is everyone making plans for Easter?  We are going to my parent's for a bar-b-que and Alyssa just got in yesterday from college, so all is going well in our household.

Today is another challenge at Just Magnolia and this challenge is "Fold It" or more than one fold. We have a fabulous sponsor....Simon Says Stamp.  You could win a $25 gift voucher for their store!!!!!! Thanks Simon Says!

I decided to use the criss cross card since I have never made one before.  I got the instructions HERE. Believe it or not it actually took me forever to make this card.  You know how sometimes that just happens. 

Here's what I used to make this card:

Stamps:  Magnolia, Hoppy Easter Collection
Inks:  Distress Inks
Papers:  Nitwits, Hoppy Hearts
Tools: MS Doily Punch, Scalloped Hearts Nesties, sewing machine

I used stickles on the heart and the eggs, but you can't see it very well.  What's a card without stickles huh?  If you look real close you will see that the blue paper has little bunnies and carrots on it, sooooo very cute!

I loved all the cards that the team made for this challenge, they really went over and above this week! Please be sure to check out their blogs!

Thank you very much for all your support! I hope everyone has a wonderful, long weekend!

Hugs, Dena 


  1. Yup - another stunner! It's nice to hear you took some time to get this done. Your work is always soooo gorgeous I can't imagine you having any problems - that helps us mere mortals feel better - LOL.
    Enjoy your Easter - especially with your daughter home! I'm just glad - most of the time ;) - that my daughter still lives here now she's at uni - but then not many Aussie kids DO leave home...
