Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar - Lace

Well, today is the big day for my baby boy to Graduate! I am sooo very proud of the fine young man he is becoming.  He will be attending a college just 3 hours away in San Antonio, Texas.  He has been a mama's boy for a long time now and it will be very interesting to see how he adjusts.  It may be a short lived college time in SA if he doesn't follow the rules we have placed on him haha!

For today I would like to share my DT card for Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Magnolia - Tilda With Flower Pot
Inks:  Distress Ink Refills
Paper:  Pion Designs (These are my VERY favorite of allllllll time!!! It was so hard to cut them!!!!!)
Tools:  Magnolia Doohickey Fence, Sewing Machine, MS Frond Punch
Embellies:    15mm Open Roses, Ivory and Lilac Cherry Blossoms, 6mm Rosebuds, and Natural Cotton Lace all from Wild Orchid Crafts!!!

The doily is from my stash, but Wild Orchid Crafts is now carrying them.  I just dunked my white one in some coffee to give it the ivory look. 

Don't you just love all the new stamps for the Magnolia Sweet Rainbow collection?  Wow! That was such a hard decision when I was purchasing mine from Magnolia-licious.  I may have to make another order! haha!  My order has not arrived yet, but when I get back from vacation, I plan on coloring them all up!! Yippee!

Well, time to run!  So much to do before the graduation ceremony!

Thank you so much for your thoughtful words you leave me! I love to read them all!

Hugs, Dena
