Mondo Magnolia Thanks

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been slacking on crafting lately.  I took a few days off work to get some appointments taken care of and to get our cars registered and I feel like I’m more busy as a “stay at home mom”than as a full time worker! Sheesh! I did cram a lot into 3 days but it really wore me out!

On a good note – my YouTube channel reached 3,000 subscribers! I can’t thank you all enough. In the same week, I had two negative comments left by some very hateful viewers. But…it’s ok! They were on older videos and I know I’m still learning and growing with my video experience. I’ve chosen not to be offended because they could use some love in their lives :). Oh! And apparently, it’s my 1 year anniversary with this blog!

Live Love Cards’ theme for this month is “Thanks” so I thought this card would be appropriate. I have had this stamp set a while and have been wanting to use it.

It makes such a bold statement, doesn’t it? I used distress inks to watercolor the petals and embossed the sentiment on vellum.

Adding some gold touches and sequins, I finished off this simple card. I think it’s so pretty and I will definitely do more of these in the future.
