MIssing you

Good evening everyone,
Posting a little late today...sorry!  I was out shopping when we got a HUGE storm (lightning spreading across the sky, thunder and a huge downpour).  I was out eating dinner and decided to wait it out...except that it took almost 2 hours!  The good news is that now the temperature has dropped to 59 degrees...and I'm actually cold!  That's different...I'll blow some of this frosty air towards all of you reading this in the heat zone...

Today I am making a card for Kathy.  I have a gift for her that I picked up in NY and haven't sent it so here's her card (of course now she'll be seeing it ahead of time...but it's actually much prettier in person than on the photo).  Very sparkly.  I am entering this card into the Let's Ink It Up: Challenge #25.  The themes for this challenge is "very girly".  I had a lot more girly things planned for this card, until I realized the image took up almost the entire card.  LOL!  So instead I sparkled it up and put some bling.  This challenge is all about Magnolia stamps...these are some of my absolute favorite stamps!  So fun to color and so cute.  On this card, there's lots of stickles and the butterflies (Cheery Lynn) are actually made of glitter paper.  Tilda is popped out as she is leaning out the window.  Enjoy, and I will see you later this week.  Thanks for stopping by...Margaret
