Magnolia One Smile Can Warm the World

*****UPDATE*****




Good Morning! I hope your week has been fabulous thus far.

Funny story. You may not know this but my husband Sean and I are wicked pranksters. We've been tormenting our neighbors for years. I could get into some side splitting funny story's but I thought I'd share our latest. Our neighbor has a statue of an adorable squirrel. So our plan is to steal it for a year. Yup that's right a year. We are going to take it to as many places as we can and take pictures of it. At the beach, riding a horse, camping and so forth. We'll send the pics to our neighbors with a greetings message like "having a great time at the beach", "look mom my first ride on a horse" or "miss you but camping has been a real treat". Heehee they will NEVER know it's us. Shhh don't tell.

So anyway I created my card using one of Magnolia's newest stamps. She is so darn adorable, I just love her. I used my Distress Inks to color her in. Flowers by Prima. Sentiment is from Spellbinders. I have a couple of handmade stick pins and some metal embellishments from my stash. The purple swirl is by Recollections. Notice the cute little glass bottle with the glass beads, isn't it cute?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a Sparkling Day! Hugs Bonnie

OMG BONNIE! You guys are HILARIOUS!! Too bad you couldn't send it to Canada so I could take it place and get pictures for you!! How funny would that be?!!

OK your card is absolutely GORGEOUS!! You're not in my commenting roster for MDUC but I just HAD to thank you for entering this week. I LUV the purples and have really been feeling the need to do purple so am just drooling over this! Your coloring is gorgeous and I like where you have the sentiment placed between the beautiful bling! WOZERS!! Hope to see you join us again!! Hugs!

How funny, reminds me of Flat Stanley... Something the kids do for school and you send Flat Stanley to family and friends around the US and they take pictures of him doing different things in your home town or while you are on vacation. What fun you and your neighbors must have..

Now onto your card..How adorable..thanks not only for the entertaining story but for joining us over at Creative Inspirations.

Hugs
Debbie
