Just Magnolia Week #49 Fold It / Magnolia Down Under - Thank You





My card for the Just Magnolia Challenge which is to have folds in it. I found the turtorial for this card on the Sugar Nellie Blog. Here is the link to make one http://sugarnellie.blogspot.com/2010/03/shaped-card-tutorial-by-tiets.html.

For my card I used Cosmo Cricket's Honey Pie papers. I used some shimmery blue card stock for the base. My image of course is the fabulous Magnolia Cutie Pie Sitting on her Strawberry. My flowers are from Martha Stewart.

Down at Magnolia Down Under they are looking for Thank You cards. I keep entering this challenge, but have not even gotten honorable mention in this challenge. It is almost impossible to win in this challenge as they don't go by random generator, but hand pick the winners. I've been entering since the beginning and have never even receive a top five honor, but I will keep trying as this is now my goal.

Well back to the grind tomorrow. The kids are back in school after a 4 day Easter weekend of absolutely perfect spring weather. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Tomorrow is bowling and Jenny Craig weigh in. (I think it's measuring day as well, oops better get the sit ups in, lol). I'm off to the high school track for a 4 lap jaunt with my girlfriend.
Hugs xx

Ps. I think the new total is 20 lbs, but I'll know more tomorrow.
