Midweek Magnolias - Week 3, A Recipe

Another Wednesday morning, another new Midweek Magnolia theme, and this week we have a Recipe, 1-2-3.  Your project this week must include 1 Ribbon, 2 Pearls and 3 Flowers!  Easy-peasy, and the chance of a mystery prize from Magnolia themselves - who could want for more!!

I've gone back to basics with my card this week.  My short-term goal for 2012 is to master Copics!  This was going to be the subject (sort of!) for a future challenge at MM, but I'm having to re-think that one now (all will be revealed - watch this space!) because I have really fallen for my Copics and my collection is growing.  I know I have a long way to go to be up there with the best of them, but I am really enjoying the journey.  Anyways, I digress - this week I delved into my Maggies collection and decided that I wanted to use my earlier stamps a bit more.  I sold a number of them off before Christmas but I did hold onto those which are very dear to me, and this little lovely is the most dear of all because she was the one that got me started with Magnolias in the first place!!  She was the first one I bought and I was so excited when she popped through my door!  Here is my card:

I loved these little guys and gals long before they got hair (and socks!! LOL!) and my intention is to use my older stamps much more in the coming weeks.  The sentiment is one of my home-made rub-on's and the papers are from Grace Taylor's Vintage collection.

Thanks for stopping by and if you find yourself with a little time on your hands, please get over to Midweek Magnolias and join in.  The fantastic team have creates some wonderful samples for your inspiration so please go and say Hello to them too - they are just such a fabulous bunch! 

Pssst....  We're looking for Guest Desginers too - fancy it??  :o) xx
