Magnolia- Is this your egg?

I adore this little Edwin and chicken stamp.


I colored Edwin with colored pencils, then tricked him out with a background K&Co paper, a scrap of Basic Grey’s new Marrakech paper, and some cardstock that I ran through the cuttlebug with the distressed Stripes folder, and then sanded to give it an old barn door feel.  I think the card turned out just adorable.

The Butterfly Catcher


I find it amusing that suddenly I find myself CRAZY over butterflies, when I really haven’t cared for them for a few years. Go figure! I bet the new Magnolia Butterfly collection had something to do with the new found love of those *flutterbys*

Folded-heavy starch =)



I love these shirts!  After you get the first one figured out ( which isn’t really hard, especially when you use the Scor-pal) you can whip these out faster than taking the real kind out of the dryer.  A quick google on *Hawaiian Shirt Origami* will get you the directions.

The background PP is from a summery Colorbok pad, that I ran through the cuttlebug with the Distressed embossing folder. The shirts were made from a K&Co 4x6 mat pad. The sentiment is cut from  the Caligraphy CRICUT cartridge.
