Good morning to you all. Today is the start of the Pink Magnolia Blog Hop so in honor of that I made a Magnolia card to share. Now if I can just figure out how to add it to the hop... oh well, I have a week or two to do it! Anyway it is the 60's Magnolia and I colored her with Copics and then put Diamond Glaze over her sucker. For the bar stool I used a scrap of silver sparkle paper I had left over and I do mean a scrap. Glad I didn't toss that teeny tiny piece of paper! The juke box and records was from a very very old Personal Stamp Exchange set. They are foam stamps ladies! Remember them? I knew if I hung on to it long enough I would find a use for it. Anyway they are also colored with Copics and have Diamond Glaze on the top. Tilda and the juke box are popped up with pop dots. The background paper is from a Basic Grey Porcelain paper pad. I think she is adorable sitting there waiting for her friends to come by. When I took the picture of the card, I couldn't resist grabbing some of my old 45's and putting her amongst them. I know, it really dates me but I was a teenager in the 60's! Just brought back so many memories for me. I spent the rest of the afternoon looking through all of my old 45's. Anyone else old enough to have some? Don't even ask me how I knew where they were. Just luck I think!
After you have checked out my card, be sure to hop on over to Jacque's blog to see her amazing card, and then follow her to visit the other blogs. http://www.jacquesmagnolias.blogspot.com/
