Finally...I'm back ... My longest post!!!

Hi Everyone,

Oh wow..It's been almost a month from my last card. I have a new computer, but I'm still going through some difficulties to recovery old cards because I lost tons of pictures I didn't save. My husband is always telling me that I need to save everything, but who would think my computer was gonna crash?.. LOL That's my excuse :))

Well, today I want to show you a card that I made for "A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog". This week you have to make a card for a kid and I made this card for my niece who recently turned 5 years old. On She's a beautiful girl with blond hair and blue eyes. I decorated the front so much that at the end I did not have enough room for the number 5 so I decided to do something on the back side of the card. I can't show the inside because it will be a surprise for my niece and my sister in law :))

The stamp is Whipper Snapper and I added crystal clear to the shoes, dress, ribbon and the gift. Flowers are from Prima, Butterfly and scalloped punch are from Martha Stewart. Buttons, swirl and drew drops from stash.

This week's sponsor is the wonderful store "Roses on Paper...and Magnolia's too". Check out their website because they have tons of new products: Magnolia's, Sara Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, Penny Black and many more, including Basic Grey paper. Talking about "Roses on Paper" I have other card using their Magnolia stamps that I want to show you. I made this card with for a friend who will receive it on the mail very soon with some stamped images inside . I hope she like it. I was afraid of mixing too many patterns, but I want to give it a try.

I want to thank each one of you who sent me emails and wrote comments during this time that I was without computer. Thank you so much!! I miss you all !!! I still have to check around and visit tons of blogs, so please be patience because I will be visiting your blog and leave comments as always.

Last week, I received my first DT package from Silly Monkeys Craft and I'm working on some projects. I was really excited with the nice stamps and goodies Bryony kindly sent to me... :)) Thanks Bryony! :))

Some friends asked me why my roll blog do not get updated. I have no idea. If any of you knows how to handle this issue, please send me an email to magnoliacards@yahoo.com. I will appreciate it.

Hi Lim, I was starting to get a little worried about you my dear. I have been thinking of you lots but didn't want to keep emailing you as I thought you would have so many messages. I'm so glad your back and loved to see your two beautiful cards. I love the first for your niece and just so pretty and the whipper snapper girl is just too cute. I love how you have decorated the back of her card. Your other card is also gorgeous and love the stamps you have used and your beautiful colouring. My yummy DT box also arrived today. Just found out details of our flights for next year and i'm going to book them tonight! Yipppeee.. only downside is that we are flying on my actual birthday. Love and Hugs, Nikki x
