I'm back and now living in a new city!!!

Hi Everyone,

It's been soooo long from my last post but I finally moved from Cleveland to a warmer North Carolina (also a little bit closer to home...Miami :) I am still settling down. Today I bought some more Recollections cubes from Michael's and am still organizing my scrapping supplies. I will show a few pictures of my new little corner soon.

My dear friend Cindy asked me to be part of her Magnolia Stamp Lover designer team and today is my first post for this week challenge. The talented girls from MSLDT wants you to make a card using just sentiment stamps from Magnolia. No Tilda's or Edwin's, just sentiment stamps. I must confess that I had a hard time because I never made a card with just a sentiment before, but at the end I liked the final result. I used the sentiment "God Jul" from Christmas-2008 collection. I added some "crackle accent" to the letters to give them more dimension. Below is the list with all the materials that I used. The challenge is running between until March 24th at 11:59pm

Stamp: "God Jul" from Magnolia Christmas Collection 2008
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Distress inks. ( I mixed a little bit of "Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Antique linen)
Papers: My Mind's Eye ( Lost & Found- Union Square Collection)
Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities- Lacey Circles. Doohickey's Cutting Dies (Wedding Collecting Tilda Lace, Peony Petals and Spruce)
Embellishments: Crackle Accent, eyelets, brads and gold pearls. Liquid applique and platinum stickle.

Below is a card that I made for a friendly and nice lady that I met here in NC. Her mom's birthday was March 10th and she asked me to make something special for her. I wasn't happy with the result but this was my first card after 5 months without touching a ink or a brush...but she like it... :)

I wish you all a great weekend.

LIM :)
