Magnolia Love

Hello my blogging friends. So much for my being back, huh. It's been crazy around my house and to be honest I've had a bit of a time getting back into things after my time away plus I set out to make some gifts for some people in may family and I got stuck. I felt like if I started anything else I wouldn't get back to it and to be honest...maybe it would have helped. At any rate now they are still not completely finished because we got hit with some really cold weather and I can't clear coat them in the cold, grr. However, I figured at least they are otherwise finished and I can move on. 

So,  I've actually had this....

finished for several days now, but I've been swamped. I followed the current sketch at CLP and this actually would have been done sooner were in not for those two pieces of ribbon on the side.  I looked and looked thru my stuff before I finally spotted that ribbon and then I wasn't sure if I could put it that far down, but i figure were usually allowed some leeway, so I went with it.

Here's a close up of the adorable pair...

Don't you just love them?? I just had to have them! funnily enough I colored them up to resemble skin and hair colors of my husband and myself, but I will never give it to him, that would just be a waste. He does not appreciate these things at all. Although, maybe he will start... Yesterday my daughter and myself took him some homemade chocolates, a ballon, and some other goodies and he came home and said he was the envy of the office.

Ok, I think I've done enough blabbering now, sorry about that. Clearly I don't get to talk to people enough,lol. Hope you like my card, I'll actually be back a bit later today with another. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
