Sending Hugs – Jane’s Doodles Magnolia

MisplacedMojo.com MisplacedMojo.com

Two posts in one day?!? Hard to believe, I know! If you saw my last post, you know that Jane’s Doodles is having a challenge and the theme is Spring. And also like my last post, I have a friend that could use a pick me up. And what else could pick you up better than spring flowers that never die?!? Am I right? I think we’re all in need of a pick me up, and I hope to share as much crafty love as possible to uplift those around me, so they in turn can lift me up when I am down.

On to the card details… these beautiful flowers are from the Jane’s Doodles Magnolia set. I used every single image and watercolored them with a Tombow marker to get a variation in shades, and fussy cut them out. This set does not come with a sentiment, so I used Picked Raspberry oxide ink and the MFT Greetings Galore sentiment set from my previous card as I liked the sentiment and it was still on my desk. I die cut the white background with one of Altenew’s Layered Plaid cover dies and mounted that on a pink cardstock front before mounting that to a card base. Most of the flowers are glued flat to the card, but the top most flower is popped on foam tape. The inside is stamped Thinking of You, also from the MFT Greetings Galore set.

Take care of yourselves out there, my crafty friends. Try to remember to extend grace to others during these crazy times and to help others in need as you would wish them to help you if ever needed. Together we can rise above this and come out a stronger community on the other side. I’m probably preaching to the choir as crafters tend to be the most supportive people on the planet, but we need to voice of compassion so others can follow our lead. Be safe, be smart, and be crafty!

    • Thank you for the kind words Vicky! And it is always my pleasure to share the virtues of Evernote, especially in terms of crafting. So many times I save myself a purchase because I can instantly see all the sets I own with butterflies, or whatever, and realize I already have something similar or that I have an abundance already. And indispensable when picking products for challenges. My favorite part is being able to access my inventory anywhere. Can you tell I’m a fan? 😁
