Magnolia with Distress Markers

Hi Friends!  I know it's Tuesday, but hope you had a nice weekend!  Phew...we had a VERY busy week last week! We were out EVERY NIGHT except for Monday.  I was so happy to be home yesterday (even if we DID order take out!).  I was able to make a few cards over the last few days so this week should be busy on the blog :)

Before I go any further........I want to wish my Bestie CINDY a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!
This virtual cake is for you!   :)

OK!  Here's today's card:

I colored up Tilda with my Distress Markers and if anyone recognizes the sketch layout - I did use one from out there in craftland - but I don't remember from where. The paper is from American Crafts and I added glossy accents to the puddle and the raindrops.

By the way - thanks for all your well wishes for Buddy. He's doing really well, but just a bit itchy in his face since he can't scratch himself! LOL.  Bandages get changed Wednesday and then he's got one more week of the dreaded cone!

Thanks for your visit!

Poor little Buddy, glad he is doing better, but how awful to wear the "cone of shame" :) Love that movie. It looks like you have conquered the TH markers, this is so pretty and so soft. Love it.

Maria it goes without saying, but I will anyway - your coloring is fabulous!! Love the way you pair fun designer papers into your cards. You have a great eye for color.

This is adorable, Maria! Love the mix of papers and the bit of scalloped edging. Fabulous coloring job, too.
So glad to hear that Buddy is hanging in there with that awful cone!

So pretty - and a great job with those Distress Markers! Love the DP you used on this.

Hope Cindy has a great birthday and know she's going to love that little puppy card! CUTE!

Glad Buddy is doing ok and thanks for the update. He just needs to stay away from snapping turtles now!
