Magnolia Angel

Election day is finally here, that means the deluge of ads and phone calls will finally stop for awhile. The one good thing about today is that I have it off and I have all sorts of fun things planned for myself. The hubster will be at work, the boys will be at school so there is absolutely no guilt in taking the day for myself.

Over the weekend I finished up this Magnolia card I had started earlier in the week. She was colored but my inspiration to finish it into a card just was not there. Sometimes it is best to walk away for a bit. Once I had a fresh perspective, I combined some Basic Grey and Echo Park paper for a bit of a non-traditional color scheme. The stars are covered in glitter pen for sparkle.
I always show Greg my creations and he is the dutiful husband, oohing and aahing. When he saw this card his first response wasn't an ooh or an aah but rather, "where is her mouth?". I tried to explain to him that Magnolia images are all drawn that way. He wanted me to draw one in. Sheesh, and totally ruin it? He just shrugged his shoulders.

That's it for me, I have places to go, people to see. No doubt my day off will fly by.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I appreciate it!
