Just Magnolia and Stamptacular Sunday

Good morning,

Today I have a card finished and will be posting at Just Magnolia and Stamptacular Sunday. I have used the sketch from Just Magnolia and the theme for Stamptacular Sunday. I have had a hard time making Father type cards and things and with Father's Day just around the corner I thought that I should try. You see my father passed away very suddenly 3 years ago now last month. He was my world, I was his little girl and it's been hard as I use to talk to him on the phone several times in a week. Oh sorry I kinda did get off track here........ anyhooooooooo As I all but finished my card I decided to put the Magnolia wording **Just Sittin' here thinking of you** on my card because as I made it thought of my father and not making him cards and special things anymore . And that cute little Edwin is just sittin' on that cute little stump. :o)

I do have the coloring on this card a tad dark. Well, I think I do anyway. What do you think??



Papers: bazill card stocks, scrapworks,Litlle YELLOW Bike, Jenni Bowlin Studio

Stamps: Edwin by Magnolia, Butterflies by Magnolia, stump by Whiff of Joy
Ink: Memento, watercolors pencils and copic markers to color , Destressed inks, to shade

Bellies: ribbon, brads, stickles, wire
