Inspired By Grace

Happy Sunday!

I can't believe the weekend is over. We actually had decent weather however, today it did start raining in the afternoon. I am very excited this cute little girl will be moving to our home this week. Her name is Grace and she is 8 1/2 weeks old. I am not sure my other two girls will be as excited as I am. She is a Schnoodle and will be between 12 - 18 lbs. I will post more pictures at the end of the week after she arrives.

She inspired me to make this card for Midweek Magnolia's use two characters. I used a lot of my new goodies on this Criss Cross Card.

Here is the recipe I used to make this card.

Magnolia Stamp - Wilma with Rose & Rose Scent Tilda
Glitz Paper - French Kiss
Petaloo Premier Flower - The Penny Lane Garden Collection
Prima Flower
Poppy Stamp Die - Ivy Tendrils
Postcard Stamp
Liquid Glass to make her buttons shine

Here is a close-up of Tilda:
