Now don't forget, you still have time to enter our CropStop Challenge-Making a Claudine inspired Artist Trading Card (ATC). But HURRY, because you only have until Wednesday evening (tomorrow) to link up your project for a chance at a CropStop gift certificate (there are only 3 people who have entered the challenge so far, so you really have an awesome chance of winning!).
An ATC is only 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and they go together pretty quick, especially if you use your Maggie stamp as the base of your photo image instead of hand-drawing the body like I did on my previous post. ATCs are also a great way to use those Magnolia Minis! Many people make ATCs ahead of time, and then add them as the focal image to a card. There are all sorts of things you can do with an ATC.
Okay enough talking and on to my card:
Here's a side view:
These are the supplies I used:Image: Magnolia Sister and Brother (stamped on Neenah Smooth with Memento Ink)

I'm also going to enter this in Magnolia Stamp Lovers Blog Challenge to use Buttons and Bling.
I left the card in front of the coffee maker so my husband could see it in the morning. He probably won't like the picture of his face because he's lost a lot of weight since then and his face isn't as chubby. But, I wanted to surprise him with his own card and just remind him that we think He's the Best! We love you bunches honey!
As always, I'm a little behind on things and March 1st sprung up on me before I knew it. I celebrated my 1-year Blog Anniversary on Sunday, Feb. 27th....yep, it came and went and I didn't get my blog candy posted! YES, I have some blog candy that I need to post so check back in a day or two....I still have to take pictures of it!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to join in our CropStop Challenge.
Big hugs and love to all of you!
