Grown Up Maggie
Hi all! I've been away for over a week and I'm so behind on my stamping and posting. My plan was to schedule this post on "Grown Up Maggie" to post yesterday, but I messed up somewhere and it didn't post, so it's a day late!! I was in NM visiting mom for Mothers Day! And while I was there, got bronchitis and ear infections and lost my voice. I ended up at the Urgent Care on Mother's Day! Ughhh!! Anyhow, all is well, I'm home and taking one more day to rest (still can't talk) but the plan is to return to work tomorrow for one day of catch up there... Now back to stamping... This card if for the (now) bi-weekly Creative Belli Challenge. Chris asked us to create a card using the go-jus colors of Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, and Cameo Coral. So that was the easy part!! Then, I really wanted to get caught up on my Doubledog Dare Challenges and our hostess Joan, of Stamping with a Passion fame, wanted us to make a Mother's Day card and include an article of clothing. This was the not-so-easy-part!! I remembered some cute stamps I recently got from SugarNelli and found this little cutie! Her name is "Dress Up Maggie" so I embellished her with a grown up pearl necklace, a fun fuzzy boa, and a fancy dancy big-girl purse! This became my Mother's Day card to my mom because inside I wrote "I always wanted to grow up to be just like you!". Hope you are inspired to join in these fun challenges!! Be sure to head over to the Creative Belli Challenge blog to link your card so we can all oooh and awe!! Then check out what the rest of the creative Belli Challenge team did with this challenge! You can also upload to SCS using keyword CBC65. If you want to join in the DDC by making a card with an article of clothing, please do!! Leave me a comment with a link to your card so we can all find your creation! Or upload to SCS using keyword DDC!! There's no time limit, we'd love to see what you did!! Thanks for checking in!!
