Thankful Magnolia

Happy Thursday friends!  I am officially on summer break for the next 8 weeks...hooray!  It's a cold, dreary and rainy day today...a perfect day for stamping and playing along with this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge!
You guys...I still haven't placed my order from the new catalog!!!  What is wrong with me?!?!  I've been struggling to decide what I want to get first and not break the bank by buying it all at once...the struggle is REAL!  I think I have finally decided what my first order will be. Now I just need to commit!  In the meantime, I'm still having fun playing with the all of my pre-order items, including the Magnolia Lane Suite.  
I think it's safe to say that I am addicted to coloring with the Stampin' Blends.  Seriously...I don't think I've made a card lately where I haven't used them!  I loved coloring when I was little and still love it today.  My youngest loves to color's my favorite go-to activity for him when he needs to chill out!
Just look at how beautifully the Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow colors blend!
As I was cutting out the first magnolia I colored, my die slipped a bit...GRRRR!  That always frustrates me, but it happens to all of us!  In my frustration, I posted a picture showing my mistake.  Guess one even noticed!  This was such a HUGE reminder to me to find beauty in everything, even our mistakes.  We are our biggest critics, always quick to point out our flaws and there is NO reason for it!  I'm so grateful for this reminder and all of the amazing people in my life!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black, Whisper White, Magnolia Lane DSP
Ink ~ Petal Pink, Memento, Stampin' Blends:  Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake
Stamp Set ~ Good Morning Magnolia
Other Supplies ~ Magnolia Memory Dies, Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins

It's looking like we have rain for a bit longer...more time for me to stamp!

Have a great day!

Happy Stamping!
