Peanut

Once again it has been forever since I posted anything. I am hoping that I will be able to stamp more now that the wedding is over. I have so missed it. My dd made a beautiful bride. The wedding was lovely - simple but lovely. Now on to my card.


This is mini Peanut from the fall Magnolia collection. Isn't she a dear. Her little pleated skirt and sweater reminded me of my high school days so I colored them in my school colors - red and gold. Red and gold is still one of my favorite color combinations - my kitchen is done in red and yellow. I colored her with prisma color pencils. I don't know if you can tell but I made a subtle plaid on the skirt and scarf. The tree was done with memory box dies. I colored some of the leaves with copic markers. The dp is basic grey. I added some yellow rhinestones from Queen & Co. and some nail head stickers. The owl is from a set for the now defunct Angel Company. I just love fall.
