Ms. Magnolia

Isn't she a sweetie!! This is a Magnolia stamp sent to me out of the goodness that is in her heart by Donna Mikasa of Hawaii. Donna and I were "hosti" together at the Hero Arts blog and she has become a good friend. She overwhelms me sometimes with her generosity! The package from Hawaii contained this adorable stamp, some 4x4 patterned papers, a Sharpie white poster pen, and some of Donna's amazing hand colored ribbon! I am thankful for the goodies, but most of all, thankful to call her friend.

The little birds are a digi download from "Fred She Said", a source for some really cute digi images.

Donna is the master of coloring with Copic markers and making darling cards. She works with digi and regular stamps. Her work is incredible! She has a blog called "Three Umbrellas". Look her up.
Here's the link: http://3umbrellas.blogspot.com/

Does anyone know why her blog is called "Three Umbrellas"? I have a little prize for the first person (besides Donna) to leave the right answer in a comment!

I am off to chop onions and celery in prepration for preparing stuffing tomorrow. I use a recipe from my beloved mother in law; the secret ingredient is applesauce! Yum! On that note, happy Thanksgiving everyone. See you after the holiday when the dishes are back in the china cabinet, the company has gone home, and the leftovers are almost gone! Bless us everyone!

I know! The literal translation of Donna's last name, Mikasa, is "Three umbrellas." Kasa=umbrella and mi=3 in Japanese. Love your charming card, Judy! :)
