Mama Always Said..................

...............Imitation is the best form of flattery. So, I must say I am flattered to see several imitations of my Just Magnolia card floating around out there. I am so honored that I was able to provide inspiration for some of you - thanks for letting me know!!!

It is such a great design that I decided to "imitate" it myself this week for the Inky Impressions blog challenge "Tag, Your It" challenge - I did change it up just a bit by putting the image on the tag and inside the pocket instead of outside the pocket but I stuck with the basic overall design.

Inky Impressions were generous to offer a digi design to use for the challenge so that even us that are unfortunate to own any Inky Impressions at this time could play along!!!

My card:

the tag by itself:


and Copics used:


Isn't this image just adorable??? I totally love it and plan to use it again soon!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

PS: This design was originally inspired by the weekly challenge at Just Magnolia using the fab sketch by Martine!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
