Happy Belated Birthday-Magnolia Stamp Lover Challenge

I know I haven't posted in awhile, still working on my "project". But had to take a welcoming brake to make two cards for work. The first is for the Postman who delivers to our school. When he saw a card that I made, he asked me to make a card for his Aunt who's birthday was last month. Hard to believe that the Postman is sending a belated birthday He asked that I use anything educational related. So I thought this adorable Magnolia was just the right one. It was also my first attempt at darker skin tones. Thanks to Suzanne Deans tutorial I was able to accomplish this. Anyway, I just used this image for the calendar so it was still out. So, can you guess what month they were for? 9 months down and 3 to go which technically is only 36 left.. Hopefully I will be done by next week. At least that's my goal.

This is for the Magnolia Stamp Lovers Challenge Punch it Up!!since I used my Nellie Snellin Flower Punch for the flowers, SU Corner Punch & the SU tag punch for the sentiment

LOL on that chicken card, cute! :) Your first card is gorgeous, so pretty in that blue! Really like those flowers too. I still can't believe you did so many sets, your doing great on them you'll be done before you know it! I finally finished right before my deadline of Thanksgiving, whew! AND I did four extras with a different theme/design, call me crazy. ;) ~hugs
