Need a Friend... I'm All EARS!

Today is Saturday which means it's my day to post over at the KL Stampin N Scrappin Blog! (sorry I'm a little late posting, but I'm having internet connection probs...again!) Have you seen the amazing new Magnolias in the store?? They are super duper CaUUUUTE!! This elephant is from the Magnolia Pet Collection, (which is now in stock!). I used this week's Friday Sketchers sketch as well as the color challenge from the KLSNS Girls' PCP group this month. Come join us!! The colors are Bashful Blue, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip (or colors close to that). There's always great prizes to be won including a free Magnolia stamp!!
I generated the sentiments on my computer and I cut out the one on the front using the Nestabilities Tags Trio, which reminds me...there's ONE of these sets left and it's 25% OFF right now!! I also double stamped the ears and pop dotted those with big fat pop dots:
Kelly is now taking preorders for the brand new Magnolia Lazy Days of Summer Collection!! If you haven't seen these yet, I suggest popping on over there and taking a look--they are too cute for words! And remember, preorder or not, if you spend $50, you get $10 OFF using coupon code JULY50 til the end of this month!! =0)

Have a super weekend, and thanks for you comments on my new blog template. I hear that it loads much faster now...especially for those of you with dial up. YAY...it was worth it. :0)

What a cutie! You and Debbie P rock those Magnolias. Nice touch with the bubble embossed brown mat... really sets off the image.

By the way, just FYI, at least on my computer... the row with the links to your family blog, gallery, etc., is partially covered up so you can't actually see the whole thing and the links. I browse with Mozilla, so maybe that's it?
