4th Tuesday at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog

Hello Friends and Maggie Lovers :o)

It is almost the end of January!
I can't get over how the months fly by.

We don't have much snow,
however walking is very treacherous 
with the inch or more of ice lying on it!

Hope the rest of you are doing OK? 


is ready today.
I hope you will 'come on over' and check
out the DT's cards;
they are smashing as always!!

This month is Cabio's turn once again.
Here is her CHALLENGE picture:

I think you will notice that the DT
had many different ideas.

So, here is my try at it:

Here is a close up of Tilda:

Gosh, her hair is darker in real life.
I don't know why it isn't in the photo? 
I am not at all happy with the shadow under
Tilda :o(  Should have gone with a bench!!

On we go to the inside. This is the left
side of the card:

and here is the RHS:

The little pink bird is a mirror
from Heide Swapp!

Tilda with cozy heart #3043
Sentiment: You've stollen my heart #744

I got my stamps from 
at her fantastic online store!

( it seems both of these stamps are sold out
at the moment. I am sure Diana has more coming -
or you can get in touch with her and order them)


We always have a contest over at the CHALLENGE BLOG
Diana gives out a

to one lucky person chosen at random.
Give our Challenge a try any time.
Maybe you will be the winner!

The whole DESIGN TEAM is listed
on the right hand side of my blog.
You may click on their names and 
be taken right to them.

So that's it from me today.
See you soon.

Gorgeous Candy!! I smiled when I read your comment about the shadow. When I first saw your card I thought how well you had done the shading under her. I think it is excellent. Love your card inside and out, perfect!

Eulanda said...

Candy this is gorgeous! I love all the different layers and I also really like your take on the inspiration from that photo. As for your shadow underneath Tilda I think it looks just find. Like she's sitting on the ground but if you want, adding texture might help. I add glitter to mine sometimes cuz I get so bored with it. LOL!! I love that you did the inside too. Far much more adventurous then I am. LOL!! Great job!! Hugs!
