Our New Inspiration Challenge at Magnolia-lcious

Hi Maggie Lovers :o)

It's a new Inspiration Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.

As you know it is TRACY'S month for the Challenges and she has picked a beauty for us this time:


Adorable little room isn't it? Lots of ideas from this one!
I do hope you will come join us for this pretty Inspiration Challenge.

I choose baby of course LOL, and PINK and BROWN

I tried to make something I haven't done before as well.......

Here is my 'Arty Picture ' :o)

* see my little baby shoes* ?

Here is what I made :

** edit - Tingla can be found under Tilda images at Diana's Store. She is # 286 **
I have used 'Sitting Baby Tingla' from Diana's store but I am afraid I can't find her anywhere :o(
I bought her a very long time ago and at that time I didn't write down the numbers of the stamps or the Collection that they came from. I just wanted to use a different 'baby' than the new ones that have just come out. I am really sorry!

Here is some close up's for you:

Front of my card

Close up of Tingla:

Close up of bow and soother:

The brad actually says 'baby' repeated around the flower part of it in pink on the brown around the outside. I wasn't able to get a picture that didn't glare :o(

Here are pictures of the inside:

And a couple of close ups!

I hope I didn't bore you with so many pictures? I had fun making this card :o)

Please remember to visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to see each of the Design Team's beautiful work!!

Also don't forget that Diana gives out a $25.00 Gift Certificate for the winner of each Challenge!!! She is so generous :o)
You don't have to be scared to enter the Challenge. We just want you to have fun with us.
Remember to use a Magnolia image and to get your ideas from the Inspiration Photo.
No need to worry if you haven't made a card before or if this is your first time in a challenge - Mr Linky picks by number and everyone as an equal chance of winning. Just think you could add more Magnolia Stamps to your Collection :o)
Hope to see you there!!!
Love, Candy

A brand new Colour Challenge

Hello friends :o)

Hope you are all doing very well.

We have a new Colour Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
This month TRACY has chosen the colours PINK, BLACK, & RED.
I was very lucky to find all I needed for my card right here at home in my 'stash'!
Here is her picture of the colours:

Since I don't have any of the new stamps yet from the 'You're So Special' Collection I have used 'Tilda with Hanging Heart' # 3081 at Diana's store, from the 'Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010'
I think she works OK for Valentine's Day. I didn't have to make a Valentine card but choose to do so....

Here is a closer picture of Tilda:
Oh dear I am having so much trouble with my camera these days :o(

Let's hope the next ones are better, here is the bow with 4 loops:

and the inside:

Hope you enjoy my project this time :o)
Don't for get to pop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to look at the beautiful work the Design Team has made.

We won't lie

Hello and Happy Sunday!
Just a quick little post today.
Thought I would show you the card I made for our Grandson, Brandon, for Valentine's Day.
This is a super sweet image from Sassy Cheryl! He is called 'Pinocchio's Valentine Lie'.
He was fun to colour :o)
On the inside I wrote a sentiment on my computer that says: We won't lie.....We want you to be our Valentine. It is from Grandpa and me.
Hope you like it.

Here is the inside:
Love, Candy
